“A Farmer’s Advice”

I shared part of an excerpt this past Sunday entitled, “A Farmer’s Advice.” It is printed below. For a variation of the full quotation, see the “Appleseeds” website at: http://www.appleseeds.org. Enjoy!

“Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight, and bull-strong…

Life is simpler when you plow around some stumps…

Hornets are considerably faster than a John Deere tractor…

Words that soak into your ears are whispered, not yelled…

Meanness don’t just happen overnight…

Forgive your enemies not just because Jesus said so, but because it messes up their heads…

Never corner something that you know is meaner than you are…

A dog can whip a pig most every time, but in the end, both will be dirty and the pig likes it that way…

Most of the stuff people worry about ain’t never gonna happen…

Don’t judge folks by their relatives…

Sometimes silence is the best answer…

Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second time…

Don’t interfere with somethin’ that ain’t botherin’ you none…

Always drink upstream from herd…

Good judgment comes from experience, and a whole lot of experience comes from bad judgment…

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.”
