Liberty don't work as good in practice as it does in Speech.
Never miss a good chance to shut up.
If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
DOUBLE YOUR MONEY
The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back into your pocket.
THE CAT IN THE BAG
Lettin' the cat out of the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back.
FULL OF BULL
After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him. The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.
ABOUT GROWING OLDER
Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.
You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it's called golf.
Finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you are old.
(A little humor is always good. So I thought I would share these little tidbits from Will Rogers compiled by my friend, W. F. Bell.)

“I find from the Word of God that two roads lie through the wilderness of this world. The one, at its beginning, is pleasant to carnal nature, being strewed with forbidden pleasures, sensual delights and materialistic gratifications, but growing darker and more crooked and thorny as it advances, it ends abruptly in eternal misery.
The other, difficult at the entrance, requires many sacrifices and much self-denial; but gradually increasing in light and beauty, it terminates in the blissful regions of immortal glory.
In which of these roads am I now walking?”
In SPIRITUAL EXERCISES OF THE HEART or CHRISTIAN RETIREMENT by Thomas Reade, 1837
