Default ADVICE FROM AN OLD TENNESSEE MOUNTAIN MAN

Your fences need to be

Horse-high, pig-tight

And bull-strong.



Keep skunks

And lawyers

At a distance.



Life is simpler When you plow

Around the stump.



A bumble bee

Is considerably

Faster than

A John Deere tractor



Words that soak

Into your ears

Are whispered...

Not yelled.



Meanness

Don't jes'

Happen

Overnight.



Forgive your enemies

It messes up

Their heads.



Do not corner something

That just might be meaner than you.


It don't take

A very big person

To carry a grudge.



You cannot unsay A cruel,

Or unkind word.



Every path has

A few "cow pies ". . .



When you wallow with pigs,

Expect to get dirty.



The best sermons

Are lived,

not preached.



Most of the stuff

People worry about

Ain't never gonna

Happen anyway.



Don't judge folks

By their relatives.



Remember that silence

Is sometimes

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.



Timing has

A lot to do with

The outcome

Of a rain dance.



If you find yourself

In a hole,

The first thing to do

Is stop diggin'.



Sometimes you get,

And sometimes

You get got.



The biggest troublemaker

You'll probably ever

Have to deal with,

Watches you from

The mirror

Every mornin'.



Always drink

Upstream

From the herd.



Good judgment

Comes from

Experience,

And a lotta that

Comes from

Bad judgment.



Lettin' the cat

Outta the bag

Is a whole lot easier

Than puttin' it back in.



If you get to thinkin'

You're a person

Of some influence,

Try orderin'

Somebody else's

Dog around.



Live simply.

Love generously.

Care deeply.

Speak kindly.



Carry a .45,

Leave the rest

Up to God!

I believe a .45 was a black powder rifle squirel gun. But I may be wrong.
