Advice from An Old Farmer

Here are many good pieces of advice for anyone. I put my favorites in blue - but I really like them all. What are your favorites?


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

Keep skunks and bankers 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 you know is meaner than you.

It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

Every path has a few puddles.

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 bothering 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. Leave the rest to God.





Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he might just kill you.

Most times, it just gets down to common sense.

Hi PK, Today I'm feeling "The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin’." Good point. Jumping around a few puddles today and got whispered to recently enough that my ears are still paying attention. Have a great day! Amy

I am just catching up around blogland this morning. These were all great. My grandmother was famous for her sayings.

"You've made your bed, now lie in it."

Ella Says To PK -
"Good Friends Don't Let You Do Stupid Things...... Alone."
