Will Rogers

William Penn Adair “Will” Rogers (1879-1935) was a Cherokee-American cowboy, comedian, humorist, social commentator, vaudeville performer and actor. He died in a plane crash in 1935 and was one of the great political sages of our country. Enjoy the following quotes:

I never yet met a man that I didn't like.

Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.

Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

Never miss a good chance to shut up.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back in your pocket.

There are three kinds of men:
..The ones that learn by reading.
..The few who learn by observation.
..The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.

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.
