If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill 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. • Don't be banging your shin on a stool that's not in the way. • Most of the stuff people worry about ain’t never gonna happen anyway. • Don’t judge folks by their relatives. • Silence is sometimes the best answer. • If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’. • Always drink upstream from the herd. • 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 a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second time. • Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God. • Most times, it just gets down to common sense.
