As an old farm boy, there is more truth here than almost any place you look.

  • 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 just happen overnight.
  • Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.
  • John Deere 40-1952-1955
  • Never 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 and 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.
  • John Deere-B -1935-1952
  • 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, and leave the rest to God.
  • Don't pick a fight with an old man.  He is too old to fight, too proud to run, too stubborn to quit - - he'll just kill you.
