Will Rogers quotes swiped from www.truecowboy.com

There’s two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither one works.

 Never miss a good chance to shut up.

We can’t all be heroes because someone has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.

If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

I never expected to see the day when girls would get sunburned in the places they now do.

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.

What the country needs is dirtier fingernails and cleaner minds.

Diplomacy is the art of saying “Nice doggie” until you can find a rock.

An onion can make people cry but there’s never been a vegetable that can make people laugh.

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.
