Winsome Will

“Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.”   Will Rogers

Today is Will Rogers’ birthday, so let’s begin our week with some gentle wit and wisdom:

“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.”

“Why don’t they pass a constitutional amendment prohibiting anybody from learning anything? If it works as well as prohibition did, in five years we will have the smartest people on earth.”

“You’ve got to go out on a limb sometimes – that’s where the fruit is.”

“Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for.”

“It’s great to be great, but it’s greater to be human.”

“There is nothing as easy as denouncing … It don’t take much to see that something is wrong but it does take some eyesight to see what will put it right again.”

“A fanatic is always the fellow that is on the opposite side.”

“I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.”

“We will never have true civilization until we have learned to recognize the rights of others.”

“I am going to jump out some day and be indefinite enough about everything that they will call me a politician, then run on a platform of question marks, and be elected unanimously.”

“There are two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither works.”

“If you want to be successful, it’s just this simple. Know what you are dong, Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing.”

“Always drink upstream from the herd.”

Will surely had a way with words! And now, amused and emboldened, let’s all write on!
