Wit and Wisdom


You can learn a lot from Indians. They say you must never disagree with a man while you are facing him. Go around behind him and look at the same way they do; look over his shoulder and get his viewpoint, then go back and face him, and you will have a different idea.

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

Whether your parents are good or bad, that’s not your business, but stick with ’em when they in trouble.

No man is great if he think he is.

Liberty don’t work as good in practice as it does in speeches.

A fool that knows he is a fool, is one that knows he don’t know all about anything. But the fool that don’t know he is a fool, is the one that think she knows all about anything.

A remark generally hurts in proportion to it’s truth
