“You cannot unsay a cruel word.”

“Every path has a few puddles.”

“When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.”

“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.”

“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.”

else’s dog around.”

speak kindly, and leave the rest to God.”
