Some Cowboy Philosophy
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.
It don't take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.
Never hit a man who's chewin' tobacco.
Don't never interfere with something that ain't botherin' you none.
Love your neighbor but keep your fences.
Rain dancin' only works if you have good timing.
The easiest way to eat crow is while it's still warm. The colder it gets, the harder it is to swaller.
Don't worry about biting off more than you can chew. Your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger than you think.
Always drink upstream from the herd.
If you get to thinking you're a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else's dog around.
Never ask a barber if he thinks you need a haircut.
Telling a man to go to hell and making him do it are two entirely different things.
Trust everybody, but always cut the cards.
If you're gonna run, run like hell. If your mind's not made up, don't use your spurs.
You ain't generally learning nothing when your mouth is a-moving.
If you're riding ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.
Never kick a fresh cow patty on a hot day.
When you give a lesson in meanness to a critter or a person, don't be surprised if they learn their lesson.
Letting the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back.
Never drop your gun to hug a grizzly bear.
If it don't seem like it's worth the effort, it probably ain't.
Never miss a good chance to shut up.
