Will Rogers Quotes

Allow me to share some timeless wisdom from Native American Indian, Will Rogers.

"Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate; now what's going to happen to us with both a Senate and a House?"

"Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for."

"Diplomacy is the art of saying 'Nice doggie' until you can find a rock."

"Don't gamble; take all your savings and buy some good stock and hold it till it goes up, then sell it. If it don't go up, don't buy it."

"Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there."

"I belong to no organized party. I am a Democrat."

"Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip."

"Nothing you can't spell will ever work."

"On account of being a democracy and run by the people, we are the only nation in the world that has to keep a government four years, no matter what it does."

"Our constitution protects aliens, drunks and U.S. Senators."

"The best doctor in the world is the veterinarian. He can't ask his patients what is the matter-he's got to just know."

"There ought to be one day-- just one-- when there is open season on senators."

"There's no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you."

"This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer."

"We are all here for a spell; get all the good laughs you can."

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

"Rumor travels faster, but it don't stay put as long as truth."

"There is only one thing that can kill the Movies, and that is education."

"The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that's out always looks the best."

This kind of wisdom guided us through the first half of the 20th century. God grant that we regain it.

Romans 1:16

"Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life."
~ Henry L. Doherty
