Getting to the heart of the matter with heart

Good Day Everyone,

Will Rogers had a way of getting to the heart of the matter (whatever matter he happened to be writing/talking about) with heart with fewer words than anyone I have run across. After this weekend’s rallies, I thought it might be fun to take a break and see what Mr. Rogers had to say 70 or 80 years ago that in all likelihood is still relevant today. The first quote seems to fit Mr. Walker to a T (I believe he is most definitely the third type of man referenced by Mr. Rogers):

“There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.”

“The worst thing that happens to you may be the best thing for you if you don’t let it get the best of you.”

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

“There’s no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you.”

“An ignorant person is one who doesn’t know what you have just found out.”

“I belong to no organized party. I am a Democrat.”

“Nothing you can’t spell will ever work.”

“Always drink upstream from the herd. ”

“Never miss a good chance to shut up.”

“You know everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.”

“A fool and his money are soon elected.”

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

“If Stupidity got us into this mess, then why can’t it get us out?”

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

“If the world comes to an end, I want to be in Cincinnati. Everything comes there ten years later.”

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

“People’s minds are changed through observation and not through argument.”

“So let’s be honest with ourselves and not take ourselves too serious, and never condemn the other fellow for doing what we are doing every day, only in a different way.”

“The fellow that can only see a week ahead is always the popular fellow, for he is looking with the crowd. But the one that can see years ahead, he has a telescope but he can’t make anybody believe that he has it.”

“Things ain’t what they used to be and never were.”

“Do the best you can, and don’t take life too serious.”

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