    Sooo, what's one (or two) of your favorite quotes??

    The only time you have too much ammo is when your house is on fire..

    If at first you don't succeed ... destroy all evidence you ever tried.

    my parents always said I could become anything I wanted to be... so I became an a??hole.

    Better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.

    Deer tremble at the mention of my name.

    and of course my tag line too.

    "Any technique, however worthy and desirable, becomes a disease when the mind is obsessed with it Learn the principle, abide by the principle, and dissolve the principle. In short, enter a mold without being changed in it, and obey the principle without being bound by it."

    Only he can understand what a farm is, what a country is, who shall have sacrificed part of himself to his farm or country, fought to save it, struggled to make it beautiful. Only then will the love of farm or country fill his heart.

    My father always told me that I have "champagne taste on a beer budget."
    Yep, he was right.:D

    My favorite quotes are from my favorite Uncle Leonard who had a farm down in SE Kansas.

    "It's just cells." What he would say to us kids if we didn't want to eat something that was served for dinner.

    "Monkey, your brother's gone." What he would say to a cat that had a face like a monkey after a coyote ate his littermate.

    Leonard was a little strange. I think that's why I liked him so much. :laugh:
