my dad told me when we had our first child

" the very best thing you can do for your kids is love their mother"

Anyone that has been married for 35 years will understand just how profound that observation was.  Its not always easy  :p .

"If wishes were horses beggars would ride" supposedly has its origins in the 16th century.

One of my favorites is:

Never wressle with a pig. You both get dirty and the pig likes it.

My uncle said this, he had a lot of em. "If you're gonna be dumb. you gotta be tough".

"“Consider the rights of others before your own feelings, and the feelings of others before your own rights.” John Wooden

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

Mark 12:30-31

These came from my first conversation with an older gentleman I wanted to hunt on.

" Love makes the world go round but money greases the wheel".

"The main problem with people is they just don't know."

To drink by:“Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting ‘Holy ****…what a ride!”

― Hunter S. Thompson

To err is human...to forgive is not the Marine Corps way!

It fun till someone gets hurt....then it's hilarious!

One of my old drinking buddies used to say, "There's a lot of fellas who can drink more than I can but there's very few that can get any drunker!"
