Will Rogers

I was looking for a pick-me-up and settled on Will Rogers:
-- Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
-- 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.
-- I guess there is nothing that will get your mind off everything like golf. I have never been depressed enough to take up the game, but they say you get so sore at yourself you forget to hate your enemies.
         -- Why don't they pass a constitutional amendment prohibiting anybody from learning anything? If it works as well as prohibition did, in five years Americans would be the smartest race of people on Earth.
-- Diplomacy is the art of saying 'Nice doggie' until you can find a rock.
