Cowboy Sayings

Don't judge people by their relatives.

The best way out of a difficulty is through it.

A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it.

When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

Talk slowly, think quickly.

We all got pieces of crazy in us, some bigger pieces than others.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
Don’t go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path. . . and leave a trail.
Don't interfere with something that ain't botherin' you none.
Speak your mind, but ride a fast horse.
If ya don’t know a where’s you’re a goin, it’d be a good idea not to use yer spurs.
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.
Whoever said a horse was dumb, was dumb.
The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with watches you shave his face in the mirror every morning.
When you give a personal lesson in meanness to a critter or to a person, don't be surprised if they learn their lesson.
If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.

Don't worry about bitin' off more'n you can chew; your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger'n you think.

Generally, you ain't learnin' nothing when your mouth's a-jawin'.

Tellin' a man to git lost and makin' himdo it are two entirely different propositions.

If you're ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there with ya.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
If you’re riding a high horse there’s no way to get down gracefully.
When you're throwin' your weight around, be ready to have it thrown around by somebody else.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back.

Never miss a good chance to shut up.
