Smoking Rebs Words of Common Sense
Smoking Rebs
Words of Common Sense

Little sayings that reflect a cowboy, redneck or week-end warrior point of view. Doesn't really matter if your ride has 4 legs, 2 wheels or 4 wheels supporting a bed and cab you'll find something that will have you nodding your head and saying "Yep, that's how it works." I do have to admit that I didn't actually gather all these together, a couple of Facebook friends get credit for that, they know who they are. I just liked them and thought they were worth sharing. Enjoy!

Don't name a pig you plan to eat

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance

Meanness doesn't happen overnight

Don't sell your mule to buy a plow

Don't corner something meaner than you

You can't unsay a cruel thing

Every path has some puddles

The best sermons are lived, not preached

Don't squat with your spurs on

Don't judge people by their relatives

Sometimes you get and sometimes you get got

Only cows know why they stampede

Always drink upstream from the herd

Never miss a good chance to shut up

Never drop your gun to hug a grizzly

Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco

There are more horses asses than horses

Horses are God's apology for man

Man, I will never forget old what's her name

A gun is a tool, no better or worse than any other tool

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

In the land of the blind, the man with one eye is King

Life's tough, it's even tougher if you're stupid

If it doesn't seem worth the effort, it probably isn't

Nothing keeps you honest more that witnesses

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom

There is a high cost to low living

A tyrant will always find a pretext for his tyranny

Going fast while you are lost won't help a bit

The bigger the mouth, the better it looks shut

The quieter you are the more you can hear

The quieter you are the more you can hear

Don't gobble in the woods during hunting season

If it doesn't seem like it's worth the effort,
it probably isn't

Quit spitting on the handle and get to hoeing

Folks don't change, they just get more so

Don't sneeze behind a skittish horse

Don't ride a new path at a full trot

Small minds and big mouths have a way of hooking up

A mule can't help it if his daddy is a jackass

Don't stand behind a coughing cow

An ounce of doing is worth a pound of talk

There are lots of country jobs, but few positions

Some fellahs have more wishbone than backbone

Necessity is the mother of invention

A shallow brook is noisiest

War is young men dying and old men talking

Sometime Silence is the best answer

When you lose, don't lose the lesson

The blue-jay doesn't scream without reason

Cobwebs across a hole mean nothing inside

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while

Even a broken watch is right-twice a day

Sometimes the memory is worse than the actual event

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump

A bumblebee is faster than a John Deere tractor

It doesn't take a very big person to carry a grudge

Forgive your enemies. It messes with their heads

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty

Most of the stuff people worry about never happens

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer

Don't interfere with something that isn't bothering you

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance

It's better to be a has-been than a never-was

Never ask a barber if he thinks you need a haircut

Stuff tends to break when it is loaned or borrowed

There is nothing like facts to mess up a good story

A man is more than just the worst thing he has ever done

Sometime not getting what you want is a stroke of luck

Country fences need to be horse high, pig tight,
and bull strong

It doesn't take a genius to spot a goat
in a flock of sheep

Words that soak into your ears are whispered,
not yelled

There's two theories to arguing with a woman.
Neither one works

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do
is stop digging

When you get to the end of your rope,
tie a knot and hang on

Like a good cowboy, a good hat just gets better
as it gets older

Myths are started as gossip, spread by fools
and accepted by idiots

Pretty words are not always true and true
words are not always pretty

What this country needs is dirtier fingernails
and cleaner minds

Don't make a long story short
just so you can tell another one

A wise man speaks because he has something to say,
a fool speaks because he has to say something

Never approach a bull from the front,
a horse from the rear, or a fool from any direction

You can have horses or you can have money,
but you can't have both

If you think you can or think you can't,
you're are probably right

Life ain't so short that you can't take time
to hear a man out

You are not being diplomatic just because
you put please in front of shut the hell up

There are rules about riding a horse,
but the horse won't necessarily know them

You generally learn the value of money
from the lack of it

Most anybody can be a cowboy
but it takes a damn genius to make money at it

If there is a hole in your story or your fence,
something you rather did not get out will

Money may buy you a dog but only love
can make him wag his tail

Never believe anybody that says
their horse doesn't kick

Trouble is a private thing,
don't lend it and don't borrow it

The fights you avoid do you far more good
than the ones you will win

Going to bed angry ain't no fun but
it's better than fighting all night

Man is the only critter who feels the need
to label things weeds or flowers

You cannot blame a worm for not wanting
to go fishing

A smart horse makes you work harder but
gives you the gift of knowledge

A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor,
a perfect horse never made a horseman

Being neighborly don't mean sticking your nose
in somebody's business

An ignorant fella is hell-bent
on proving his limitations

Firewood warms you twice, when you cut it
and when you burn it

It is easier to patch a broken mirror
than a reputation

If wishes were horses,
some folks would need a lot of hay

If you take the time it takes,
it takes less time

Things that annoy us about our horse,
can help us learn about ourselves

To not know some things is a normal milestone
on the way to knowledge

The greatest change will occur when we stop
believing we need to change

Forgetting and laughing is better
than remembering and being sad

The things we think we know
keep us from learning what we should know

Man often meets his destiny on the path
he chooses to avoid it

What weighs an ounce in the morning,
weighs a pound at night

Ducks flying overhead in the woods
are generally pointed for water

The worm don't see anything pretty
about the robin's song

Those who do not learn from history
are destined to repeat it

Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce

Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time

The easiest way to eat crow is while it's still warm. The colder it gets, the harder it is to swallow

If you get to thinking you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with watches you shave his face in the mirror every morning

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

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

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment

Letting the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back in

You can't tell how good a man or a watermelon is until they get thumped

When you give a lesson in meanness to a critter or a person, don't be surprised if they learn their lesson

When you're throwing your weight around, be ready to have it thrown around by somebody else

Always take a good look at what you're about to eat. It's not so important to know what it is, but it's good to know what it was

Go after life as if it's something that's got to be roped in a hurry before it gets away

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back in your pocket

Never get up before breakfast. If you have to get up before breakfast, eat breakfast first

Making it in life is kind of like busting broncos. You're going to get thrown a lot. The simple secret is to keep getting back on

The problem with people is that intelligent people are full of doubt and stupid people are full of confidence

Every horse, at least once in it's life, deserves to be loved by a little girl

Just cause trouble comes visiting doesn't mean you have to offer it a place to sit down

You can't weigh the facts if you got the scales weighed down with your own opinions

If you want to liven up the conversation, just say the right thing, the wrong way

If you are riding a high horse, there ain't no way to get down off it gracefully

However one sided a man may be, he will have other sides if you look hard enough

There are three kinds of men: the ones that learn by reading; the few who learn by observation; the rest of them have to pee on the electric fence.

A week spent around the campfire will tell you more about a man than living next to him for 10 years

A horse ain't being polite when he comes to a fence and lets you go over first

When your head is in the bear's mouth it's not the time to be smacking him on the nose

Just because you are traveling a well marked trail doesn't mean whoever made it knew where they were going

Whether the glass is half-full or half empty depends on whether you are drinking or pouring

There are lots of reasons to love a horse, sometime it's no more than the sweet little way he stepped on some asshole's foot

Country folks will help a fella who is down on his luck, but they got no patience for freeloaders

A gentlemen will not shoot a roosting bird and will only fish with a pole and not a net

Do not follow a path, go where there is no path and leave a trail

The difference between young liars and old thieves is just a matter of time

Some folks have 20 years of experience; others have one year of experience 20 times

You can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking used to create them

In your walks of life you will come upon piles of horse droppings, you can walk around them or jump in the middle of them; the choice is yours

It is not the size of the dog in the fight, it is the size of the fight in the dog

Great minds talk about ideas, average minds talk about events, small minds talk about people

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated

If the turtles on a log are dry, they have been there half an hour or more, which means no one has been near to alarm them

I would love to hear them.
