The Wit and Wisdom of Will Rogers

Here are some of his one-liners that are among my personal favorites. They are as true today as they were when he quipped them.

  1. “The trouble with practical jokes is that very often they get elected.”

  2. “There is nothing so stupid as the educated man if you get him off the thing he was educated in.”

  3. “A fool and his money are soon elected.”

  4. “I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.”

  5. “Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for.”

  6. “Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

Perhaps my favorite Rogers quotation is this one: “We’re all ignorant–just on different subjects.”

Think about it!
