The only measure that separates genius from insanity is success or failure.

An elephant is a mouse built to goverment specifications

A camel is a horse designed by a committee.

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

If all the lawyers in the country were laid end-to-end, it would be a good thing.

“The next best thing to being clever is being able to quote someone who is.”   Mary Poole (writer)

"Can't you hurry this up a bit? I hear they eat dinner in Hades at twelve sharp and I don't aim to be late."  Black Jack Ketchum (long rider) , neck in noose, New Mexico, April 1901.

"I like to dance, but not in the air." - Billy the Kid (long rider)

"A jail is just like a nutshell with a worm in it, the worm will always get out."  John Dillinger (long rider)

 “It’s immoral to let a sucker keep his money.”   ‘Canada Bill’ Jones (cardsharp)

"Never expect a handout and never wait for anybody to hand you anything."  Jesse James (long rider)

"The more ignorant you are, the quicker you fight."  Will Rogers (entertainer)

"This thing of being a hero, about the main thing to it is to know when to die. Prolonged life has ruined more men than it ever made." Will Rogers.

"Shoot first and never miss." - Bat Masterson  (Law man)

And a long one from the Ace-High Belle Star (long rider) about being friends with those outside the law:

"You can just say that I am a friend to any brave and gallant outlaw, but have no use for that sneaking, coward class of thieves who can be found in every locality, and who would betray a friend or comrade for the sake of their own gain.  There are three or four jolly, good fellows on the dodge now in my section, and when they come to my home they are welcome, for they are my friends, would lay down their lives in my defense at any time the occasion demanded it, and go their full length to serve me in any way.”

and am always moved to wonderment,
that what chills the finger not one bit,
