I'm from the South and once a Southerner always a Southerner, is true. These saying prove it.
They came from Brenda, another Southerner.

A bumble bee is faster than a John Deere tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered.....not yelled.

Meaness don't jest happen overnight.

Every path has a few puddles.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.

Don't judge folks by their relatives.

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

Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you none.

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

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

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

Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.

If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites.

Onced and twiced are words.

Fixinto is one word.

Backwards and forwards means, "I know everything about you!"

You measure distance in minutes.

100 degrees Fahrenheit's a little warm.

We have four seasons: Almost summer, summer, still summer, and Christmas.

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Thank you Brenda, I loved them!
