I collect aphorisms and quotes and like to record them in my paper journal. Here are some that I’ve recently come across.

Farmer’s Advice (selections from an e-mail forwarded to me):

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight, and bull-strong.

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

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

Every path has a few puddles.

“It is a tremendous act of violence to begin anything. I am not able to begin. I simply skip what should be the beginning.” --Rainer Maria Rilke

“If there were no poetry on any day in the world, poetry would be invented that day. For there would be an intolerable hunger.” --Muriel Rukeyser
