Life Lessons From A Cow

Several years ago I received a great poster board from a close friend. It listed all the things you could learn from a cow. A few months ago, I received an email with even more lessons to be learned. Today, I thought I would share this wisdom.

All I need to know about life, I learned from a cow (from poster);
- If it's good, milk it for all it's worth.
- Successful people are "moo-vers and shakers".
- Don't be just one of the herd.
- The cream always rised to the top.
- Don't stoop to a barnyard mentality.
- Don't be bossy.
- It is better to have milked and churned, than to never have milked at all.
- If you need to get somewhere, hoof it.
- Some days can be udder frustration.
- If you're feeling low, moo yourself a little song.
- Chew your food 50 times before swallowing.
- Don't let others corrall you.
- Munch hay while the sun shines.
- He who lives with the herd, learns to watch his step.
- Following your heart will always steer you in the right direction.
- Party 'til the cows come home.
- Live for-heifer young.
- Here a moo, there a moo, everywhere a moo-moo.

Here's a little more sage cow advice:
- In court, always tell the hoof, the whole hoof, and nothing but the hoof.
- Inivatiations to barbecues are not always good things to accept.
- Steak your claim.
- No matter wht your colour, you are always welcome in the herd.
- Never lose your drive.
- Hey, we're cows. We always have a stomach for whatever happens.
- A good managerial cow knows when to farm out extra duties.
- As I cow, I've been on grass cine I was a calf. Never been stoned a day in my life.
- turn up the heat a little, I'm about to give ice cream.
- See you in the moo-vies.
- In the long run, it's easier to tell the truth than to sling the bull.
- One thing leads to an udder.
