Will Rogers

So we've been to the movies this week as part of our vacation, and my attention was drawn, as it is every summer, to the Will Rogers Institute.



"A fool and his money are soon elected."

"Advertising is the art of convincing people to spend money they don't have for something they don't need."

"America is a nation that conceives many odd inventions for getting somewhere but it can think of nothing to do once it gets there."

"Buy land. They ain't making any more of the stuff."

"Chaotic action is preferable to orderly inaction."

"Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects."

"I never expected to see the day where girls would get sunburned in places they now do."

"People who fly into a rage always make a bad landing."

"Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated."

"What the country needs is dirtier fingernails and cleaner minds."

"Never let yesterday use up too much of today."
