Country Sayings

If there is anything that the South is known for, it’s good sayings.  Some are words of wisdom, some are just for fun, some are both.

Please feel free to share any that you have in a comment.  If they were said by a family member, please include their name.

I’ll start off with a couple from my grandmother, Esta Mae (Wallen) Roberts.  She was a strong woman of God and Dad shared many of her wise quotes with me.
