Duke Says

Posted: Nov 12 2014

Duke Says is a collection of witticisms, observations on life, lessons learned from the failures of others and, yes, lessons learned the hard way. Once they cross my lips, however, I take credit for them all. They are as follows in no particular order.

Take care of all of the little things and the big things will take care of themselves.

Life is nothing more than an opportunity. It is here today and gone tomorrow. It is up
to you to make something out of it.

I've heard the lie being told that the Devil is a Texan out of Dallas. That is a
double-damned lie. I know for a fact that He is out of New York City.

There are four boxes that are the cornerstones of American Liberty. The Soap Box.
The Ballot Box. The Jury Box. And, The Cartridge Box.

Duke's Rules for Success: Do It, Do It Right the First Time, Do It Right Now.

Duke's Motto for Success: "Success comes to he who hustles, wisely"

If you insist on living your life as a Dumb*ss, Nature will conspire to find a way to kill
you because she doesn't want you to pass on your Dumb*ss genes.

Nature not only abhors a vacuum, she hates an idiot too.

If you have to learn everything the hard way, you are not only going to have a hard
life but a short one as well.

You have to be able to learn from the mistakes of others, the saddest epitaph of
all is "Nobody Told Me".

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs; you don't understand the situation.

A word to the wise should be sufficient, but there is always a pea-brain who isn't
listening, so let me repeat myself.

If you insist on having sex with a Tiger, be prepared to take the claws.

If you can't defend your argument, you can't defend yourself.

If you have to choose between being smart or being lucky, take lucky every time.

A soldier is made not by the orders he obeys but by the orders he disobeys, but if
you disobey an order than take the consequences like a man without excuses or
apologies.

He was so stupid, he went in the woods without a dog.

In the desert no man meets a friend.

The readers of the National Enquirer have enquiring minds. The readers of The Duke of
Texas have demanding minds. Now, don't you feel better about that.

All True Texans drink hard liquor, Ladies included. Beer is for horses.
