GW Philosophy

Philosophy of Doc’s dad, who the grand kids affectionately named him GW.

A mechanic and farmer, GW was very intelligent with a clear philosophical understanding of right and wrong. Old school boys had an understanding not muddled up by political correctness, loss of moral values, or urges for power, money, and fame.

GW’s quaint little sayings were simple, yet they deeply illustrated his understanding of life.

  1. Just because everybody jumps off a cliff dosen’t mean you have to.
  2. Good for what ails ya.
  3. If it was a snake, it would have bit you.
  4. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out
  5. Use your head for something besides a hat rack.
  6. You can go swimming, but don’t get wet.
  7. Fine as frog’s hair.
  8. Better than a Poke in the Eye with a Sharp Stick.
  9. Keep your mouth shut. You will learn more.
  10. Wear a hat or your brains will cook.
  11. If wishes were fishes…
  12. GW also loved poetry.
  13. Go outside if you are cold.
  14. I guess he didn’t have a dog in the race.
  15. Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.
