Here are a few quotes, from others, about the man himself:
"...Will can't help being funny no matter where he happens to be. His humor isn't the artificial kind that you can put on and take off like a coat. He's just himself. He's always himself. He doesn't try to be funny. He just is."
~Betty, Will Rogers' wife.
"He was unique. Will Rogers had a way of slapping you, while he picked you up. That is a great art, and Rogers certainly was great."
~actor Lew Ayres.
Now, here are some of his poignant quotes:
"If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging."
"No man is great if he thinks he is."
"Try to live your life so that you wouldn't be afraid to sell the family parrot to the town gossip."
"The best doctor in the world is the veterinarian. He can't ask his patients what is the matter-he's got to just know."
"I wonder if it isn't just cowardice instead of generosity that makes us give tips."
"Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment."
"We are always yapping about the 'Good Old Days' and how we look back and enjoy it, but I tell you there is a lot of hooey to it. There is a whole lot of all our past lives that wasn't so hot."
"Don't let yesterday use up too much of today."
