I love folk wisdom.  I find it to be true, simple, and worth as much or more than all the formal education from which I have benefited through the years.  If you are like me, there are a few life lessons that come to mind from time to time as experiences reinforce the simple sayings passed on by others.

One such lesson is a statement I first heard from a down-to-earth, kind, wise gentleman a number of years older than me.  I don’t remember the situation many years ago which provoked the statement, but I will never forget the remark: “If you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, the one that yelps is the one that got hit.”

In this shortest lesson of the year, leap year lesson #275 is There is much truth in folk wisdom.

What are some of the folksy life lessons you’ve heard that ring true from your experience?
