“Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.”
“Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.”
“A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.”
“Words that soak into your ears are whispered…....not yelled.”
“Meanness don't just happen overnight.”
“Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.”
“Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.”
“It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.”
“You cannot unsay a cruel word.”
“Every path has a few puddles.”
“When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.”

“Most of the stuff people worry about, ain't never gonna happen anyway.”
“Don't judge folks by their relatives..
“Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.”
“Live a good and honorable life, then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.”
“Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none.”
“Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.”

FontsLive brings beautiful text to your site, no matter the browser.

The problem has been around since the dawn of fonts on computers.  I can put all the pretty looking text that I want on my website, but if you don’t have the font installed on your own computer, then all you see is a generic replacement.  In order to fix this problem, website designers have previously used pictures of text, in the font that they want displayed. the Link below has more about this new FontsLive, and the costs too.
