Abstract:

I ain't gonna to lie to you. Usually when somebody tells you that, it means they are about to lie like a dog. Well, here's the truth: Joe Carter knows more about the late great Will Rogers than anybody else in the known world and parts of Oklahoma. Larry Gatlin of the Gatlin Brothers, star of the touring production of The Will Rogers Follies: A Life in Revue. Will Rogers captured the hearts of Americans with his thoughtful political humor; his dedication to country, family and friends; and his amazing ability to speak truth to life's fundamentals. In this delightful new biography, author Joseph Carter covers the details of Rogers's family history, the many milestones in his professional life, and America's fascination with this incredible figure. Rogers's famous quotes and quips are woven throughout the book, making it a thoroughly enjoyable read from start to finish. Learn the fascinating history of Will Rogers, and have his most memorable quotes collected in one place: A man learns by two things. One is reading. The other is associating with smarter people. We don't have to worry about anything. No nation in the history of the world was ever sitting as pretty. If we want anything, all we have to do is go and buy it on credit. We will never have true civilization until we have learned to recognize the rights of others. Remember, write to your Congressman. Even if he can't read, write to him. It takes nerve to be a Democrat, but it takes money to be a Republican. Best doctor in the world is the Veterinarian. He can't ask his patients what's the matter. He's just got to know. Parades should be classed as a nuisance and participants should be subject to a term in prison. Even the people in them hate them. Ain't it funny how many hundreds of thousands of soldiers we can recruit with nerve? But we can't find one politician in a million with backbone.
