25 funny lessons of simple country wisdom quotes or sayings...life lessons learned the hard way.
Have you ever heard the expression "Simple Country Wisdom?"  It is one of those statements that country folk use sometimes to state a reason why something works or doesn't work usually because of an experience that happened as a result of the lack of wisdom.  It also has a deeper life lesson to it than the simple truth seen at first. I began thinking about some of the "Simple Country Wisdom that I have learned and decided I would share some of  those hard won lessons with you...maybe you can avoid the experience part. LOL.
