The Briar Patch Philosopher is a collection of wise sayings that are simple to remember. One of my favorites that I learned from my dad was, “Even the good will of a bad dog is worth something.” We all face bad dogs in our work places, in our families and with our friends. By getting the good will of bad dogs on your side, you make the dog’s biting you very difficult.
In the briar patch of life, you'll encounter thorns, hurts, disappointments, various trials, danger, and missteps all along the way. Also, in the briar patch of life, you’ll find the true virtues that are necessary - courage, endurance, patience, faith and wisdom. If you're willing to run through the briar patch and the fires of everyday living, and you rely heavily on courage, endurance, patience, faith and wisdom, you can have a happy, successful, prosperous and meaningful life.
Like anyone else, I don’t always do the right thing. However, these sayings help me to recognize my mistakes and often prevent me from making the same mistake again. I’m not the briar patch philosopher. I'm just the rabbit who’s gone into the briar patch and tried to learn from all who have ventured into the briar patch and come out on the other side. Hopefully like me, you'll learn some wisdom to live by, gain some strength to endure, and find the courage to put a smile on your face from The Briar Patch Philosopher.
