    TRUE STORY (1970(

    I was on a motorcycle trip years ago and stopped in a tiny town in the West Virginia mountains for gas.

    As I was filling up and adjusting my camping equipment, I saw an old man and his young grandson sitting on a bench in front of a small General store( before Dollar General) and he was telling the kid something and the kid wasn't really paying attention.

    The kid looked up and said , "PawPaw, what was that you were sayin, agin?"

    The old man looked sideways and pursed his lips and shot a steam of tobacco juice in the gravel.
    After some moments , wondering if the old man heard him, the old codger drawled:

    "SON, I don't chew my tobacco twice!!

    Well worth me stopping there as I never forgot the bewildered look on the kids face: I gave a swift kick on the 1969 Triumph Tiger, and headed down the road, smiling!

    I grow up with quotes and proverbs.
    In my family, we all love them.
    I've learned they're a quick resumen of human knowledge.
    Very powerful.

    Two of my favs are not by famous people, but my parents.
    “Why is the father of the How”
    “Constance and Patience are the provident daughters of mother Intelligence and father Commitment.”
    * In Italian is the same word, Costance for perseverance and Patience for endurance.
