Growing up just a few miles from Will Rogers’ hometown in Oklahoma, we were frequently regaled with his wit and wisdom. His legend loomed large over the local culture, and his name graced everything from streets to schools to buildings.

One of my favorite quotes from Will Rogers:

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

Will Rogers (b. 11/4/1879 – d. 8/15/1935)
