More Wild West Quotes
People loved our first Wild West quotes post so much that I thought I'd put together another.
"Leave me alone and let me go to hell by my own route." – Calamity Jane
As a side note, we have a Calamity Jane product line, because she was a hell of an inspiring individual.
"There is only one road away from trouble, and this is along the strait and narrow road." – Otto Wood
"Perhaps I may yet die with my boots on." — Wild Bill Hickok
"No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle." - Winston Churchill (ok, technically not a western hero, but true none-the-less)
"My father had seen in a flash that they were all gunmen, so he told me to stand still, although we were right in a possible line of fire. If near a gun-fight and the weapons are wielded by amateurs, run for your life; if professionals are handling the trigger, stand still — they know where they are shooting." ― William S. Hart
"I see a good many enemies around, and mighty few friends." – Bill Longley
"Listen, your job is to back me up, because you’d starve without me." — Butch Cassidy
"I wish I could find words to express the trueness, the bravery, the hardihood, the sense of honor, the loyalty to their trust and to each other of the old trail hands." — Charles Goodnight
"I have acted fearless and independent and I never will regret my course. I would rather be politically buried that to be hypocritically immortalized." — Davy Crockett
"I think it was the distinguishing trait of Wyatt Earp, the leader of the Earp brothers, that more than any man I have ever known, he was devoid of physical fear. He feared the opinion of no one but himself and his self-respect was his creed." — W. B. "Bat" Masterson
"Well, if there ain’t going to be any rules, let’s get the fight started." — Butch Cassidy
"Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything." — Wyatt Earp
"There are many in this old world of ours who hold that things break about even for all of us. I have observed, for example, that we all get the same amount of ice. The rich get it in the summertime and the poor get it in the winter." –Bat Masterson
"I regard myself as a woman who has seen much of life." – Belle Starr
"At my age I suppose I should be knitting." — Poker Alice
Many of these quotes were compiled by the Legends of America site, who I would be remiss if I didn't cite.
