Yogi Berra Yogisms

yogiYogi Berra Yogisms.  My father-in-law is a baseball freak…you know, the kind of freak that knows who played third base for the Yankees in 1967.  Me, I can’t even remember Fannie Mae waiting period for a high-balance foreclosure (that’s why I write stuff down).  Yogi was one of his favorites, and for good reason.  Yogi had unconventional wisdom – something I admire greatly.  Here are some of my favorite quotes:
  • Perhaps his most famous:  It ain’t over ’til it’s over.
  • The future ain’t what it used to be.
  • I wish I had an answer to that, because I’m tired of answering that question.
  • Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical.
  • You can observe a lot by watching.
  • If the world were perfect, it wouldn’t be.
  • About a St. Louis restaurant: No one goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.
  • If people don’t want to come to the ballpark, how are you going to stop them?
  • We made too many wrong mistakes.
  • You tell the stupidest questions.
  • Never answer an anonymous letter.
  • In baseball, you don’t know nothing.
  • On his hitting approach: I can’t think and hit at the same time.
  • So I’m ugly. I never saw anyone hit with his face.
  • When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
  • Always go to other people’s funerals. Otherwise, they won’t come to yours.
  • And finally, on economics: A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.

Thanks for your wisdom Yogi!
