Happy Friday! This week has brought an end to summer and the first days of fall. This week also brought an end to the life of a unique legend, Yogi Berra. Here are a few of my favorite yogi-isms.
It ain’t over till it’s over.
Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours.
It’s like déjà vu all over again.
You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.
A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.
When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
You can observe a lot by just watching.
No one goes there nowadays, it’s too crowded.
The future ain’t what it used to be.
It gets late early out here.
If the people don’t want to come out to the ballpark, nobody’s going to stop them.
Why buy good luggage, you only use it when you travel.
He hits from both sides of the plate. He’s amphibious.
It was impossible to get a conversation going, everybody was talking too much.
I never said most of the things I said.
Thought for the Week
Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good, too. ~ Yogi Berra
I heard this morning on the radio that his famous “fork” statement was actually correct. It seems that he was telling someone how to reach his house, and part of the trip involved driving on a road that had a fork, and either fork would take the person to Yogi’s house.
Years ago, I read that few of Yogi’s famous statements were spontaneous. Instead, he worked hard on creating them and then using them at the right time. Might be true, but I prefer not to believe it because the truth isn’t always what it seems to be.
