Today I learned a couple things: number one, we lost a beautiful American icon, Lawrence “Yogi” Berra, and two, he was nicknamed Yogi because a buddy said he resembled a Hindu yogi. Yogi was a multi-faceted individual and wore many hats (and they all fit) in his long life, and my guess is he will be remembered the best and the longest for the treasure chest of “Yogi-isms” with which he gifted us. Here are a few:

“If you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.”

“In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.”

“A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.”

“You can observe a lot just by watching.”

“It ain’t the heat it’s the humility.”

“It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”

“When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

“It ain’t over til it’s over.”

“It’s like deja-vu all over again.”

‘No, I don’t go to that restaurant anymore, nobody goes. it’s too crowded.”

“Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good, too.”
