I was reading an article today about some interesting quotes made by Australian Rules Football Players which made me think about some of the interesting and wacky quotes made by New York Yankee Great Yogi Berra.
Born Lawrence Peter Berra on May 12, 1925 in St. Louis, Missouri, Berra is a former Major League Baseball player and manager who played almost his entire career for the New York Yankees. Elected to the baseball Hall of Fame in 1972, Berra is without question one of the most beloved baseball players to play the game since Babe Ruth.
Berra, who stopped going to school in the eighth grade, was famous for his malapropisms and fracturing the English language in highly provocative and interesting ways. Here’s just a sample of some of his more famous sayings:
It’s like deja vu, all over again.
You can observe a lot by just watching.
You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I’m not hungry enough to eat six.
It ain’t over till it’s over.
A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.
It ain’t the heat, it’s the humility.
Even Napoleon had his Watergate.
He hits from both sides of the plate. He’s amphibious.
You should always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise, they won’t come to yours.
You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.
The future ain’t what it used to be.
If you come to a fork in the road, take it.
