Easter Funnies – The Wisdom Of Yogi Berra!

I saw Ken Burns speak the other day and he read several quotes from Yogi Berra that made me laugh pretty good. I thought I’d share on this lovely afternoon. I hope you are taking it easy today, chilling and enjoying whatever you like to enjoy. Peace,

Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours.

Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.

Half the lies they tell about me aren’t true.

I’m not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did.

If people don’t want to come out to the ball park, nobody’s gonna stop ’em.

If you come to a fork in the road, take it.

It gets late early out there.

It was impossible to get a conversation going, everybody was talking too much.

The future ain’t what it used to be.

The towels were so thick there I could hardly close my suitcase.

We made too many wrong mistakes.

You can observe a lot by just watching.

You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.

I never said most of the things I said.
