Top Ten Yogi Berra Quotes

(Image Above

No, we haven’t made a typo; we’re not talking about a bear who steals picnic baskets. Although Yogi Berra rose to fame as a baseball player for the Yankees, he also had a way with words that few can top. You may have heard some of his sayings, such as  “It ain’t over till it’s over,” and “It’s like deja-vu all over again,” but there are plenty more bits of his off-kilter wisdom waiting to enlighten you. These profound witticisms, also known as “Yogiisms,” are so well-put in and of themselves, that we can’t even comment on them. So, for this week’s Top Ten Yogi Berra Quotes, we’ll let some one else do the talking. What are some of your favorite quotes or adages?

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

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

8. “Nobody goes there anymore; it’s too crowded.”

7. “The only color I don’t have is navy brown.

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

5. “Never answer an anonymous letter.

4. “You can observe a lot just by watching.

3. “The future ain’t what it used to be.

2. “We made too many wrong mistakes.

1. “I never said most of the things I said.

    Yogi Berra cannot die. I will be in deep mourning when he does.
