I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

Yogi Berraisms

The great baseball legend, Yogi Berra died yesterday at the ripe old age of 90. Not only was he fun to watch on the field, but he was entertaining off the field. In his memory, I offer several of his memorable quotes.

-"I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four."

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

-"You can observe a lot by watching."

-"The future ain't what it used to be."
-"If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else."

-"Why buy good luggage, you only use it when you travel."

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

-"When you come to a fork in the road, take it."

-"Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded."

-"It gets late early out here."

-"I think Little League is wonderful. It keeps the kids out of the house."

-"I don't know (if they were men or women fans running naked across the field). They had bags over their heads."

-"A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."

-"We made too many wrong mistakes."

-"So I'm ugly. I never saw anyone hit with his face."

-"If the people don't want to come out to the ballpark, nobody's going to stop them."

-"Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical."

-"All pitchers are liars or crybabies."

-"We were overwhelming underdogs."

-"He hits from both sides of the plate. He"s amphibious."

-"I always thought that record would stand until it was broken."

-"I want to thank everyone for making this night necessary."

-"I didn't really say everything I said."

-"You should always go to other people's funerals, otherwise, they won’t come to yours."

Rest in peace, Yogi. Thanks for the thrills and the laughs.
