I learned today that Yogi Berra has passed away.
I’m not going to pretend that I was a Yogifile or that I’ve always admired him. And just for the record, I hate the Yankees.
But the quotes attributed to him have for a long time made me laugh. I’ve quoted a few of them several times. One for sure on this blog at least once.
“When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”
This says to me to not diddle-daddle and waste time thinking about it, just make a decision and do it.
“No one goes there anymore, it’s too crowded.”
Choose your own path, not the popular one with the crowd right now.
“If you don’t know where you’re going, you might end up someplace else.”
Set your goals, don’t drift through life; it doesn’t lead to where you want to go.
“The future ain’t what it used to be.”
No. I think it’s a whole lot better.
Thanks Yogi. We’ll miss your wit.
