Remembering Yogi

The great Yogi Berra passed away yesterday at the age of 90 of natural causes. Yogi was not only a professional baseball player in his time (and a manager and coach), he was also a great leader. In addition, he was also from my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri! 

To honor his life and the contribution he made, I want to include some of his more interesting quotes for your enjoyment (and to ponder upon). Here they are:
  • You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I'm not hungry enough to eat six.
  • Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good, too.
  • When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
  • Slump? I ain't in no slump... I just ain't hitting.
  • The future ain't what it used to be.
  • It was impossible to get a conversation going, everybody was talking too much.
  • I'm not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did.
  • The towels were so thick there I could hardly close my suitcase.
  • I never said half the things I said.
  • It's like deja-vu, all over again.
  • Half the lies they tell about me aren't true.
  • Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
With Intent!
