Yogi Berra turned 90 on May 12

. "80 percent of the balls that don't reach the hole, don't go in."

The future ain't what it used to be.

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

You should always go to other people's funerals. Otherwise they won't come to yours.

We're lost, but we're making great time!

A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore.

Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.

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

You better cut the pizza in four pieces. I'm not hungry enough to eat eight.

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

You can observe a lot just by watching.

No, you didn't wake me up. I had to get up to answer the phone anyway.

Why buy good luggage? You only use it when you travel.

I'd find the fellow who lost it, and, if he was poor, I'd return it. (When asked what he would do if he found a million dollars.)

Once, Yogi's wife Carmen asked, "Yogi, you are from St. Louis, we live in New Jersey, and you played ball in New York. If you go before I do, where would you like me to have you buried?" To this, Yogi replied, "Surprise me."


I knew I was going to take the wrong train, so I left early.

If you don't set goals, you can't regret not reaching them.

Anyone who is popular is bound to be disliked.

If you don't know where you're going, chances are you will end up somewhere else.

(When bumped by a man carrying a grandfather clock) Why can't you wear a watch like everybody else?

I really didn't say everything I said.

If you ask me a question I don't know, I'm not going to answer.

It ain't the heat; it's the humility.

The only reason I need these gloves is 'cause of my hands.

You can't think and hit at the same time.

If the world were perfect, it wouldn't be.

If I didn't wake up, I'd still be sleeping.

The other teams could make trouble for us if they win.

If you can't imitate him, don't copy him.

Never answer an anonymous letter.

90% of the game is half mental.

It's never happened in the World Series history - and it hasn't happened since.

I'm as red as a sheet.

It's not too far, it just seems like it is.



Slump? I ain't in no slump. I just ain't hitting.

We were overwhelming underdogs.

You mean now? (When asked for the time.)

We have a good time together, even when we're not together.

Little League baseball is a good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets and the kids out of the house.

Pair up in threes.

Don't get me right, I'm just asking.

I wish I had an answer to that, because I'm tired of answering that question.

The last one is not attributed to Yogi, but maybe is a good one for us all:

"Never Look Down on Anybody... Unless You’re Helping Them Up..."
