Long live Yogi Berra

The legendary baseball player Yogi Berra just passed away. If you didn't tell me he was dead, I wouldn't have known he was still alive. That ones mine and it's true. It's the type of thing Yogi Berra became famous for saying. Here are some more 'Yogi-isms' lifted from the BBC article on his passing:

It's like deja-vu all over again
It ain't the heat; it's the humility
Baseball is 90% mental - the other half is physical
I never said most of the things I said... Take it with a grin of salt
If you don't know where you're going, you might end up some place else
He hits from both sides of the plate. He's amphibious
You can observe a lot by watching
The future ain't what it used to be
Never answer an anonymous letter
When you come to a fork in the road, take it
I always thought that record would stand until it was broken
If the world was perfect, it wouldn't be
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't go to yours
