Baseball player Yogi Berra — whose birth name was Lawrence Peter Berra — died in September
It is appropriate to note the death of someone who is well known for sayings that have provoked the public to thoughts of puzzlement and paradox — and in such an amusing way.
A few quotes:
“I never said most of the things I said.”
“In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.”
“There are some people who, if they don’t already know, you can’t tell ’em.”
“It was impossible to get a conversation going, everybody was talking too much.”
“The future ain’t what it used to be.”
“I wish I had an answer to that because I’m tired of answering that question.”
“If the world were perfect, it wouldn’t be.”
We understand he had some achievements in baseball, too. The New York Times has an obituary.
