The wisdom of Yogi Berra can best be understood by thinking about some of the quotes he is famous for. Yogi’s quotes are legendary and other than Shakespeare I’m not sure anyone has had a larger impact on the spoken word than Yogi. He played for 18 seasons as a catcher with the New York Yankees and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1972. Yogi played in 14 World Series and won 10 of them. His quotes like “it ain’t over till it’s over” and “Baseball is ninety percent mental, and the other half is physical” are classic.
