    Persistence......

    The ability to overcome obstacles along the way.

    Yogi Berra and Casey Stengel were famous baseball players. Who were also well known for their quotes. Some are still used by people today, who have no idea where they came from or who said them. There are thousands of them. Here are just a few. Enjoy!



    Yogi-isms

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


    "Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical."

    "You can observe a lot by watching."

    "In baseball, you don't know nothing."

    "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."

    "It's deja vu all over again."

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

    "I usually take a two-hour nap, from
    one o'clock to four."

    "If the people don't want to come out to
    the park, nobody's going to stop them."

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

    "Think! How the hell are you gonna
    think and hit at the same time?"

    "I didn't really say everything I said."

    On being told by the wife of New York Mayor John V. Lindsay that he looked cool despite the heat:

    "You don't look so hot, either."

    "How long have you known me, Jack? And
    you still don't know how to spell my name."
    Dale Berra, Pittsburgh Pirate shortstop and son of noted linguist Yogi Berra, on the comparisons being made between him and his father:

    "Our similarities are different."
    Asked if first baseman Don Mattingly had exceeded his expectations this season:

    "I'd say he's done more than that."
    On the acquisition of fleet Ricky Henderson:

    "He can run anytime he wants. I'm
    giving him the red light."
    On a fancy White House dinner he attended:

    "It was hard to have a conversation with anyone,
    there were so many people talking."
    Don Baylor, New York Yankees DH, on Billy Martin and his predecessor Yogi Berra:

    "Playing for Yogi is like playing for
    your father; playing for Billy is like playing
    for your father-in-law."
    Reminiscing during a tv interview about New York Yankee battery mate Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series:

    "It's never happened in the World Series
    competition, and it still hasn't."
    After Milwaukee Brewer manager Phil Garner told him that he had said a Yogi-ism:

    "What's a Yogi-ism?"
    After accepting an invitation to dine at the White House this week:

    "I thought they said steak dinner, but
    then I found it was a state dinner."


    The Wisdom of Casey Stengel

    "I broke in with four hits and the writers promptly
    declared they had seen the new Ty Cobb. It took me only a
    few days to correct that impression."


    "All right, everybody line up alphabetically according to your height."

    "I made up my mind, but I made it up both ways."

    "Being with a woman never hurt no professional baseball player.
    It's staying up all night looking for a woman that does him in."

    "Good pitching will always stop good hitting, and vice versa."

    "The secret of managing is to keep the guys who hate you away from
    the guys who are undecided."
    On hearing that a rival manager was trying to win the pennant with just three pitchers::

    "Well, well, well, I heard it couldn't be done,
    but it don't always work."
    On players who did not drink:

    "It only helps them if they can play."
    On winning the 1958 World Series:

    "I couldna done it without my players."
    On being asked how the Mets were doing:

    "Well, we've got this Johnny Lewis in the outfield.
    They hit a ball to him yesterday, and he turned left, then he
    turned right, then he went straight back and caught the ball.
    He made three good plays in one. And Greg Goossen, he's only twenty
    and with a good chance in ten years of being thirty."
    On being asked about his future in the spring of 1965:

    "How the hell should I know? Most of the people
    my age are dead. You could look it up."
    To his excuse-prone Mets:

    "You make your own luck. Some people have bad
    luck all their lives."

    Re: Quotes

    DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW


    Two shoe salesmen were sent to Africa to open up a new market. Three days later after their arrival, the first salesman sent a telegram "returning home on next plane. Can't sell shoes here. Everybody goes barefooted."



    Nothing was heard from the second salesman for about two weeks- and then there came a fat airmail envelope with this message for the home office "fifty orders enclosed. Prospects unlimited. Nobody here has shoes."
