Here are some of his famous and oft-repeated Yogi-isms:

"It ain't over 'til it's over."

"Never answer an anonymous letter."

"I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four."

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

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

"You can observe a lot by watching."

"You mean now?" (In response to being asked what time it was).

"The future ain't what it used to be."

"It gets late early out there."

"Nobody goes there anymore; it's too crowded."

"So I'm ugly. So what? I never saw anyone hit with his face."

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

"We just agree differently." (On his clashes with Yankees owner George
Steinbrenner when Berra managed the team).

"Thanks. You don't look so hot yourself." (In response to New York Mayor
John Lindsay's wife complimenting him on appearing cool on a sweltering

"It's Too coincidental to be a coincidence."

I always liked his answer when room service asked if he wanted his pizza cut into 6 slices or 8. He replied "6! I could never eat 8."
