    I dwell... in a place that is perpetually inhabited by beings of my kind, Rockistas, we call us... and so we continue to live in that place, in a world that is eternally moving, swept by the torrents of musical wind.

    When it comes to the candid misuse of good English, Yogi Berra is the king; to wit:
    It ain't over till it's over
    It's deja vu all over again
    If you come to a fork in the road, take it

    as a base ball fan yogi berra is my god.



    It ain't over till it's over.

    This is like deja vu all over again.

    You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I'm not hungry enough to eat six.

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

    The future ain't what it used to be.

    A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore.

    It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future.

    I knew I was going to take the wrong train, so I left early.

    Baseball is ninety percent mental. The other half is physical.

    Nobody goes there anymore because it's too crowded.

    I don't know (if they were men or women fans running naked across the field). They had bags over their heads.

    You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you are going because you might not get there.

    I don't want to make the wrong mistake.

    If people don't want to come out to the ballpark, how are you going to stop them?

    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.

    Interviewer - "Why, you're a fatalist !" - Yogi Berra - "You mean I save postage stamps? Not me."

    Little League baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets.

    Mrs. Lindsay - "You certainly look cool." - Yogi Berra - "Thanks, you don't look so hot yourself."

    I'm not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did.

    "That ain't the way to spell my name."--After he got a check that read 'Pay to bearer'.

    How can you hit and think at the same time?

    You can observe a lot just by watchin'

    Always go to other people's funerals; otherwise, they won't go to yours.

    Never answer an anonymous letter.

    We made too many wrong mistakes.

    When asked what time it is: "Do you mean now?"

    For a spring training drill, Yogi instructed his players to: "Pair off in threes."

    Reporter: "What would you do if you found a million dollars?" Yogi: "If the guy was poor, I'd give it back."

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

    You can observe a lot just by watching.

    You give 100% in the first half of the game, and if that isn't enough, in the second half you give what's left.

    I never said most of the things I said.
    I'm always home, I'm uncool.

    Courtesy of Mr Edmund Blackadder, ESQ:

    "Disease and depravation stalk our land like... two giant... stalking things."

    I love how a series that is known for its wit ocassionally turns things upside-down like this. It gets me every time.
    "I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity- through him all things fall. Not by wrath, but by laughter, do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity!" - Nietzsche

    another Yogi-ism: Half the lies they tell about me aren't true

    Twain: I wouldn't belong to any organization that would have me as a member

    from Ulysses

    And as no man knows the ubicity of his tumults nor to what processes we shall thereby be ushered nor whether to Tophet or Edenville in the like way is all hidden when we would backward see from what region of remoteness the whatness of our whosness hath fetched his whenceness.

    There are so many quotes and poems by Ogden Nash that would fit here!

    • Progress might have been all right once, but it has gone on too long.
    • A door is what a dog is perpetually on the wrong side of.
    • I think remorse ought to stop biting the consciences that feed it.
    • People who work sitting down get paid more than people who work standing up.



    Smoot Smites Smut
    Senator Smoot (Republican, Ut.)
    Is planning a ban on smut.
    Oh rooti-ti-toot for Smoot of Ut.
    And his reverend occiput.
    Smite, Smoot, smite for Ut.,
    Grit your molars and do your dut.,
    Gird up your loins,
    Smite hip and thigh,
    We'll all be Kansas
    By and by.

    When smut's to be smitten
    Smoot will smite
    For God, for country,
    And Fahrenheit.

    Senator Smoot is an institute
    Not to be bribed with pelf;
    He guards our homes from erotic tomes
    By reading them all himself.

    Smite, Smoot,
    Be rugged and rough,
    Smut if smitten
    Is front-page stuff.
    "How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live."
