Y is for the Wisdom of YOGI

So I bet you thought that my post today would be all about Yoga. Ha! Fooled ya! Sure, in yoga, there is much great wisdom and philosophy handed down from the ancient Yogis.  But when it comes right down it, you can't beat the wisdom of one of our greatest modern-day philosophers: Yogi Berra.

The brilliance of Yogi Berra lies in the fact that, while the things he says come out just a bit wrong, they are also somehow just right. I don't know about you, but to me, that seems a lot like real life!

Here are some words to ponder from The Great One:

"You can observe a lot by watching.
If the world were perfect, it wouldn’t be.
If you come to a fork in the road, take it.
It ain't over till it's over.
It's like déjà vu all over again.
The future ain’t what it used to be.
I never said most of the things I said."

Namaste, everybody! Just one more A to Z post to go!
