“The future ain’t what it used to be.”

American baseball player, manager, and coach Yogi Berra

I’ve quoted the late, great Yogi Berra before, but given what is going on the world these days, I think Yogi was quite prescient with this quote. With climate change proceeding along virtually unabated, I’m not even sure that humanity will be around in the future.

One-Liner Wednesday — Another Yogi

5F884453-7C9B-4081-A1EC-4ED23A09D9EEIn my One-Liner Wednesday response last week, I quoted baseball legend Yogi Berra. I thought, given that Yogi is full of these one-liner gems, I’d hit him up again for this week’s One-Liner Wednesday prompt from Linda G. Hill.

“You should always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise, they won’t come to yours.”

Yogi was full of these tidbits of wisdom, wasn’t he?

One-Liner Wednesday — Someplace Else

“If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.”

American baseball player, manager, and coach Yogi Berra

This classic quote from that great American philosopher, Yogi Berra, resonates with me because, for the longest time, as I was transitioning from childhood to young adulthood, I had no clear idea what I wanted to do with my life. Even in college, I didn’t know where I was heading.

And so, as I reflect back on my life, I did end up “someplace else” — someplace I never anticipated I would end up. That said, I’ve lived a relatively happy and productive life, so I suppose ending up “someplace else” ain’t that bad.
