    “There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human- in not having to be just happy or just sad- in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time.”

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

    Some more from him:

    No one goes there nowadays, it’s too crowded.

    Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical.

    A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.

    Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours.

    We made too many wrong mistakes.

    You wouldn’t have won if we’d beaten you.

    The future ain’t what it used to be.

    Pair up in threes.

    He hits from both sides of the plate. He’s amphibious.

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

    It ain’t the heat, it’s the humility.




    Take it with a grin of salt.

    “I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.”
    ― J.G. Ballard

    “The adults forgot to tell the kids there isn't much to do,
    That all this free time is quite hard to get through.
    You can read a nice novel and paint something new,
    But those activities are actually pretty isolating too.
    That's why we glance over at red lights, curious if others feel it too.”
    ― Karl Kristian Flores, Can I Tell You Something?

    “I don't care what the newspapers say about me as long as they spell my name right.”
    P. T. Barnum

    The quote is an approximation.

    "P. T. Barnum was once interviewed by a woman who told him that she was writing a book, and that it would contain something disagreeable about him. “No matter, madam,” was his reply, “say anything you like about me, but spell my name right — P. T. B-a-r-n-u-m, P. T. Barnum — and I’ll be pleased anyway.” The blackmailer retired in confusion."

    “The healing that comes with self-acceptance rippled through my life. As I embraced my carefree nature, I began living from my truth, and watched as the pure expression of who I am and the love I bring to the world illuminated my life.”

    “I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery — air, mountains, trees, people. I thought “this is what it is to be happy.” - Sylvia Plath
