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

When the going gets tough, sit down and grab a beer.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but never fuck with a guy with a Smith & Wesson .357

Someone posted this on a joke thread, I think it fits here:

Pornography is often frowned upon, but it's only because I'm concentrating.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I can't recollect who said it or the exact quote, but it was (I believe) a boxing coach who said something like....

"I make my fighters wake up and start training at 5 o'clock in the morning, no matter what time it is."

As for Yogi Berra, oh boy, half the things he ever said belongs here. And so it shall be.

"A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."
"Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical."
"In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is."
"Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours."
"Half the lies they tell about me aren't true."
"You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I'm not hungry enough to eat six."
"I never said most of the things I said."
"You can observe a lot by just watching."
"If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else."
"I wish I had an answer to that because I'm tired of answering that question."
"He hits from both sides of the plate. He's amphibious."
"I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four."
"You wouldn't have won if we'd beaten you."
"The towels were so thick there I could hardly close my suitcase."
"Congratulations. I knew the record would stand until it was broken."
"It was impossible to get a conversation going, everybody was talking too much."
"Slump? I ain't in no slump... I just ain't hitting."
"Pair up in threes."

And about his quotes, he said

"A lot of guys go, 'Hey, Yog, say a Yogi-ism.' I tell 'em, 'I don't know any.' They want me to make one up. I don't make 'em up. I don't even know when I say it. They're the truth. And it is the truth. I don't know."

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

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger! Then it hit me!
