Yogi said these:
You can observe a lot by just watching.
There are some people who, if they don't already know, you can't tell 'em.
Local sayings:
If it was easy, anybody could do it.
If you don't fish, you won't catch any fish.

My Dad used to tell me: Just keep a smile on your face and your big mouth shut. That was the best advice I ever had.

You can’t embarrass me, I’m too ignorant.

It's not the destination, it's the journey. As a Harley rider, you spend a lot more time on the journey than you do at your destination.

Would you like it done right, or right away?

Here's a few more, "for old time's sake"

People with shaky hands shouldn’t enter dental school.

Contracts giveth with the large print and taketh away with the fine print.

This soil will grow anything from sugar beets to door knobs.

Well the eggs are broke now.

I always was a sucker for a pretty face.

He hasn’t combed his hair since he was 15.

Ignorant as a tree stump.

Quiet as wood smoke.

50 cent words.

A pisces working for scale.

Harder to follow than a white bee in a snow storm.

Don’t jump in before you know how deep it is.

Damper than a frog’s drawers.

Opportunity doesn’t make house calls.

There are some people who not only keep you from being lonely, but make you wish you were.

He can smell food before it’s even cooking.

Homlier than a mud fence.

Plain as plowed ground.

Can’t tell dung from wild honey.

He has more tricks than a dog has fleas.

Blunt as the face of an anvil.

A bat out of Carlsbad.

Notice in a workshop that serviced my aeroplanes. Because of the hourly rate it is obvious it wasnít recent.

Workshop rates.
30 dollars an hour.
60 dollars an hour if you have started.
120 dollars an hour if you help.
