Legendary Yankees catcher Yogi Berra, who died Tuesday after years of failing health, was known as much for his unique philosophical — and widely quoted — musings as he was for his status as a three-time MVP.

Below are some of the most noteworthy, and widely quoted Yogi-isms:

"I never said most of the things I said."

"It's deja vu all over again."

"You wouldn't have won if we'd beaten you."

"It ain't over till it's over."

"Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good too."

"Pair up in threes."

"I knew the record would stand until it was broken."

"Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical."

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

"It gets late early out there."

"Little League baseball is very good because it keeps the parents off the streets."

"Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded."

"You can observe a lot just by watching."

"A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."

"If you don't know where's you're going, you might wind up someplace else."

"We made too many wrong mistakes."
