If you know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else. (Yogi Berra, late baseball star)
This is one of many Yogi malapropisms that clearly reflects the famous Murphy’s Law: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” In spite of our best intentions, we sometimes think we know where we’re headed, but if we don’t follow the directions carefully, we will find ourselves where we didn’t intend to be. Get good directions—and follow them!
Now, my son, may the Lord be with you and give you success as you follow his directions… (1 Chronicles 22:11)
