Hmm. I already had :) but googling just now found this page:
which attributes variations on the above sentiment to just about
everyone you've ever heard of.
The phrasing above is certainly attributed to Yogi Berra pretty often.
Bohr is more likely to have the wildly different phrase:
"Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future."
attributed to him :)
It's a fairly obvious thought, after all.
"Sturgeon's Law (90% of everything is crap) applies to Usenet."
"Nothing guarantees that the 10% isn't crap, too."
-- Gene Spafford's Axiom #2 of Usenet, and a corollary
