Why is it called “Fork in the Road”?

I’ve always enjoyed the wisdom of Yogi Berra and his oft-quoted statement “When you come to a fork in the road...take it” is one of my favorites. Somehow, it seems to fit my view of life. And so does "It ain’t over 'til it’s over", but that didn’t seem like a good name for a company.
