Ken Harrelson Quotes and Sayings
Quotes by Ken Harrelson

I hope you like these Ken Harrelson quotes from my collection of quotes about life.

In baseball you hit your home run over the right-field fence,
the left-field fence, the center-field fence.
Nobody cares.
In golf everything has got to be right over second base.
- Ken Harrelson

In a blind town, the one-eyed man is king.

A life is not important except in
the impact it has on other lives.
- Jackie Robinson (baseball player)

During his training, a baseball player strives
to make each swing better than the last.
The repetition of a faulty swing would be worse than useless.
It would ingrain bad habits.
The same is true of emotional responses.
If we allow ourselves to continue to have the same angry responses,
we just entrench our anger habit.
But if we strive - through consciousness, visualization, and coaching -
to moderate our anger response,
over time, we can train ourselves to respond
to events as we choose - without anger.
You can't magically be free from anger tomorrow,
but you can put yourself on your own training program
that will reduce the frequency and intensity
of your anger response day by day, year by year.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
