Teddy Thompson
If you listen to Too Short over the years, that’s me – I’m not hitting every key or every drum or singing every track – but that’s me telling everybody what to do. I like to work with creative people. But when it all comes back, and we’re mixing down Too Short songs, I’m right there.
Too Short
If I could be like Happy Gilmore or Kyle Berkshire, hitting over 400 yards and hitting it straight? That is a massive, massive advantage. So I set out to do that, and I’ve been healthier and stronger ever since.

I want to be known for my hitting at least a little bit.
Jordan Larson
Babies are born bow-legged in South Dakota. By the age of 12, they can purchase guns. At 14, they can take their driving test. Fortunately, since the geographical area of South Dakota can accommodate both France and Germany, but has a population of only 750,000, the chances of hitting anything are pretty slim.

Richa Chadha
Everyone always says don’t take your defense into hitting and don’t take your hitting into defense. If you feel comfortable at one of the other, I think the other is going to feed off the other.
Anthony Rendon
If you want to be famous because you do something well or badly, be it singing while fat or hitting balls of various shapes and hues, you have to be prepared to divulge. We live in the age of the chronic overshare.
Alexandra Petri

Justin Thomas
My first year of pro ball I played in the Northwest league and made the all-star team, and the next year I played I led the team in hitting and was third or fifth in the league.
Kurt Russell
I don’t like getting older, but there’s nothing I can do. Hitting 60 wasn’t great, but I think I was lucky in not being that beautiful; it can be really cruel on people who have been stunning.
Jane Birkin
There is no question that in the ’50s and ’60s, black players got thrown at more. That’s not a negative comment. It may come out that way, but that’s the way it was. Hitting another player was part of the game; hitting a player in the head is not.
Reggie Jackson
If I hit the Klitschkos with the same shots I was hitting John Ruiz, both of them would go over.
David Haye
Since a month, two months ago, you know, I’ve started hitting the ball well. I’m playing some really good tennis. That really helps. I sort of have to motivate myself to get pumped up. It really helps my game a lot.

Malcolm Gladwell
It’s not just about checking the box on corporate social responsibility. It’s about hitting our bottom line.

The competition I played against was fantastic, but golf is a different game now. The courses have shrunk because the equipment has gotten better. They’re hitting the ball 10 to 15 percent farther because of the changes in the golf ball.
Hollis Stacy
As a kid in Fayetteville, N.C., I played golf all day, every day, a lot of it by myself. I spent hundreds of hours around the greens at Cape Fear Valley, the course my dad owned, hitting every shot I could think of – the one-hop-and-release, the chip that lands dead, the explosion from a bad lie.
Raymond Floyd
We’re not hitting on all cylinders, defensively. When we’re playing good, I’ll let you know.
Tony Dungy
You know, this game’s not very much fun when you’re only hitting .247.
Reggie Jackson
I’d be scared of hitting 60 and looking like a granny when the child’s just in their teens. I’m happy I had my daughter when I was in my 30s.
Laila Rouass
There has always been a saying in baseball that you can’t make a hitter, but I think you can improve a hitter. More than you can improve a fielder. More mistakes are made hitting than in any other part of the game.
Ted Williams
I vigorously deny hitting Ms. Sheridan.
Marc Cherry
I’ve been hitting up Hooters since 1983, and I can assure you nothin’ says football season is here quite like watching the game on wall-to-wall flat screen TVs with the smell of Hooters world-famous chicken wings in the air and an ice-cold beer in your hand, served up with one-and-only Hooters hospitality, of course.
Jon Gruden
Sometimes you get submerged by emotion. I think it’s very important to express it – which doesn’t necessarily mean hitting someone.
Eric Cantona
I think hitting’s just repetition. The more you hit, the better you’re gonna get.
Vernon Wells
The bouncer shouldn’t be banned. Hitting batsmen, I’m afraid, is part of the game. But it’s the histrionics, the nonsense, the prancing, the in-your-face nastiness. It’s become accepted, and actually it’s not acceptable at all.
Jonathan Agnew
You’re the only one in control over your golf ball. It’s not like tennis: you’re hitting a shot and somebody’s hitting it back at you.
Lee Westwood
I’m substantially concerned about the policy directions of the space agency. We have a situation in the U.S. where the White House and Congress are at odds over what the future direction should be. They’re sort of playing a game and NASA is the shuttlecock that they’re hitting back and forth.
Neil Armstrong
You usually feel a little bit better when you are hitting a few more homers. That’s just the way it goes.

Hitting is fifty percent above the shoulders.
Ted Williams
I’ve always loved hitting, and even as a kid, I always hit.
J. D. Martinez
I’ve done a pretty good job of hitting 18-34-year-old males, and not such a good job of reaching kids. Disney has done a great job of reaching kids, but maybe not the 18-34-year-olds. I figure I can learn a lot from Disney, and maybe, I don’t know, they can learn a lot from me.
Warren Spector
When you’re hitting a fairway wood, you’ve got a lot of real estate to cover to get to your target. Your first instinct is probably to give it a little more power because you’re worried about coming up short.
Ernie Els
Making love is like hitting a baseball. You just gotta relax and concentrate.
Susan Sarandon

People attach too much importance to intangibles like heart, desire and clutch hitting.
Nate Silver
Hitting is business. With two strikes you really protect that plate.
Bill Terry
The game itself, I think, plays into the strength of my game, which has always been tee to green, hitting the ball consistently in play and managing my game. Putting has always been the one thing that’s been a bit more erratic.
Tom Lehman
I’ve never set up any golf course that would favor anybody. I try to make it exactly the opposite, which is what we did at Valhalla when we modernized it to accommodate the lengths players are hitting it today.

Sometimes I get in writing moods and I want to write a song every couple of days. Then sometimes I may not write a song for three weeks. It’s just according to how it’s hitting me at the time.
Ashton Shepherd
I love hitting those big sixes.
Vijay Shankar
I am more valuable to my team hitting .330 then swinging for home runs.
Roberto Clemente
I didn’t play in indoor gyms until I was 12… Hitting the floor on concrete – it ain’t easy bouncing up from that. It makes you tougher.
Kyle Lowry
I started with golf because I saw my brothers play, I was always watching them. It was my life. Growing up, we always played competitions like chipping, hitting.
Lexi Thompson
They said if I could deal with the pain, I should play. So, I did, and for some reason, I started hitting. It was a weird thing. I don’t know if it was because I couldn’t do too much, and I was just trying to stay up through the middle and not hurt myself.
Freddie Freeman
You need someone to tell you how to do things like hitting your marks, or driving a car so it looks right or getting out of a car so it doesn’t take a million years of screen time.
Gary Cole
I firmly believe that every six years, a person goes through a serious change. Think about it: At 6, you start school. At about 12, you start hitting puberty. And then it goes on. You start hitting these different mental levels, and people change. I think that’s part of the reason the divorce rate is so high.
Randy Houser
I like to understand, very specifically, what it is I’m seeing, and where it is and where it’s going, and a lot of that is just hitting the mark and following the dotted line. But that’s good, too because there’s concentration and focus that’s involved in that.
Stephen Lang
I deliberately keep myself apart from a lot of stuff; I don’t Tweet, I don’t do Facebook, I don’t blog, and that’s largely because I spend my working life staring at a screen and hitting a keyboard, I am trying to cut down on that, not increase it.
Iain Banks
I went from being one of the best players, batting .550, to not being able to do it mentally, hitting .200. I thought I was mentally tough. But I couldn’t hit the ball.

Jake Arrieta
As soon as the dirt is hitting the casket, it’ll all be forgotten.
Eric Bogosian
There’s a lot of cruelty going on all the time, and I’m not just talking about inter-human cruelty. I’m talking about whole species becoming extinct, asteroids hitting planets, black holes gobbling up stars.
Barbara Ehrenreich
Baseball began early for me. When I was 5, my father took two Little League bats and put them on a lathe. He whittled them down and sanded the bats so they were the proper size for my brother and me. He began by throwing tennis balls to us. Eventually, we practiced hitting and fielding at a field near our house.
Keith Hernandez
There’s one secret to hitting hard, and that is to completely dedicate your body. That’s the difference between a man going forward and a man going backward, no matter how big he is.
Ray Lewis
I was asleep, in the upstairs bedroom, in the rear of the house. There was this tremendous crash, there was a terrible wind force hitting my body, and then I blanked out.

Like millions of others, I have been plagued by the devastating effects of cancer hitting not one, but multiple members of my family.
Tom DeLonge
I think I have a natural hitting ability.
AB de Villiers
Hitting someone with a shoe is in principle anti-Dalit. If you investigate stories about hitting someone with a shoe, you will find that this sort of language was used only by those who were upper-caste.
Ravish Kumar
Whoever’s hitting in front of you or behind you is going to determine how you get pitched, but there’s nothing you can do.
J. D. Martinez
I’m hitting it better than last year. The putting is getting close now, too.
Lee Westwood
I don’t want to act like hitting homers isn’t a great feeling, because it is.
Nolan Arenado
When you start hitting some shots, you build some confidence.
Jared Dudley
I remember hitting Sarah Michelle Gellar with a right hook during my first week on the job. It was awful. They usually pair actors with stunt doubles to avoid things like that.
Eliza Dushku
I take a tremendous amount of punishment and abuse every weekend because every team serves at me. So I have to carry the offensive load. I’m hitting the ball all the time.
Karch Kiraly
I get the normal stats, like tackles and pass completion and high-intensity runs. I get them after every game to see how similar they are to every game and to make sure I’m hitting the targets – or not too far away from them.
Aaron Ramsey
We had four guys in the family, so somebody was always hitting somebody or chasing somebody or getting mad or fighting or wrestling – that was just what you did. So when you’re the youngest, it’s good for you. You figure out real early how to get out of headlocks and holds.
Michael Keaton
It’s easier to go outside and play basketball. You can shoot around by yourself. Play pick-up. Whereas with baseball, no one likes putting a ball on a tee, hitting it, chasing it and putting it back on a tee. You need more than a few guys. So I was always in the neighborhood playing basketball with my friends.
Anthony Rendon
I think hitting is more a mentality than a philosophy. A philosophy is somebody telling you the way they think it should be. Well, different people believe in different things. My thing is this: Be ready to hit.
Chili Davis
The reality is that we have a weakened energy infrastructure, and anything above a Category 3 hurricane hitting Puerto Rico would be devastating towards that infrastructure.
Ricardo Rossello
Obviously, we can hit home runs, but there’s more to hitting and there’s more to winning than that.
Nolan Arenado
Now, performing is second nature and I love every second of it. It is a very emotional thing when I can’t play a song; maybe I’m hitting on something that I don’t want to deal with. All of it is so personal. It is like therapy.
Vanessa Carlton
Don’t hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft.
Theodore Roosevelt
Golf, tennis, I think we respect one another and the crowd. If you see golf tournaments, as well, on the side, no one’s yelling, no one’s talking. There’s a lot of quiet there before someone is hitting the swing or stroke. So is tennis. It’s a very respectful sport.
Bernard Tomic
My game is kind of built around hitting shots – that’s what I take pride in, and it’s what separates myself from other guys.
Graham DeLaet
I did speak to a counsellor after hitting rock bottom. It really did help, talking to somebody that didn’t know me and just pouring my heart out to them in a few sessions.
Kell Brook
I think I might be hitting the zeitgeist. All around you, you’re looking at beautiful people that have been turned into robots. Maybe the eye is craving a little upper lip fur.
Marilyn Minter
I have been hitting people and hurting them since I was 16 years old.
Jermell Charlo
In the nets, Joe Root hits the most sixes. He tries to take us down all the time. I think everyone is capable of hitting big sixes and I think I’m the best of all of them. But Jos is the one guy that everyone knows is out front. Jos is power with timing.
Moeen Ali
As actors, we’re so used to the axe falling, and then we all go our separate ways. I can tell you, the feeling amongst the cast in ‘Nashville’ is, we don’t feel like we’re done. It feels like, in some way, we’re just hitting our stride.
Chris Carmack
I always pick out my own clothes, ‘cos I love hitting the stores, be it in India or abroad.
Nidhhi Agerwal
I’m always amazed when a pitcher becomes angry at a hitter for hitting a home run off him. When I strike out, I don’t get angry at the pitcher, I get angry at myself. I would think that if a pitcher threw up a home run ball, he should be angry at himself.
Willie Stargell
Play the pass at the right moment – not on a dry pitch and not hitting it hard enough. We don’t have to accept it; that was a mistake – no goalkeeper should dribble in this situation.
It’s so much nicer to be able to do your job with someone who’s helping you, and you’re helping them. Then, it becomes a tennis match where you’re hitting the ball back and forth, and you’re a team.
Aneurin Barnard
All through Miami, the guys who grew up with me hitting at the place I hit, they all call me Flaco. Nobody calls me J.D. It’s like, ‘Hey, Flaco.’
J. D. Martinez
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head – that’s assault, not leadership.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
The whole idea is to propose an immersive experience. When you watch tennis, you watch from the outside, you’re far from the court, the camera is far away and the whole story is about two persons hitting a tennis ball and trying to win.
Patrick Mouratoglou
One of my favourite parts of training is doing it with Dad in the local nets. When I do that, I feel like a kid again. We never argue. He has to put up with some bad moods from me when I’m not hitting it as I’d like. He’s very placid. He’s not a pushy parent at all.
Ellyse Perry
Hitting the ball was easy. Running around the bases was the tough part.
Mickey Mantle
I can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a reporter.
Russel Honore
I’m the same guy I’ve always been. I’m the same guy now as when I was hitting 50 home runs. I don’t change.
David Ortiz
Hitting in general is, I think, pretty tough.
Trea Turner
When you start off a T20 innings you want someone who is going to be hitting the top of off stump, causing problems and being quite disciplined with the ball.
Isa Guha
My father took me to see Hank Williams on December 14th, 1952. I was two years and four months of age. And I remember a little cool eddy of hair hitting my cheek, and I remember the smell of his hair oil, and I remember the mingling tonality of the small talk before the show started. Those are my memories.
Rodney Crowell
Believe me, if Donald Trump didn’t have some point that he’s making, hitting home with people, he could not have come this far – as much as a showman as he may be.
Steven Van Zandt
From drought-parched Brazil to the increasingly ice-free Arctic Ocean, from the rising seas along the Florida coast to the punishing heat waves hitting South Asia, in communities large and small, rich and poor, urban and remote, we can see the irrefutable evidence of what science has long told us was coming.
Brian Deese
The difference between sentiment and being sentimental is the following: Sentiment is when a driver swerves out of the way to avoid hitting a rabbit on the road. Being sentimental is when the same driver, when swerving away from the rabbit, hits a pedestrian.
Frank Herbert
It’s just skating, and you’re going to have a couple of mistakes. Even in practice, you’re not hitting 100%.
Gracie Gold
I love to talk about hitting. It’s a passion of mine.
J. D. Martinez
The toughest thing in hitting shouldn’t be deciding when to swing. It is, for me, deciding when not to swing. You should be swinging from the time you get into the batter’s box until something says don’t swing.
Chili Davis
I have a small room to write in. One wall is completely covered in books. And I face the window with the curtain closed to stop the light hitting the computer.
Anne Enright
I do not want to be a player who is known for hitting those 20-odd runs.
Ravindra Jadeja
The key is to hit the ball first, then the sand. Even if you catch it a bit thin, you’ll still get plenty of run. Hitting it fat is what you want to avoid.
Ernie Els
When you find yourself hitting up against a wall over and over again, it’s time to try a different route.
Gretchen Bleiler
A lot of hitters stay away from the plate, some are close up, some are forward, some are back. The thing about hitting is this: You have to know the strike zone. That’s the most important thing. Hit strikes and put the bat on the ball.
Stan Musial
I was hitting .360 when I was diagnosed. I didn’t forget how to play while I was recovering. I don’t know if the cancer is gone for good. I don’t think anyone ever knows, but no one is going to steal my joy for as along as I’m able to play baseball.
Eric Davis
Hitting Ali in the body or on the arms was like hitting a piece of cement.
Ken Norton
Golf isn’t just about hitting a lot of drivers. I grew up playing on my front lawn, chipping and putting into soup cans, out of the ivy and over rose bushes and hedges – the little Alcott Golf and Country Club. I just loved having a wedge in my hands.
Amy Alcott
I’ve seen a lot of people skipping warm-up and hitting the cardio machine, but that’s not right. It’s important to dedicate 15 minutes of warm-up time before exercise, and after exercise.
Sana Khan
Well, I thought to myself if Rey Mysterio could do it, why can I do it? So I always took up his style, even as far as hitting the second rope.
Zelina Vega
I have no idea what my batting average was in high school, but I know it wasn’t below .450, and that’s pretty good hitting where I come from.
Joe Namath
When I first started working, I thought I would have a career in my 20s and a family in my 30s. But when I got pregnant with my first, I was really just hitting my stride professionally. That’s when I realized it wasn’t an either/or decision.
Stephanie Ruhle
Anytime you got me hitting jump shots, you can’t do nothing but feed off me.
Ben Wallace
I feel I am getting better and better, hitting harder and getting bigger.
Callum Smith
Yeah, she was hitting me hard. She was drunk and she was hitting me hard.
David Gest
James Franco is a Method actor. I respect Method actors, but he never snapped out of character. Whenever we’d have to get in the ring for boxing scenes, and even during practice, the dude was full-on hitting me.
Tyrese Gibson
One of my biggest fan bases is probably Macedonians, they always get behind me. They’re always hitting me up on Facebook speaking Macedonian to me which I don’t understand, so I get my dad to translate it for me.
Alexander Volkanovski
Surfing big waves is not an extreme sport to me. I fall off, tumble down, and come up. My heart’s racing because I’m thinking I almost drowned, and I thank God I can breathe again, but I always think, ‘What am I hitting?’ Water.
Paul Walker
Whenever you see me and I’m hitting ground ball after ground ball, you know I’m not feeling right.
J. D. Martinez
There is no such thing as natural touch. Touch is something you create by hitting millions of golf balls.
Lee Trevino
Teams are always hitting me in the gut, trying to grab me when I jump and stuff like that. But I expect it.
J. J. Watt
Some great players, like Ted Williams and Stan Musial, had one more great hitting season left around the age of 40.
George Vecsey
A big part of managing a golf course is managing your swing on the course. A lot of guys can go out and hit a golf ball, but they have no idea how to manage what they do with the ball. I’ve won as many golf tournaments hitting the ball badly as I have hitting the ball well.
Jack Nicklaus
Comedians are always hitting the topical notes that are on everybody’s minds.
Yakov Smirnoff
The three-thousand hitting thing was the first time I let individual pressure get to me. I was uptight about it. When I saw the hit going through, I had a sigh of relief more than anything.
Carl Yastrzemski
When you make a book or you make a movie, it is almost like hitting on somebody. It’s not because you want to seduce people that you will seduce them; you can hit on somebody and it doesn’t work. But when you hit on them and it works, then it’s really cool.
Marjane Satrapi
It’s something that black men still go through to this day, which is women clutching their purses, hitting the lock button on store, or just basic attitudes. And even as a U.S. congressman, as a black man, it is very, very frustrating, and you build up an internal anger about it that you can’t act on.
Cedric Richmond
I used to joke I was a point-and-click actor. My whole process has been about trusting your instincts and hitting your mark.
Daniel Radcliffe
Toughest job in baseball is the general manager. Second toughest is the hitting coach.
Ken Harrelson
It makes common sense that children, whose brains are rapidly developing, should not be hitting their heads hundreds of times per season.
Ann McKee
I wouldn’t describe myself as a home run hitter. I’m just trying to hit the ball hard in the gaps. Just backspinning baseballs and hitting line drives.
Andrew Benintendi
If a speculator is correct half of the time, he is hitting a good average. Even being right 3 or 4 times out of 10 should yield a person a fortune if he has the sense to cut his losses quickly on the ventures where he is wrong.
Bernard Baruch
What a perfect way to end the home stand, by hitting sixty-two for the city of St. Louis and all the fans. I truly wanted to do it here and I did. Thank you St. Louis.
Mark McGwire
I loved playing football, but I hated the games because it’s a lot of pressure. I just loved putting on the pads and hitting my friends.
Daniel Bryan
What’s the point of hitting pads, landing 10,000 punches, and then landing punches that are soft as feathers in the fight? I hit hard.
Jessica Andrade
Something that can instantly lift my mood is hitting the gym with a friend.
Natalya Neidhart
I can’t throw a nickel from the Capitol without hitting a think tank that’s been financed by one of the Gulf States.
Chris Murphy
Hitting is an art, but not an exact science.
Rod Carew
If I found the cure for dystrophy tomorrow, I would do a telethon in four weeks for acute pain that in this country is a bigger problem than cancer, heart, sickle cell, anemia, name it. It is – it’s hitting 70 million Americans.
Jerry Lewis
Once we start hitting lyrical themes that can whack you from all these different perspectives, we know we’re onto something special.
Chester Bennington
I played other sports, so when I played golf, I wanted to have fun. And hitting it far is fun.
Gary Woodland
It’s bad timing, but a lot of kids become teenagers just as their parents are hitting their mid-life crisis. So everybody’s miserable and confused and seeking that new sense of identity.
Laurie Halse Anderson
When I was up there at the plate, my purpose was to get on base anyway I could, whether by hitting or by getting hit.
Shoeless Joe Jackson
Hitting the road with Steps is going to be so much fun.
Saara Aalto
Adrenaline is a huge deal. All of a sudden you start hitting the golf ball a little bit farther. You learn to stay within yourself and what you have to do to calm yourself down and stay within your game plan.
Gary Woodland
Tyria’s a big world. We get a grand tour in ‘Ghosts of Ascalon.’ We’re in Divinity’s Reach, we’re in Lion’s Arch, we’re in Ebonhawke, we’re in the Dragon’s Land, we’re in Ascalon. We’re basically hitting a lot of the major human and charr locations.
Jeff Grubb
We’ve been playing in the sandbox of creation for millions of years. We ruin one environment, we move on to the next – manifest destiny. Now it’s hitting us collectively: Our mother’s life is in our hands.
The fall of 1912 my fielding was above the average, but my hitting was not so good. However, I was the talk of the town because of my peculiar way of catching a fly ball. They later named it the Vest-Pocket Catch.
Rabbit Maranville
The more obstinately you try to learn how to shoot the arrow for the sake of hitting the goal, the less you will succeed in the one and the further the other will recede.
Eugen Herrigel
The physical side of my game – I know I’m hitting the stats I want to hit, but I want more assists and goals.
Robert Snodgrass
In Afghanistan and Iraq we would often get cowardly fire and rounds hitting us from the sides but we just hunker down and keep going, we don’t turn the mission around.
Dan Crenshaw
When news of the first plane’s hitting the World Trade Center reached them, bin Laden’s followers exploded with joy. But shrewder members of al-Qaeda and the Taliban leadership in Afghanistan realized that the attacks might not be the stunning victory that bin Laden, and many in the West, took them to be.
Peter Bergen
Hitting the sled is something a lineman can do to get ready for the season. A running back can’t practice, carrying the ball by himself but a lineman can work on his blocking.
Mike Webster
My wife and I both come from Irish families. There are two kinds of Irish families: the hitting kind and the kidding kind. If you’re fortunate – and both of us are – you come from the kidding kind of Irish family.
P. J. O’Rourke
Hitting .400 is something you can do by yourself. But you have to rely on guys getting on base at the right time to drive in that many runs.
Harmon Killebrew
You know, I still love the innocent parts of the game. I love hitting tennis balls. I love seeing the young guys do well. I’ll still have a lot of friends to watch. I’ll miss the relationships probably the most. As time passes, I’ll probably miss the tennis more.
Andy Roddick
With a tennis racket strapped tightly to her hiking pack, Martina Navratilova began her ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro. The tennis legend had visions of celebrating at the summit of Africa’s highest peak by hitting a couple balls to see how far they might fly in the thin air at 19,341 feet.
Don Yaeger
For me, fitness is not just about hitting the gym; it is also about an inner happiness and an overall well-being.
Rakul Preet Singh
When you get one blocked and another partially blocked, you’ve got to see if you’re hitting them low or what.
Adam Vinatieri
I think you start hitting home runs, and you start getting caught up in seeing how far you can hit them. They’re fun, but you really only have to hit them a foot over the fence. They all count the same.
Vernon Wells
Throughout my career, I’ve always loved hitting deep shots over the top. A lot of times, those plays just come to you. You don’t want to force it.
Nick Foles
When I first entered this business, I said, ‘Well, this will be good to stay in for 10 years or so; then I’ll start a family.’ Then 10 years came, and I thought, ‘I’m just hitting my stride. There’s no way I’m leaving.’
Stephanie Ruhle
Every shot feels like the first shot of the day. If I’m on the range hitting shot after shot, I can hit them just as good as I did when I was 30. But out on the course, your body changes between shots. You get out of the cart, and you’ve got this 170-yard 5-iron over a bunker, and it goes about 138.
Lee Trevino
Fundamentally, I’ve always been a fan of actually looking at our whole state tax system and really figuring out how we reform our tax system so that everyone’s paying their fair share but we don’t have a lot of nickel and diming with 100 taxes that end up hitting people that maybe can’t bear it the most.
Pramila Jayapal
When I get time after pack up, I try hitting the gym or go for a jog.
Shaheer Sheikh
The unhappy irony is that, while ‘Glee’ is hitting the heights, school arts funding is being slashed across the country due to the steep recession and declining tax revenues.
James Wolcott
A band like Depeche Mode would go out and record them hitting a trash can with a steel rod or something and recording it. And that would be one of their sounds of the drums. I love the creativeness of that kind of really raw sampling.
Chino Moreno
I’m one of those people that picks up the remote control and just keep hitting constantly, even if I like the show I’m watching.
Gilbert Gottfried
I’ve always been able to get into the box, but in the past, I’d been very rash in my finishing; I wasn’t clear with what I was doing in the final third. When it came to shooting, I was very rushed. I wasn’t hitting the ball cleanly.
Aaron Ramsey
All the lessons are in nature. You look at the way rocks are formed – the wind and the water hitting them, shaping them, making them what they are. Things take time, you know?
Diane Lane
It doesn’t matter what the scoreboard says. I’m always having fun, talking to other guys. They even come to first base and ask me about hitting. I try to help them out as much as I can in the 30 seconds before the pitcher throws the next pitch. That’s me. I don’t think I will ever change that.
Albert Pujols
Being blond just makes me feel happier, like when the sun’s hitting you. The blond pops. It’s cheerful.
Tinsley Mortimer
I feel, if keep hitting the same shot, I get better at it.
Shikhar Dhawan
I used to be the chief guest in all the prize distribution ceremonies of shooting competitions. I tried my hand on a lot of guns, and my aim improved. I started hitting tiny targets, like a mineral bottle cap.
Nana Patekar
For men, as they get bogged down with responsibilities, commitments, bureaucracy, it is a fantasy just to think of shedding everything literally, walking away with nothing at all, and just hitting the road.
Lee Child
Hitting bottom and hitting it hard was the worst thing that ever happened to me and the best thing that ever happened to me.
Dave Ramsey
Everything I read about hitting a midlife crisis was true. I had such a struggle letting go of youthful things and learning how to exist and have enthusiasm while settling into the comfort of an older age.
David Bowie
America is the only major country that tries to ascertain who was the first applicant to invent the product or procedure. This may seem fair, but long proceedings to determine precisely when each party conceived an idea result mostly in keeping innovations from hitting the market.
Robert Pozen
When I was in Van Halen I was hitting notes that were out of my range. I never went for those registers before until Eddie pulled it out of me.
Gary Cherone
Writing the first draft is like hitting the beach on D Day. You don’t stop to mourn the dead or comfort the wounded. You get off the beach because, if you don’t, you’ll die there.
Matt Hughes
Superstorm Sandy inflicted havoc and heartache throughout the Northeast, hitting the Big Apple and its surrounding coastal towns hard.
Russel Honore
In the past, missionaries have traveled to far countries with the message of the gospel – with great hardship and often with the loss of life. In contrast, we can reach millions instantly from the comfort of our homes by merely hitting the ‘send’ button on our computers, or with iPads, or phones.
Ray Comfort
I typically opt for a fade when I’m hitting into greens. It’s just an easier shot to control.
Brooks Koepka
I’m very tech-forward. However, I also think hitting the pause button is not a bad thing, and really connecting with people one-to-one viscerally, having a connection with someone, is really important.
Ashton Kutcher
Who would people rather see, a real hitter hitting home runs or a pitcher swinging a wet newspaper?
Max Scherzer
We all started snowboarding in the beginning as a family just to be closer together, go on trips. It was our soccer, but instead of Dad yelling at me from the sideline he is there riding with me and hitting the jumps even before I am hitting them.
Shaun White
To be the best, you need to spend hours and hours and hours running, hitting the speed bag, lifting weights and just focusing on training.
Sugar Ray Leonard
I didn’t get much time in between wrapping up ‘Shakeela’ and commence the shoot for ‘Kaagaz.’ With whatever time I had on my hands, I did my best to look the part. Instead of hitting the gym, I took up an organic approach to lose weight. I also cut down on oily and junk food and had small meals in between shoots.
Pankaj Tripathi
I’ve been putting 100% of work into defense like I do hitting because that way I can help my team more.
Jose Altuve
When I was getting overly ‘droppy,’ that’s when I was hitting shots left and right. That’s what we were doing, so maybe if my swing was a touch flatter, I wouldn’t drop the club as much.
Lydia Ko
I still remember my quote from the 2007 World Cup, when I said scoring two threes was as good as hitting a six. That was me trying to justify what you couldn’t. To me, and this was before I became director of cricket, we just couldn’t do that again.
Andrew Strauss
When it comes to hitting solid drives, the secret is to swing within yourself. I know that sounds like a cliche, but it’s true. If you swing at 100 miles per hour and hit it on the toe, you won’t hit the ball as far as you would with an 80-mph swing that catches the ball in the center of the clubface.
Sergio Garcia
The biggest thing in training camp is you don’t always get to see the hitting aspect. Whether a guy is easy to tackle or whether he’s brought down easy.
Travis Kelce
Boxing is a metaphor for hitting back and showing you can win in life.
Takashi Miike
I am hitting my head against the walls, but the walls are giving way.
Gustav Mahler
I don’t understand why youngsters today start hitting gym at an early age. I believe the right age for going to gyms is after 35, when you are neither young, nor old.
Sharat Saxena
Actors are always nervous about not only hurting each other, but maybe perhaps hitting each other’s face and ending one’s career.
Bryce Dallas Howard
We keep waiting for the American people to wake up, and they keep hitting the snooze bar. But something, folks, someday, will wake them up. Of that I’m confident.
Rush Limbaugh
My music, it’s hitting the real people. It’s hitting the mums, it’s hitting the blokes and the lads, it’s also hitting the kids and the people my age.
Thomas Grennan
I really do try hard to be a good teammate. I can’t run very fast, but I try to always run hard. I may strike out a lot, but I try to walk to set up the guys who are hitting after me.
Jim Thome
I don’t enjoy hitting and hurting anyone at all, I’m not a madman.
Bob Sapp
If my edge is dull, my sword is dull, and I don’t want to fight another guy whose sword is dull. If you’ve got two steel swords going back and forth hitting each other, what’s gonna happen? Both of them are going to get sharper. Everybody that’s in the industry has lost their edge.
Kendrick Lamar
What I say goes. I’m hitting shots that I want to hit. I’m doing the things that I want to do. I play it my way.
Bubba Watson
I wake up late, say 10 or 11, because we’ve usually been out and about town until 2 or 3 A.M. listening to music at the jazz clubs or hitting the jazz clubs post-theater.
Tamara Tunie
It’s not hard. When I’m not hitting, I don’t hit nobody. But when I’m hitting, I hit anybody.
Willie Mays
I’m heavier, but with muscle rather than flab. It’s a massive difference. It means I don’t get as tired sometimes and it means that I’m hitting the ball a lot farther, about 15 yards more with my driver.
Lee Westwood
Just about every rock band and every guitar player from 1964 to 1984. To me, that’s the golden period of rock. From the first Beatles album hitting America to the last Van Halen album with David Lee Roth. That’s where all my favorite rock exists.
Paul Gilbert
There is hard hitting, but the hitting is not nearly as hard as it used to be.
Jim Otto
I am a woman, so I never want to hide that or be like, ‘I’m one of the boys,’ because I’m not. I am aware of our audience. We always aim for the right combo of not hitting people over head but still getting our message across.
Nikki Glaser
For so many years, I was watching my tee shots slide hard to the right. I used to think I was hitting a draw at times, and the ball was still curving to the right! I still prefer to play a little fade, but I’ve had to recalibrate my visuals.
Tony Finau
The truth is I like the style of playing the ball out and hitting long passes.
Aymeric Laporte
Making the best-seller list is a big deal; it’s like being nominated for an Oscar. Hitting No. 1 is like actually winning the award. It’s very gratifying.
Brad Thor
When things are tough in training camp; when things are tough in season; when it’s good, you don’t want guys hitting too high or too low or depressed. It’s just draining for everybody.
Derek Carr
I think everyone’s favorite part of the game is hitting – especially when you’re having success – considering it’s so hard to do.
Cody Bellinger
I like speed, so I like taking the jet skis out and hitting the water, or hitting the lake. In the winter, unfortunately, I used to ski a lot but I haven’t been able to ski in the past few years because thank God I’ve been working, so that’s a good reason not to.
Laz Alonso
When I was still a bright-eyed McKinsey consultant, I remember hitting a point where I didn’t know what to do next, and someone gave me the book, ‘How Remarkable Women Lead,’ and I read it and scribbled in it, and it felt like a guide in helping me figure out my career.
Kathryn Minshew
I was very unhappy at one point and dealt with my unhappiness by hitting people.
Michaela Coel
There is a special sensation in getting good wood on the ball and driving a double down the left-field line as the crowd in the ballpark rises to its feet and cheers. But, I also remember how much fun I had as a skinny barefoot kid hitting a tennis ball with a broomstick on a quiet, dusty street in Panama.
Rod Carew
There’s some times where I wish I would strike out instead of hitting a little dribbler. I wish sometimes I gave myself a true swing, a true whack at it, instead of going in the dugout like, ‘I didn’t give my best effort.’
Nolan Arenado
If I’m hitting 3-wood and everyone else is hitting driver, it’s a level playing field. If I’m hitting driver straight, then I think I’m playing at a different level than everybody else.
Gary Woodland
Nobody had Trackman when we were 15 years old. In terms of hitting it far, I’ve always hit it further than anyone else in my age group.
Xander Schauffele
Baseball and golf have a lot of things in common, including the fact that players in both games love hitting for power. However, in both sports, trying to do so strictly with muscle strength doesn’t work very well. In fact, I see a lot of guys in both baseball and golf struggle when they try to swing with tight arms.
Ken Griffey Jr.
It’s hard to believe a kid hitting golf balls in the cow pastures of New Mexico could have accomplished what I have accomplished.
Billy Casper
I don’t know what was in his mind, but I do know Ford was stricken by what he had done, by hitting me.
Henry Fonda
I was hitting 40, and I realized I needed to just move on in life and do something practical.
Lee Isaac Chung
I’m a stickler for structure. So I tend to make sure I’m hitting certain points in the script and that I’m progressing and moving things along. You know, are the characters keeping the plot moving along? And are they true, and do I know their motivations?
Allison Schroeder
I felt like, by the end of the week in the U.S. Amateur, I was never aiming at a flag; I was just hitting it at slopes and just letting the natural contours take over.
Peter Uihlein
I feel like I have a target on my back, but ain’t nobody hitting it.
Bianca Belair
After doing a juice cleanse, I’m motivated to eat healthier and not emotionally. Cleansing is like my meditation. It makes me stop, focus and think about what I’m putting into my body. I’m making a commitment to my health and hitting the reset button.
Salma Hayek
In the 1980s when I was growing up in the Berkshire town of Maidenhead I was heavily into tennis. It was the era of Borg and McEnroe. I used to spend hours hitting balls against a wall, imagining I was beating them both.
Peter Jones
The key to performing a song isn’t always about hitting the right notes, but about telling a story.
Megan McKenna
If I can hit the ball the way I want to hit it on the range, I’d rather do that than play golf. I just love the feeling of hitting good golf shots.
Vijay Singh
The crowd gives us so much energy and we are able to really feed off of it. Hitting those shots and having the crowd go crazy helps boost our confidence. We love our fans.
Steve Nash
I’m just old enough to be able to say I got those very first Beatles records right as they were hitting America. My father brought them home. It was definitely the earliest musical influence on my life, and still one of the greatest.
Lee Ranaldo
Eddie Haas talked a lot about not hitting the ball in the air.
Dale Murphy
Once you have an animal, you have to commit to it. They need a sense of freedom, but, of course, they must have some boundaries. I am against hitting them though; just send the vibe and that will do it.
Connie Stevens
There’s one thing I’m really good at, and that’s hitting the ball over a net, in a box. I’m excellent.
Serena Williams
I started by hitting balls against walls with an apple crate board.
Evonne Goolagong Cawley
Thus so wretched is man that he would weary even without any cause for weariness… and so frivolous is he that, though full of a thousand reasons for weariness, the least thing, such as playing billiards or hitting a ball, is sufficient enough to amuse him.
Blaise Pascal
I enjoy ‘The Apprentice’ and the one that’s called ‘Take My Life’ and the other one called ‘Stop Hitting Me.’
Garry Shandling
The United States dollar took another pounding on German, French and British exchanges this morning, hitting the lowest point ever known in West Germany.
Gordon Sinclair
In Cuba, I would start the first two months hitting around .260 with three or four home runs. After the first half of the season, I would get hot, and that’s when I would have my best results.
Yoenis Cespedes
There’s a lot of worse things going on in the world than me hitting a bad five wood.
Tommy Fleetwood
Tennis is a running game, not a hitting game – it’s not golf.
Mats Wilander
When I got on tour in 2014, I was hitting a slice off the tee. No joke. Yeah, I had plenty of power, and I knew how to play the curve, but I was a tour player who was watching his tee shots peel 30, 40 yards to the right.
Tony Finau
Most amateurs are so worried about mis-hitting the shot or hitting it off line, they don’t make an aggressive move. You’d be surprised how much better your swing will get if you let your natural athletic ability shine. So go after it.
Keegan Bradley
How do you tackle Rob Gronkowski? You gotta hit him low, man – hit him in his knees. That’s the best chance you have of hitting him.
Chris Harris, Jr.
By training with Ken Hahn, who comes from that full-contact karate school where he’s hitting me in the back of the head while I’m hitting the bag, I learned that pain is a temporary state.
Frank Mir
I always make a joke about this but it’s true; Conor can make a highlight video of training hard and like, ‘Alright guys, title shot. Give the man a title shot.’ People will be saying ‘look what he is doing, look at the way he is hitting the bag, look at the way, I don’t know, he is pushing himself in the wheelchair.’
Beneil Dariush
There are pictures of me in the garden at the age of one with a little plastic club. I had no concept of golf but I loved hitting the ball. I could do it all day. Only when I got to five was I playing every day though.
Justin Rose
One guy that I wish was here right now, Ted Williams, helped me so much, our long talks, not about hitting but about fishing, one of Ted’s passions, and I wish he was here today to share this with me because I owe so much to Ted Williams.
Wade Boggs
We need to see many more people starting businesses and becoming their own boss, but the squeezed middle exists as much within this group as in the population at large as rising costs are hitting small businesses – who after all are consumers too.
Chuka Umunna
I’m still good for hitting the road. I’ll be doing that a fair bit.
Bob Weir
There are times I do single wicket bowling, and there are times I try, practise, hitting a specific length.
Vijay Shankar
I have a terrible habit of shopping after I go to the gym or hitting eBay.
Edie Campbell
But, I would say when I was four years old and I was at the Alan King Tennis Tournament and I was hitting with all the pros that would come to town. They would get me on the court or take notice and that stayed with me.
Andre Agassi
Logistically, working on a television show and hitting your mark and leaning to your right and knowing where the camera is – I literally felt like I was on another planet.
Donna Lynne Champlin
Every time I am directing, I question why in God’s name I’m doing it again. It’s like hitting yourself in the forehead with a hammer.
Sydney Pollack
As a producer and director, I’ve tried for years to get properties off the ground for girls, and I’ve been hitting a brick wall.
Melanie Mayron
The art of boxing is seeing spaces and being able to take shots. The hitting and being hit have to become one. Your reactions have to be so in the moment. There’s no time to think.
Garry Shandling
This kind of music was just hitting England, so we were getting this following in clubs in Birmingham just cause we were trying to do something different.
Jim Capaldi
Hitting is better than sex.
Reggie Jackson
I love sharing my knowledge of hitting with others. Now coaches and players at all levels can learn my systematic approach to hitting a baseball with more consistency, mental strength and accuracy.
Dusty Baker
After ‘Arrested Development,’ I didn’t know for sure if I wanted to be an actor. I was hitting this wall, where I was the ‘ethnic best friend’ or the ‘sassy teenager.’ It felt like the same note, and I didn’t feel like I was growing.
Alia Shawkat
Most of those melodies are me trying to find out what notes fit, and then hitting ones that don’t fit in a very interesting way.
Brian Eno
I like hitting people. The best feeling is when you hit so hard, pow! You get a jarring headache.
Rohan Marley
I’m always looking for that movie that feels like it’s hitting me where I need it.
Kirsten Dunst
I’m sort of like Jean-Paul Goude, the graphic designer who used to style Grace Jones and shoot all her visuals, just meaning that I use all mediums in one – music, fashion, and art. I’m hitting it from all angles.
My college coach was like, ‘You ever thought of switch hitting,’ and I was like, ‘You know, I thought about it but I never really tried it.’
Eddy Alvarez
There’s nothing more fun than standing at the plate and hitting the ball really hard, see the ball go over the fence. It’s really a satisfying feeling. It always makes you feel like you’re doing your job.
Joey Votto
Hitting is like swimming. Once you learn the stroke, you never forget it.
Stan Musial
I think only a batsman will be able to tell you about the goose bumps he gets after hitting a perfect cover drive. I’m one of them.
Gautam Gambhir
It is really hard to do comedy; it takes a lot of energy and focus. It’s rather like music: It’s a lot of hitting notes precisely.
Christine Baranski
My kids are four years apart. They’re constantly fighting, hitting each other, grabbing the toy away from the other.
Mikey Garcia
To be the best, you need to spend hours and hours and hours running, hitting the speed bag, lifting weights and focusing on training.
Sugar Ray Leonard
One minute you’re starting left fielder, hitting home runs; the next, it’s career over. I was 20.
Richard Linklater
There’s no reason anybody should be reading too much into ‘Thrift Shop.’ I just have because I have a 10-year-old and a 7-year-old who are really into going to lyric websites, hitting print, and printing lyrics for every song that’s popular.
Al Madrigal
When I watch a comedy that’s just hitting you over the head with jokes constantly, some really hit, but if they miss, you’re like, ‘Eh.’
David Walton
Without action to de-carbonize our economies, unchecked climate change threatens to batter lives and economies around the world, hitting the poorest people hardest.
Arancha Gonzalez
This has been a great experience for me. The first couple of days you don’t always feel too well. You adjust to the fluid shifting, how to fly through space without hitting things or anybody else. But then you get in a groove.
Laurel Clark
Some of us have tough lives and find chocolate is a comfort and a friend. And some of us prefer a night on the sofa with Ant & Dec to hitting the gym. But whatever your excuse – and there is always an excuse – we are a nation of fatties.
Katie Hopkins
Just because you can leap off a drum kit doing a scissors kick while hitting a chord, people expect you to be an extrovert socially. But I’m not always comfortable with the idea of small talk at a party.
Alex Kapranos
I don’t want to get punched in the head anymore. I spent a couple of thousand dollars on the nose and teeth and everything’s been readjusted, so I don’t want anybody hitting me.
Frank Shamrock
I’m a man of different types of flavors and tastes. I like listening to things that inspire me. Older music, when instruments were being played, not just people hitting buttons. It’s manlier. You’re touching things to make sounds appear.
Action Bronson
One of my earliest memories is of bashing the keyboard with my hands, my chubby little baby hands, and I remember the sound hitting my face. It became my toy.
Christian McKay
Hitting is not an exact science.
Ben Zobrist
I enjoy hitting tennis balls. I haven’t lost any of the innocent parts of tennis. I just do it in front of less people.
Andy Roddick
When your hands are cold, and you’re hitting with old, low-quality irons – my first one was a Merlin model with a green shaft – you learn what to do to hit the ball solid.
Tony Finau
That daydreaming mode turns out to be restorative. It’s like hitting the reset button in your brain. And you don’t get in that daydreaming mode typically by texting and Facebooking. You get in it by disengaging.
Daniel Levitin
I don’t mind hitting the ball bad, but when I feel like I’ve hit the ball pretty good for four days and shoot an 81, it’s not golf.
John Daly
Saturday Night Live is hitting me on a regular basis again. This is my fourth decade that I’ve been lampooned on Saturday Night Live.
Geraldo Rivera
40 seems to be the new 25 in snooker so there is no rush, but I would like to start hitting the time where I’m more stable and regularly hitting the quarters and semis, push on and make some money.
Kurt Maflin
Tennis players need to be very focused and very intense, and I can show tennis players are not just hitting the little yellow ball and moving in between the white lines. I’m always trying to show my personality outside of the court.
Tomas Berdych
There are lots of people at our company who dedicate their time and effort to make sure that the journey from product design to hitting the screen is as seamless as possible.
Sara Davies
The best thing for me is the amount of DMs and people hitting me up every day saying, ‘Your music is providing me with answers.’ That blows my mind, because that’s what Alex Turner and Eminem were for me.
I can remember being young and being outside and watch guys go through what they go through with the police, and old ladies come outside their house and be like, ‘Oh, Lord, they’re hitting him,’ or whatever is happening. You see it right in front of your face.
Jason Mitchell
It is not my role to go out and do the power hitting. My job is to play my natural game.
Babar Azam
If you’re going to go out, I’d recommend the Boom Boom Room. That seems to be the hot spot that everyone’s hitting up during Fashion Week.
Lydia Hearst
There is more to the game than hitting it far. There are ways to make birdies other than hitting 350-yard drives. I pride myself on a good short game; I work very hard at it.
Luke Donald
You can be Michael Moore and make ‘Fahrenheit 9/11,’ but that’s hitting people over the head, and a lot of Americans don’t like to be hit over the head. I want to make films that make people walk out and say, ‘Wow, I really question if this is all right.’
Lexi Alexander
Our hitting coaches have done a great job of understanding when I don’t look right at the plate and getting me back on track.
Cody Bellinger
The key for me is really just to stay in a child-like state in the rehearsal studio. I’m really goofy and really silly and crazy. If I get too serious, I start hitting a wall.
Derek Hough
You go out on the practice range, and something kind of clicks, and you start hitting the ball very crisply. And you’re sure that you’ve found it, the holy grail – that all you have to do is hold your hand in a certain way. Then you go out on the golf course, and it’s completely disappeared.
Richard Thaler
Now even the American command is under siege. We are hitting it from the north, east, south and west. We chase them here and they chase us there. But at the end we are the people who are laying siege to them. And it is not them who are besieging us.
Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf
Rock and roll came into my life when I was about 12, 13, when Little Richard and Chuck Berry had just started hitting the shores of England.
Joe Cocker
In New Zealand, Tom Latham was batting and was continuously playing sweep shots. I tried googlies and leg spins but those didn’t work out against him. He was hitting me for boundaries. I was really disappointed.
Yuzvendra Chahal
I never blame myself when I’m not hitting. I just blame the bat and if it keeps up, I change bats. After all, if I know it isn’t my fault that I’m not hitting, how can I get mad at myself?
Yogi Berra
When you are in good form, you keep hitting the target. You may have the best match but you may still not have the goals. But scoring is most important and it feels so good that I have been knocking them in. It really boosts the morale.
Sunil Chhetri
I just couldn’t imagine hitting a child. But in ‘The Slap’ it’s an extreme situation. You have to ask yourself – would you step in if a child was out of control?
Jonathan LaPaglia
From a personal point of view, when you’re hitting the back of the net at Premier League level people recognize that you’re doing something right.
Robert Snodgrass
It’s only a hitch when you’re in a slump. When you’re hitting the ball its called rhythm.
Eddie Mathews
If you’re an independent voter, I’m willing to bet that you were not too happy at the prospect of hitting the polls on November 8, 2016. But let me guess – you did it anyway because after all, it’s your civic duty, right?
Fabrizio Moreira
But now there are more concussions due to not being used to the hard hitting.
Jim Otto
