“SELF-DISCIPLINE is a form of FREEDOM. Freedom from laziness and lethargy, freedom from the expectations and demands of others, freedom from weakness and fear—and doubt. Self-discipline allows a pitcher to feel his individuality, his inner strength, his talent. He is a master of, rather than a slave to, his thoughts and emotions.“
