Firm Quotations

A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him. - David Brinkley
A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.
David Brinkley

I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.
Leonardo da Vinci

I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.
Thomas Paine

And in my own life, in my own small way, I've tried to give back to this country that has given me so much. That's why I left a job at a law firm for a career in public service, working to empower young people to volunteer in their communities. Because I believe that each of us - no matter what our age or background or walk of life - each of us has something to contribute to the life of this nation.
Michelle Obama

Never give up and don't ask why because every situation does not need an answer. I'm a firm believer that I don't worry about anything I can't control.
Eric Davis
