Quote of the Day

“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” —

Winston S. Churchill

The source for the Hardnox motto.

    Young people today seem to have largely lost this concept of PERSEVERANCE, along with INTEGRITY, and putting forth EFFORT. The Baby Boomer generation has made it too easy for so many young, Millennials, that they don’t understand strife, struggle, and the effort required to overcome. I would bet this quote is totally lost on most of them… Very sad.

    Oh– and I usually don’t say much to you, von Messer, but I definitely appreciate the quotes you send us. Many are very inspirational and thought provoking. Thank you!
