    Default Inspirational Sayings

    I have done a search and exhausted my efforts on this subject. I have located a custom sign maker who will inscribe any saying onto a wooden sign. I am looking for some inspirational firehouse sayings to consider. I want to hang this up over our door so when we go out on a run, we pass by it every time.

    I have a short list of ideas from my searching, but alot of the quotes and sayings are humourous, crude or sarcastic. I am looking for something serious and/or inspirational.

    Thanks in advance.

    “It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

    'When I reflect back on the whole thing , what I think is really important to bring out is that the courage and the bravery of the firemen was more outstanding than I thought it possibly could have been. You could look in their faces and you could see the fear. They knew what they were getting into. They knew what they were going to. They knew they were going to have the worst fire-fight of their lives, yet they all went, without question'.

    Default Classy saying

    An older firefighter from a nearby dept. who worked for FDNY years ago always leaves us with the following saying:

    "STAY LOW"

    We all think its great!!
    I have but one ambition in life and that is to become a firefighter.
