A History of Welding: Quotes, Sayings, and Facts
Today, when a saying’s particularly witty, sarcastic, sassy, or just incredibly quotable, it’s pure “fire.”
You could say that as well for all of these quotes for welding enthusiasts on everything having to do with their “burning passion.”
The history of famous welding quotes goes back to at least Vannoccio Biringuccio’s early welding text, Pirotechnica, where he describes the process as “an ingenious thing, little used, but of great usefulness.” It’s a great reminder of how a little spark of ingenuity can burst into a roaring flame of invention given the right control and care – good advice for welders and life alike.
Then there’s Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, where Joe Gargery, Pip’s blend of father and friend and proud blacksmith at the local forge tells him “Life is made of ever so many partings welded together.” Joe’s comment and parting is a bit of wisdom, and it comes at a time when the once-humble, now-proud Pip needs it most, as he has started to look down on his humble beginnings at the blacksmith forge. Joe’s comment isn’t just among literature’s great welding sayings, but is a saying that offers true life advice.
Sticking with authors and moving from the Victorian age into the present day, there’s Steven Robert Farnsworth author of Welding for Dummies. When it comes to welding quotes funny in nature, you can’t do much better than his gem, “A master welder can strike an arc blindfolded, with one hand, upside down, in a snowstorm.” Among quotes on welding, it’s the kind of saying that’s as funny as it is vivid, cutting to the point as quickly as you would want from any torch.
Finally, among welding quotes, there’s the torch-like fiery wit of playwright Allison Currin. You may not figure a Broadway playwright for welding job quotes, but her analogizing writing to welding in saying that “The Welder Way means rolling up your sleeves and getting it done” is a great way of showing the unceasing dedication to the craft required for each. Playwright is, after all, spelled playwright because a “wright” was someone who built things, such as a shipwright, carpenter – or welder.
Spanning a few centuries of its long history, we hope these quotes for welding get you fired up to forge ahead!
