A master welder can strike an arc blindfolded, with one hand, upside down, in a snowstorm.     

Steven Robert Farnsworth

I became a welder. I was actually becoming an Engineer and I joined the wrong queue. And so I became a welder, without knowing what a welder was.     

Billy Connolly

Once you become successful, people know where you live, the type of house you live in, the kind of car you drive, the clothes you wear, and so it would be patronising to go and talk like a welder. Welding's a mystery to me now. You can't go back, your life changes every day.      

Billy Connolly

The Welder Way means rolling up your sleeves and getting it done.  It means no divas.  It means complete support for the artistic vision in charge – a philosophy of “what can I do to help you?”     

Allyson Currin

You are a welder if you have sun burn in the winter.

Nobody starts out knowing everything. You have to start at the bottom and pick people's brains. When I got out of the service, I became a sheet-metal worker. I was an apprentice for five years. I found out who the top people were in my trade, and I asked to work with them. I asked them a lot of questions. How can we do this a little faster, a little cheaper, a little better? Once they know where you're coming from, they open up.      

Lorenzo Gaytan

A workman at my farm showed me a broken metal bar. He fitted the two ends together, then subjected the joint to intense heat in the process of welding so that, as he explained, "the molecules flowed together in fusion." He told me that if he were to use a sledgehammer to hit the welded bar with force, it might break, but most likely not at the point where it had been welded. He was telling me that the metal bar could become strongest at its hitherto weakest place.     

Norman Vincent Peale

Steel can take on no other form than its current one for the person who cannot work with it. But any form is its current one for the machinist or blacksmith.      

Robert Pirsig

Forging has a way of taking hold of you until it becomes part of who you are.      

Robert Thomas

You are a welder if you have sun burn in the winter.     

Chantique Inti Decor

Welding is more than just grabbing a stick and going to work. There's a lot of science and knowledge involved.     

Mike Kuehnl

If you plan on becoming a TIG welder, you better plan on doing lots and lots of burning.     

Marty Rice

That lady welder and I are just friends. Just because I'm a welder, you know, doesn't mean I'm carrying a torch for her.     

Herman Munster

Boy, if my folks would only let me work. Then I could do all the things I want to do. I could take you dancing, the way you like to go, places you like to go to. You know, they need welders. They need 'em worse than soldiers.
