Ten Quotes About Tools to Inspire Greatness

The Power of Tools

As the co-founders of Defiance Tools®, Rich and I live our lives immersed in tools. But the truth is, so does everybody. 

Tools are not always just a well-designed screwdriver, a handy tape measure or a great hammer. Rich and I obviously design, appreciate, use and sell those types of tools. But a tool is really anything that can help make your life better by helping you do a job faster, easier, safer or better.

Here at Defiance Tools, all of our tools for sale are designed to help make your life better. 

Whether they be bar & beverage tools, transportation tools (like our B2 Folding Electric Bike) or all types of tools & gadgets, here at Defiance Tools we are passionate about the power of all types of Tools to Navigate Life.

In keeping with the spirit of the power of tools, let's take a look at ten of our favorite quotes about tools that will inspire you. 

Ten Top Quotes About Tools to Inspire YOU

  1. “The best investment is in the tools of one's own trade.” – Benjamin Franklin

  2. “The intentions of a tool are what it does. A hammer intends to strike, a vise intends to hold fast, a lever intends to lift. They are what it is made for. But sometimes a tool may have other uses that you don't know. Sometimes in doing what you intend, you also do what the knife intends, without knowing.”   - Philip Pullman

  3. “It's best to have your tools with you. If you don't, you're apt to find something you didn't expect and get discouraged.” - Stephen King

  4.  “All the tools, techniques and technology in the world are nothing without the head, heart and hands to use them wisely, kindly and mindfully.” - Rasheed Ogunlaru

  5. “Make sure that you always have the right tools for the job. It's no use trying to eat a steak with a teaspoon, and a straw.” - Anthony T. Hincks

  6. “A good tool improves the way you work. A great tool improves the way you think.” - Jeff Duntemann

  7. “Give us the tools, and we will finish the job.” - Winston Churchill

  8. “Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them.” - Steve Jobs

  9. "There is a great satisfaction in building good tools for other people to use." - Freeman Dyson
