From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Firmness \Firm"ness\, n.
      The state or quality of being firm.
  
      Syn: {Firmness}, {Constancy}.
  
      Usage: Firmness belongs to the will, and constancy to the
                  affections and principles; the former prevents us from
                  yielding, and the latter from fluctuating. Without
                  firmness a man has no character; [bd]without
                  constancy,[b8] says Addison, [bd]there is neither
                  love, friendship, nor virtue in the world.[b8]
