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; ``without constancy,'' says Addison, ``there is neither love, friendship, nor virtue in the world.'' [1913 Webster]
