Abstract: Lower bounds are derived for the norms of solutions to a class of intitial-value problems associated with the damped evolution equation $ {u_{tt}} + A{u_t} + Bu = 0$ in Hilbert space. Under appropriate assumptions on the linear operator B it is shown that even in the special strongly damped case where $ A = \Gamma I,\Gamma > 0$, solutions are bounded away from zero as $ t \to + \infty $, even when $ \Gamma \to + \infty $.
