When you’re in the middle of a journey toward accomplishing something, there will probably be setbacks and obstacles along the way, but the important thing is to never give up. Here are 24 quotes about not giving up to give you the inspiration to keep going.
You’re going to want to give up.
You’re going to want to take the easy path, forget this, and move on with your life.
You’re going to want to forget about your dreams, because who needs them anyway?
I’m telling you that you’re going to want to give up on this, whatever it is — your dreams, a new life, the business you’re trying so hard to make work — and the temptation to give up will be there at every corner, but if you can resist it and persevere, even when all logic tells you to give up now, I promise you, it will be worth it.
Don’t give up. You’re so close to succeeding.
If you just keep trying, just keep putting one foot in front of the other, one day you will persevere.
And it will all be worth it.

Please Stay: Why You Shouldn’t Give Up
I say this because you have a choice. It’s not a choice in whether or not you’re depressed, because that’s not your fault at all, but a choice of whether or not you’re going to get help and undertake the journey of recovering. It’s the choice of deciding to fight this. It’s the choice to not give up.
And I want you to stay.
Giving up is so tempting. It lures us in with its slick promises of freedom from the pain, but it takes everything you have.
Choosing life is scary. Choosing recovery is scary.
But I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again – it is worth it.
The key to your happiness is in your own hands. You can do this. You don’t need a relationship, better friends, a new job, the right college, or perfect grades to make you happy. You are enough just as you are. You have permission to be happy right now with each and every quirk, flaw, or blessing in your life.
But you have to choose to stay and fight this. You can’t give up.
That’s all that life asks of you – to stay along for the journey ahead.
