20 Inspirational ‘Never Give Up’ Quotes By Famous People


Many times, life throws you a curveball and you feel like giving up. You think that nothing is going well and you feel dejected and demotivated. If you’re thinking about giving up – wait. Most successful people in the world have failed at some point in their lives. Do you idolize someone and want to be like them? Yup, they’ve had to face failure too.

I can tell you from my personal experience that giving up is not an option. I’ve seen some failures in my life, but had I given up back then, I wouldn’t be enjoying the results of my persistence right now. You never know – you might be this close to success, but because you gave up, you missed out on it. More importantly, challenges and setbacks are a part of life – how you tackle them and move ahead is what matters.

Firstly, you need to realize that every single person in this world has seen some kind of failure, so you’re not the only one. If you’re going through some really tumultuous times – reach out to loved ones, close friends, a psychiatrist and share your thoughts with them. You’re not alone – always remember that.

But every now and then, each one of us needs a boost of morale and motivational quotes can be really helpful in that case. The quotes in this post are from famous people in the world who have achieved a great degree of success. These successful people are from different walks of life, and their insights on never giving up are extremely encouraging. I hope that when you read these quotes, you’ll find the inspiration you’re looking for.
