Giving Up Quotes

Quotes about Giving Up - Quotes about Not Giving Up

Generally, giving up is not the best way to reach your goals. Sometimes, however, persistence is no longer the best way to reach your high-level objectives. While finding alternative means to your goal should not be referred to as "giving up," it is important to know when to persevere and when to choose another way. Consider the quote attributed to Albert Einstein, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." before you continue to crash yourself against insurmountable obstacles.

Let these quotes help you in never giving up on yourself.

The darkest night is often the bridge to the brightest tomorrow.
