Motivational Quotes for Never Giving Up

Do you have a dream to pursue?  Are you taking on a new side hustle? Or are you getting out of your comfort zone – willingly or even unwilling?  According to Small Business Trends, 33% of Americans never started a business due to fear of failure.

You know reaching your goal will take determination and perseverance, which is easier said than done.  There will be fears, challenges, and failures when pursuing anything worthwhile.

I want to congratulate you on the courage to take this leap.  Here are 500 amazing motivational quotes to encourage you to take action, never give up, and pursue your dream.

Quote Selection Criteria

I apply the following selection criteria when I collect these words of wisdom.

  • No profanity. A good quote doesn’t need to use profanity to stress a point.
  • Gender-neutral. Avoid quotes that use gender words (ex. men, women). People are all created equal, and a good quote should apply to everyone. No one should feel excluded.
  • No unknown quotes. The quote must be given the proper credit.
  • Uplifting. The quotes should be motivating and encouraging.

The quotes are organized in alphabetical order, and you can use the Twitter function to Tweet the quote more easily. My goal is to make this the most amazing list of quotes about never giving up that you can inspire and share comfortably with anyone of all ages and gender.
