21 Inspirational Quotes about Never Giving Up

What is “inspiration” to you?  If you were to look up the definition it would tell you that it is “a sudden feeling of enthusiasm, or a new idea that helps you to do or create something“.  That's a text-book definition of the word, but  to me it is so much more than that.  Inspiration is a subjective feeling caused by objective interpretation of experiences, words, people and every little thing in my life that I come in contact with.  I take NOTHING for granted.  I see the world through the eyes of my children… every experience lived as if it was my first time.  Most importantly, I choose never to give up.

How do you live each day?  What inspires you?

Here's 21 of my favorite “inspirational” quotes about “never giving up”… enjoy and be inspired!
