Here is one NEVER GIVE UP poem I came across lately:

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
- Edgar A. Guest

Hope this inspires you.

I don't really know who he is. I came across the poem and felt that
it was very inspiring.

But still, my most favorite quote is from Anthony Robbins.
To me, he is the best success coach you can ever find.

i got this quote from someone i know, i don't know if he got it from someone else

"You never get a second chance to make a first impression, but it's the last one that counts most." Also, there is a quote in my sig.

“You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore”
