Never Give Up Day Tuesday 18th of August

Posted on 17th August 2020

Did you know that the 18th of August is “Never Give Up Day’?

One of the qualities that makes a good advocate is the ability never to give up when supporting someone to fight for their rights. Advocates must be tenacious. It is also a time when fighting for the support you need and your rights is getting harder and harder.

We have all been locked away for sometime now, only just emerging into the light. However the threat of further restriction is always hanging over our heads.

Never a more important time to ‘Never Give Up’. Here are some inspirational quotes to spur you on.

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”

Dale Carnegie 

“Don’t give up. There are too many nay-sayers out there who will try to discourage you. Don’t listen to them. The only one who can make you give up is yourself.”

Sidney Sheldon

“Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”

Harriet Beecher Stowe
