Don’t give up, if you have never tried.
This is a good quote, but not always true. You can give up if the goal your headed for might have more risks then positives, and giving up actually might be a better idea. For example, if the plant on top of the refrigerator needs watering desperately but you can’t reach it, what do you do? Go all Tarzan and climb on top of the counters to get to the plant? Or give up for fear of a broken or sprained bone? Giving up can sometimes be good for your help.
