    Try this:

    Numquam desiste, numquam concede.

    Desiste and concede are both 2. pers. singular imperative forms, propably not the best possible form in this case. Someone else might have more elaborate ideas...

    Hi,
    Similar thing really - my family's motto has always been 'never give in' and very specifically 'in' not 'up'. The translation I got to was 'numquam cesseris' - would you agree with this or can you suggest something more appropriate. I'd really appreciate the confirmation or further input. Thanks!
