    Hello,

    I am thinking about doing a tattoo and I'd like to do it in latin.

    I need to translate: '' Never give up ''
    If it can help, the meaning for me is to never let down your dreams/ambitions.

    Thanks

    Perhaps:
    Nunquam cede.
    or to multiple people:
    Nunquam cedite.
    Both mean "never cease" or "never yield."

    "Never give up. Never surrender"
    This is for a tattoo i am getting to look at every morning and remind me. It is an interpretation of the Jimmy Valvano quote "Don't give up, Don't ever give up" It is to be conjugated for a man speaking to himself in commands. An old latin teacher has suggested "Numquam Cede" as the second part of the quote- Never surrender.

    and you will find at least 4 variants of translation.

    You might be surprised that Winston Churchill said it long before Jimmy V.
