Hi!

I really need a translation of the phrase "Never give up" in Latin.
Meaning like never give up your dreams and ambitions, always try to achieve your goals and not give up however hard it gets.

Would be veeeeeeery veeeery thankful!!!!!

Regards!

@George,
Thank you sooooo much!!
was just wondering what's the difference between numquam and nunquam ?

Also, when looking some time ago for "never give up" translations I found some others like:
ne umquam desperaveris
ne umquam succubueris

Could you maybe tell me whats the difference in the meaning among those and nunquam/numquam cede??

Thanks a lot again!!
George

Alternate spelling. Both forms are correct. The former was more common
before the Augustan age.

Mine translation uses the imperative. The other two use a form known
as the prohibative subjunctive.

@George,
Thank You sooo much!!

I can now get my tattoo done not thinking that it might be wrong.

So, I guess using the imperative "numquam cede" is better, than prohibative subjunctive.

@brenden99,
Yes, one should consult translate.google.com -- or any stranger they meet on the Net -- before getting oneself tattooed.

Caveat emptor.

Not better, just a different way to say it.
If it were me getting the tattoo, I'd go with the shortest version.
