You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it. —Maya Angelou

This is an awesome statement for one to never give up, surrender no matter the challenges one may encounter. People who quit are never winners.
