    At some point it's time to give up. For every success there are ten failures.

    If you want to look at it from a negative standpoint, you can always make the realization that if everything comes to an end, so will our civilization and species, so will our planet and galaxy and our universe - and everything you've done will be washed away in the fiery rain of the cosmos, making every single thing you'll ever do absolutely meaningless.

    Sometimes it's good to give up when doing a project. Even if a lot of money has been invested, if something doesn't work, it won't work in the upcoming years neither (except for some projects). I've given up some projects already just because they took too much time, but I'm still having them on my PC and maybe once in my life I might go further on with them!

    I've thought about it, but my friends encouraged me to keep going because they're cool.
    Yes many times it happened with me and I switched off my and went outside . But in midnight I get upagain and think if others can do then why can't I . And you can find me online just after few hours again .

    This does remind me of a great quote from Winston Churchill:
    Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.

    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    Yeah, me too. But then I get payment from the client and that re-motivates me and makes me go crawling right back for more punishment....

    It is a love/hate thing. Hate the job, love the paycheck.
