“Never Quit”

“When things go wrong, as they sometimes will When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill… …Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.” Remember this quote stuck on your hostel room’s wall? Yes!

The best example of this scenario is political debates on national television where nobody can […]
