When is it time to quit?

"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it." W.C. Fields

Knowing the nature of Mr. Fields, he may have meant this saying exactly as it came out. I, however, would like to think it really means that if it doesn’t work the first couple of times, maybe you should do it differently, or maybe it just really can’t be done, by you or anyone else.

Sometimes it is ok to admit defeat. The important thing is to move on at that point.
Or maybe it’s more like another saying. “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Albert Einstein

 Just like Cheshire. Maybe it is warm in the electric water bowl, but are you really comfortable crammed in there?
