“You have three choices: Give up, give in, or give it all you’ve got”

"You have three choices: Give up, give in, or give it all you’ve got” has been printed on many posters. “You have 3 choices in anything, give in, give up or give it all you’ve got...pick one!” was cited on Twitter on October 7, 2008.

Authorship of the saying is unknown. This gym poster is possibly one of the first uses of the saying.
