dropping "to do something"

< Previous | Next >


If there's no sentence before the first one, Can I abbreviate the objective of the "try" ?

1. If you don’t stop trying to do something, you can do anything. Keep trying!

-> If you don’t stop trying, you can do anything. Keep trying!

    Yes, I believe you can. This is a reformulation of sentences like, "You only fail when you stop trying."

    By the way, I think a clearer form of asking the question is: "Can I delete the underlined words"?
