niti, quaerere, invenire, neque cedere
I have translated your request using the commonest words for their English equivilents. Latin, however, is rich in synonyms for these, and some other choices which you might prefer are:
niti - eniti, coniti, contendere
quaerere - exquirere, petere, expetere
invenire - reperire
cedere - concedere, obsequi
There are yet others, but these accord best with the senses which you seem to intend.
In correct, 'classical' Latin, 'and not' is expressed by 'neque', not by 'et non', which latter would be employed only to emphasise a succeeding word, phrase, or clause.
