Indy gave up at the end, too. He let the Grail go in order to save Elsa, and then himself.
In Peacock's Eye
Indy realized the difference between passion and obsession. You have to evaluate the reasons you do what you do.
Indy went after the Ark and the Grail because of the significance of those finds. On the other hand, his friend Remy wanted to find the Peacock's Eye only to get rich.
Even in Temple of Doom
when Indy talks about fortune and glory, he sounds more sarcastic about it than anything. It's even more ironic when you consider the theory that the gem at the beginning of Temple
is the Peacock's Eye and his comments about "fortune and glory" reflect his thoughts about his old friend Remy.
