To depart is to go away: the plane was ready to depart.

To quit is informal for ‘to leave’: he quit the room. To quit your job means to resign. If you’ve been given notice to quit, you have been told you must leave your house/flat. Quit also means to stop in informal American English: quit making that noise!

To abandon means to leave in the sense of giving up: the crew abandoned the sinking ship; I’ve had to abandon the idea of becoming a farmer.

To resign has the specific sense of giving up a job: she resigned and bought a farm.
