Some flow inland into large lakes (eg the Jordan into the Dead Sea), sometimes underground or even into deserts (eg The Okavango in Botswana).

I think some of rivers meet with each other (like Tawa river in narmada), sangam of ganga yamuna saraswati and some meet in lakes, like Kaliyasoth and ajnal river.
So it is very difficult to claim that all rivers meet sea in the end.

The Property of every liquid is to maintain the level.....as such the water flowing from a stream must make its way down by the force of gravitation.....and as the sea is the down most level over the earth's crust every stream taking the form of a river meets the ocean at last......
