Quote by Elihu Root
Men do not fail they give up trying.
This quote means that men do not actually fail in their endeavors or goals; instead, they give up too soon and stop putting effort into achieving what they desire. It suggests that success is within reach as long as one persists and doesn't quit in the face of obstacles. It highlights the importance of perseverance and the belief that with continuous effort, one can overcome challenges and ultimately succeed in their endeavors.
Government has an obligation not to inhibit the collection and dissemination of news. Im convinced that if reporters should ever lose the right to protect the confidentiality of their sources then serious investigative reporting will simply dry up. The kind of resourceful, probing journalism that first exposed most of the serious scandals, corruption and injustice in our nations history would simply disappear. And let me tell you, reading about ones failings in the daily papers is one of the privileges of high office in this free country of ours.
