There have been hundreds, if not thousands of influential characters in the history of our civilization who have stressed the importance of accepting failure in the pursuit for success. But few have articulated it in such a compelling manner as the founder of Ford Motor Company, Henry Ford.

One of the first rules of journalism is to get your facts straight before sitting down to write. Sadly, even the biggest publications fail to do that sometimes.
