When Public Interest Cannot Be Sustained...

"There comes a time when public interest cannot be sustained in further discussion of a subject no matter how important. The people will give an administration their support two or three times and then they begin to expect results."
- Robert M. La Follette, from The political philosophy of Robert M. La Follette as revealed in his speeches and writings (The Robert M. La Follette Co., 1920), p. 293.
