He Said That? 4/23/18

From Robert Ingersoll (1833 –1899), lawyer, Civil War veteran, political leader, and orator, “Lecture on Liberty of Man, Woman and Child”:

Our ancestors in the ages that are gone really believed that by force you could convince a man. You cannot change the conclusion of the brain by force, but I will tell you what you can do by force, and what you have done by force. You can make hypocrites by the million.
