A Quote by William Hazlitt on defeat, driving, good, heart, individuality, kindness, miracles, order, persuasion, pride, respect, secrets, tyranny, violence, and work

Violence ever defeats its own ends. Where you cannot drive you can always persuade. A gentle word, a kind look, a good-natured smile can work wonders and accomplish miracles. There is a secret pride in every human heart that revolts at tyranny. You may order and drive an individual, but you cannot make him respect you.

William Hazlitt (1778 - 1830)
