Persuasion, indeed, is a kind of force.  It consists in showing a person the consequences of his actions.  It is, in a word, force applied through the mind.

-- Sir James Fitzjames Stephen (3 March 1829 - 11 March 1894), English lawyer, judge, and philosopher, Liberty, Equality, Fraternity (1873-1874) Ch. 3 : The Distinction Between the Temporal and Spiritual Power
