A quote by Abraham Lincoln, 1809 - 1865
- If you would win a man to your cause, first convince him that you are his sincere friend. Therein is a drop of honey which catches his heart, which, say what he will, is the great highroad to reason.
Abraham Lincoln - speech to the Springfield Washingtonian Temperance Society (22 February 1842), cited in Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, Vol. 1, Roy P. Basler, ed. (1953), p.273
