HK's unknown quote from-How To Win Friends & Influence People
- Very good Kaye! I'm impressed! Yes, this Dale Carnegie book is
recommended reading for all Eck Leaders! I'm not surprised that
Klemp took this quote out of its context, BUT why didn't he give the
source of the quote? Perhaps the source also implies that Eckists
are being taught business/psychological manipulation techniques, and
more subtle vahana/missionary methods at bringing innocents into the
ekult. However, this is the H.I. Letter and not for the public so
why didn't he give the source? Maybe HK didn't want the H.I.s to
locate the entire quote for some reason. Any thoughts on this?
I know where that PARTIAL quote comes from!!
In this 03/2006 H.I. Letter Klemp begins with a quote from an
unknown source, "An astute observer once said, 'A man convinced
against his will is of the same opinion still.' Klemp repeats this
quote THREE times in this article.
Here's the source:
Why prove to a man he is wrong? Is that going to make him like you?
Why not let him save face? He didn't ask for your opinion. He didn't
want it. Why argue with him? You can't win an argument, because if
you lose, you lose it; and if you win it, you lose it. Why? You will
feel fine. But what about him? You have made him feel inferior, you
hurt his pride, insult his intelligence, his judgment, and his self-
respect, and he'll resent your triumph. That will make him strike
back, but it will never make him want to change his mind.**** "A man
convinced against his will is of the same opinion still."****

ME: GEE! I wonder why he left all the rest of this quote out??
Have a good one!
