This quote sounds like a proverb, but I haven't been able to track it down.

It doesnt make much sense with the word "convinced" and looks like a misquotation of the Butler quote-

"He that complies against his will
Is of his own opinion still."
~Samuel Butler (1612-1680), in Hudibras. Part iii. Canto iii. Line 547

Another version, don't know who said it:

Just because you've silenced someone doesn't mean you've converted them.

something for religious types to remember.

I believe this was an Elbert Hubbard quote. He preceded Carnegie anyway...

I believe the quote; "A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still" was first spoken by Sir Walter Raleigh. Elizabethian aristocrat, writer, sometime pirate, explorer and adventurer.
