Men are swayed more by fear than by reverence.
— Aristotle

In this business, it's easy for either your heart or your head to be swayed, and I try to always stay true to who I am.
Kate Bosworth swayed quote

Don't be swayed just because they say it's public opinion. Remember, public opinion is simple what everybody else thinks.
— Unknown

The generality of men are naturally apt to be swayed by fear rather than reverence, and to refrain from evil rather because of the punishment that it brings than because of its own foulness.
— Aristotle

Nothing in oratory is more important than to win for the orator the favour of his hearer, and to have the latter so affected as to be swayed by something resembling an impulse of the spirit impetu quodam animi or emotion perturbatione, rather than by judgment or deliberation. For men decide far more problems by hate, or love, or lust, or rage, or sorrow, or joy, or hope, or fear, or illusion, or some other inward emotion aliqua permotione mentis, than by reality or authority, or any legal standard, or judicial precedent or statute.
— swayed quotation by Marcus Tullius Cicero
