Fanatics are governed rather by imagination than by judgment.

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) American author

This quote was attributed to "Stowe" in the 1913 ed. of Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (itself a reprint of Webster's International Dictionary). It is referenced in quotes as an uncited aphorism in The Unjust Judge (1854).
