This is a quote from a movie that I have used in public speaking. It was said by Katherine Hepburn's character in the movie Adam and Eve (with Spencer Tracy). Hepburn is an attorney. She is discussing a newspaper story with her secretary about a woman who struck her husband and had been charged with assault. The secretary comments that the article probably leaves out that the man came home drunk (again) and was abusive (again) and regardless of that the woman is in jail for defending herself. Hepburn responds angrily, "But how is that fair?!" The secretary says, "Hey, I don't make the rules". Hepburn responds: "Yes you do! We ALL do". I shared this with my children from time to time as they grew up, along with this quote: Silence is the voice of complicity.
