False attribution of quote to Jon Stuart Mill's On Liberty
Writing a paper on J.S. Mill's On Liberty. I cannot
locate the following quote anywhere in his text:
"Is the encouragement of individuality, and with it the
expansion of human happiness, best accomplished by an absolute prohibition
against all social interference in the inner sphere of each person's
My guess is this is not Mill's quote at all. Please tell me
if it is indeed Mill and where it is in the book! This is driving me mad.
Several other students also cannot find the quote. If it is NOT Mill, can you
tell me who said it? If not, that's ok, I really just need to know if Mill said
it or not in On Liberty.
