A Quotation Attributed to William Howard Taft

Joseph R. Conlin, The American Past: A Survey of American History, 9th ed. (Boston: Wadsworth, ©2010, 2009), p. 573:
"No tendency is quite so strong in human nature," William Howard Taft observed, "as the desire to lay down rules of conduct for other people."
Did Taft really say or write this? Conlin doesn't cite a source, and I can't find one.
