Opinions
1.

. . . As to self-improvement, the true Catholic mode of learning is to "prove all things," as far as we can, without sin or the danger of it, to "hold fast that which is good." Let us never be afraid of trying anything new, learnt from people of different opinions to our own. And let us never be afraid of changing our opinions. The unwillingness to go back from once declared opinion is a form of pride which haunts some powerful minds: but it is not found in great childlike geniuses. Fools may hold fast to their scanty stock through life, and we must be very cautious in drawing them from it--for where can they supply its place?

- Letters and Memories. 1843.
2.

We accumulate our opinions at an age when our understanding is at its weakest.

- Lichtenberg, Georg C.
3.

History is a voice forever sounding across the centuries the laws of right and wrong. Opinions alter, manners change, creeds rise and fall, but the moral law is written on the tablets of eternity.

- James A. Forude
4.

Non Judgment: In our world where it seems we are taught to judge everything all around and about us and we spend so much of our time doing just that, it might be wise to ask if we can judge anything. To judge anything with any degree of clarity and accuracy we would need all the information past, present and future and how it will affect all concerned to make a perfect judgment. Since no one has that skill, ability or information, you might agree, it may be unwise to judge. This idea may be hard to accept, but when you look back over your life and the judgments you made, ask yourself. How many of your judgments, when you made them, were you perfectly sure they were correct, would you want to change now with the benefit of 20 20 hindsight? Since every judgment is only an opinion based on the limited information at hand, filtered through one's personal value system, it might be safe to assume no two people will judge anything exactly the same. Even concepts of right and wrong, good or bad, good or bad morals and ethics are only opinions, for what may be good in one case may be a disaster in another.

- Sidney Madwed
5.

If you must tell me your opinions, tell me what you believe in. I have plenty of doubts of my own.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
6.

Listen, everyone is entitled to my opinion.

- Madonna
7.

It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
8.

Most people when they come to you for advice, come to have their own opinions strengthened, not corrected.

- Billings, Josh
9.

If one had to worry about one's actions in respect of other people's ideas, one might as well be buried alive in an antheap or married to an ambitious violinist. Whether that man is the prime minister, modifying his opinions to catch votes, or a bourgeois in terror lest some harmless act should be misunderstood and outrage some petty convention, that man is an inferior man and I do not want to have anything to do with him any more than I want to eat canned salmon.

- Crowley, Aleister
10.

Ah, I fancy it is just the same with most of what you call your emancipation. You have read yourself into a number of new ideas and opinions. You have got a sort of smattering of recent discoveries in various fields -- discoveries that seem to overthrow certain principles which have hitherto been held impregnable and unassailable. But all this has only been a matter of intellect, Miss West -- superficial acquisition. It has not passed into your blood.

- Ibsen, Henrik
11.

It is not best that we should all think alike; it is a difference of opinion that makes horse races.

- Twain, Mark
12.

Fight for your opinions, but do not believe that they contain the whole truth, or the only truth.

- Charles A. Dana

I don't have time to be classified as difficult, and I don't have time to care.

- Basinger, Kim

Opinions that are well rooted should grow and change like a healthy tree.

Sane and intelligent human beings are like all other human beings, and carefully and cautiously and diligently conceal their private real opinions from the world and give out fictitious ones in their stead for general consumption.

- Mark Twain
18.

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

- Oscar Wilde
19.

We should be eternally vigilant against attempts to check the expression of opinions that we loathe.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
20.

He who has an opinion of his own, but depends upon the opinion and taste of others, is a slave.
