Quote of the Day
Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.
People will always have an opinion, but you have to live life the way you want to. It's very easy to tell others what to do, but difficult to implement it on yourself.
The opinion which other people have of you is their problem, not yours.
Loyalty to petrified opinion never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul.
A baby is God's opinion that life should go on.
Confidence and empowerment are cousins in my opinion. Empowerment comes from within and typically it's stemmed and fostered by self-assurance. To feel empowered is to feel free and that's when people do their best work. You can't fake confidence or empowerment.
Amy Jo Martin
There is probably a perverse pride in my administration... that we were going to do the right thing, even if short-term it was unpopular. And I think anybody who's occupied this office has to remember that success is determined by an intersection in policy and politics and that you can't be neglecting of marketing and P.R. and public opinion.
This party will not take its position based on public opinion polls. We will not take a stand based on focus groups. We will not take a stand based on phone-in shows or householder surveys or any other vagaries of pubic opinion.
Stubborn and ardent clinging to one's opinion is the best proof of stupidity.
Michel de Montaigne
I tell you, in my opinion, the cornerstone of democracy is free press - that's the cornerstone.
I see it all perfectly; there are two possible situations - one can either do this or that. My honest opinion and my friendly advice is this: do it or do not do it - you will regret both.
If we went by the world's definition of who I'm supposed to be because I look weird... 'Well, surely, this guy can't have a productive life, surely, he doesn't have a sense of humor. Surely, he can't love life.' We stereotype people in this world. And so... if the world thinks you're not good enough, it's a lie, you know. Get a second opinion.
My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said I want a second opinion. He said okay, you're ugly too.
Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves; vanity, to what we would have others think of us.
Opinion is the medium between knowledge and ignorance.
The fewer the facts, the stronger the opinion.
Arnold H. Glasow
Public opinion polls are rather like children in a garden, digging things up all the time to see how they're growing.
J. B. Priestley
Science is the father of knowledge, but opinion breeds ignorance.
I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion about the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.
In my opinion, most of the great men of the past were only there for the beer - the wealth, prestige and grandeur that went with the power.
A. J. P. Taylor
Everywhere I go, I'm asked if I think the universities stifle writers. My opinion is that they don't stifle enough of them. There's many a best seller that could have been prevented by a good teacher.
He that is of the opinion money will do everything may well be suspected of doing everything for money.
I'm of the opinion that as a DJ you must always play what you love and ignore what's 'trendy' because true passion always eclipses what's fashionable. Quality is always fashionable.
People have come to me for my opinion since 'October Baby.' But, hey, look, I'm an actor who is very fortunate to be in a movie that's making wonderful noise, and hopefully helping parents and children to be a little closer. Leave me alone. I'm not talking about politics. I'm just trying to have a conversation with my own kids.
A friend should be one in whose understanding and virtue we can equally confide, and whose opinion we can value at once for its justness and its sincerity.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.

It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody.
