In America everybody is of the opinion that he has no social superiors, since all men are equal, but he does not admit that he has no social inferiors, for, from the time of Jefferson onward, the doctrine that all men are equal applies only upwards, not downwards.
My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said I want a second opinion. He said okay, you're ugly too.
He that is of the opinion money will do everything may well be suspected of doing everything for money.
Nothing is more deceitful than the appearance of humility. It is often only carelessness of opinion, and sometimes an indirect boast.
You have to listen to the people who have a negative opinion as well as those who have positive opinion. Just to make sure that you are blending all these opinions in your mind before a decision is made.
The discovery of truth is prevented more effectively, not by the false appearance things present and which mislead into error, not directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice.
Opinion is the medium between knowledge and ignorance.
A little group of willful men, representing no opinion but their own, have rendered the great government of the United States helpless and contemptible.
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
People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A baby is God's opinion that life should go on.
Firstly you must always implicitly obey orders, without attempting to form any opinion of your own regarding their propriety. Secondly, you must consider every man your enemy who speaks ill of your king; and thirdly you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil.

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.
Stubborn and ardent clinging to one's opinion is the best proof of stupidity.
Michel de Montaigne

Citizenship is a tough occupation which obliges the citizen to make his own informed opinion and stand by it.
There is no such thing as public opinion. There is only published opinion.
I am disillusioned enough to know that no man's opinion on any subject is worth a damn unless backed up with enough genuine information to make him really know what he's talking about.
H. P. Lovecraft
Too often we... enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

Life is not a spectator sport. If you're going to spend your whole life in the grandstand just watching what goes on, in my opinion you're wasting your life.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
