84,216.  Falstaff shall die of a sweat, unless already a’ be killed with your hard opinions.  William Shakespeare, II Henry IV V v epilogue

 

 

84,217.  Preferment goes by letter and affection,

And not by old gradation, which each second

Stood heir to th’ first.  William Shakespeare, Othello I i 35-37, Iago

 

 

84,218.  Opinion’s but a fool, that makes us scan

The outward habit for the inward man.  William Shakespeare, Pericles IX l59-60, King Simonides

 

 

98,714.  I have undertaken, you see, to write not only my life, but my opinions also; hoping and expecting that your knowledge of my character, and of what kind of a mortal I am, by the one, would give you a better relish for the other: As you proceed further with me, the slight acquaintance which is now beginning betwixt us, will grow into familiarity; and that, unless one of us is in fault, will terminate in friendship.  (Write & Opinion & Friend)  Laurence Sterne, The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentlemen

 

 

148.  It were better to have no opinion of God at all, than such an opinion, as is unworthy of him: for the one is unbelief, the other is contumely: and certainly superstition is the reproach of the deity.  (God & Opinion & Superstition)  Francis Bacon, Of Superstition

 

 

342.  Truth, in matters of religion, is simply the opinion that has survived.  (Religion & Truth & Opinion)  Oscar Wilde

 

 

6,273.  Most people are other people.  Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.  (Self & Identity & Opinion & Quotation & People)  Oscar Wilde

 

 

455.  There is, in fact, nothing about religious opinions that entitles them to any more respect than other opinions get.  On the contrary, they tend to be noticeably silly.  (Religion & Opinion)  H L Mencken

 

 

745.  You can convince anyone of anything if you just push it at them 100% of the time.  They may not believe it completely, but they will still use it to form opinions, especially if they have nothing else to draw on.  (Belief & Cults & Opinion)  Charles Manson

 

 

798.  Where there is much desire to learn, there of necessity will be much arguing, much writing, many opinions; for opinion in good men is but knowledge in the making.  (Learning & Opinion & Knowledge)  John Milton, Areopagitica 1644

 

 

975.  The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widely spread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.  (Belief & Opinion & Majority)  Bertrand Russell, Marriage and Morals

 

 

71,964.  The opinions that are held with passion are always those for which no good ground exists; indeed the passion is the measure of the holders lack of rational conviction.  Opinions in politics and religion are almost always held passionately.  (Extremism & Opinion)  Bertrand Russell

 

 

1,005.  Loyalty to a petrified opinion never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul.  (Faith & Belief & Opinion & Loyalty)  Mark Twain

 

 

2,470.  In science it often happens that scientists say, ‘You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’ and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again.  They really do it.  It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful.  But it happens every day.  I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.  (Science & Argument & Opinion & Politics & Religion)  Carl Sagan, address CSICOP conference 1987, cited J Poling ‘Do Science and the Bible Conflict?’

 

 

2,520.  There is an overwhelming body of evidence that says we are warming our planet.  But complexity allows for confusion and for alternative theories to develop.  The only solution is to look at all the evidence as a whole.  I think some extreme sceptics decide what to think first and then cherry-pick the data to support their case.  We scientists have to acknowledge we now operate in a world where point of view, not peer review, hold sway.  (Science & Climate Science & Evidence & Opinion)  Professor Sir Paul Nurse, president Royal Society, Horizon: Science Under Attack, 2011

 

 

2,649.  There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.  (Science & Opinion & Knowledge & Ignorance)  Hippocrates 

 

 

4,776.  I think women should have lots of opinions but not allowed to express them.  (Woman & Opinion)  Richard Harris, interview 1973 The Parkinson Show

 

 

4,947.  Our civil rights have no dependence upon our religious opinions more than our opinions in physics or geometry.  (Right & Opinion & Civil Liberties)  Thomas Jefferson

 

 

5,450.  When men are brought face to face with their opponents, forced to listen and learn and mend their ideas, they cease to be children and savages and begin to live like civilised men.  Then only is freedom a reality, when men may voice their opinions because they must examine their opinions.  (Freedom & Opposition & Opinion)  Walter Lippmann

 

 

5,552.  Real freedom is freedom from the opinions of others.  Above all, freedom from your opinions about yourself.  (Freedom & Opinion & Self)  Brennan Manning, The Wisdom of Tenderness

 

 

6,483.  The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die.  As well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be mind.  (Mind & Opinion)  Friedrich Nietzsche

 

 

6,545.  It is easier to put up with unpleasantness from a man of one’s own way of thinking than from one who takes an entirely different point of view.  (Think & Opinion)  Napoleon Bonaparte, letter 14th April 1807

 

 

6,705.  I happen to feel that the degree of a person’s intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting attitudes she can bring to bear on the same topic.  (Intelligence & Opinion)  Lisa Alther 

 

 

6,763.  There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.  (Knowledge & Science & Opinion & Ignorance)  Hippocrates

 

 

7,464.  For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged, by better information or fuller consideration, to change opinions, even on important subjects, which I once thought right but found to be otherwise.  (Information & Opinion)  Benjamin Franklin

 

 

7,468.  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.  (Information & Opinion)  H P Lovecraft

 

 

21,045.  You’re Irish aren’t you?  You were born with an opinion.  (GBH Films & Ireland & Opinion & IRA)  Fifty Dead Men Walking 2008 starring Jim Sturgess & Ben Kingsley & Rose McGowan & Kevin Zegers & Kris Edlund & Natalie Press & Paschal Friel et al, her to him
