Even good opinions are worth very little unless we hold them in the broad, intelligent, and spacious way.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
America owes most of its social prejudices to the exaggerated religious opinions of the different sects which were so instrumental in establishing the colonies.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not the facts which guide the conduct of men, but their opinions about facts; which may be entirely wrong. We can only make them right by discussionMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Opinion is the main thing which does harm or good in the world. It is our false opinions that ruin us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Opinions are formed in a process of open discussion and public debate, and where no opportunity for the forming of opinions exists, there may be moods --moods of the masses and moods of individuals, the latter no less fickle and unreliable than the former --but no opinion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have often wondered how it is everyone loves himself more than the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinions of himself than the opinions of others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A constitutional statesman is in general a man of common opinions and uncommon abilities.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The liberated man is not the one who is freed in his ideal reality, his inner truth, or his transparency; he is the man who changes spaces, who circulates, who changes sex, clothes, and habits according to fashion, rather than morality, and who changes opinions not as his conscience dictates but in response to opinion polls.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The tendency of old age to the body, say the physiologists, is to form bone. It is as rare as it is pleasant to meet with an old man whose opinions are not ossified.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Call your opinions your creed, and you will change them every week. Make your creed simply and broadly out of the revelation of God, and you will keep it to the end.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men get opinions as boys learn to spell by reiteration chiefly.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When ancient opinions and rules of life are taken away, the loss cannot possibly be estimated. From that moment, we have no compass to govern us, nor can we know distinctly to what port to steer.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The public buys its opinions as it buys its meat, or takes in its milk, on the principle that it is cheaper to do this than to keep a cow. So it is, but the milk is more likely to be watered.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I want to find someone on the earth so intelligent that he welcomes opinions which he condemns.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We cling to our own point of view, as though everything depended on it. Yet our opinions have no permanence; like autumn and winter, they gradually pass away.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The man who questions opinions is wise. The man who quarrels with facts is a fool.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The world is for thousands a freak show; the images flicker past and vanish; the impressions remain flat and unconnected in the soul. Thus they are easily led by the opinions of others, are content to let their impressions be shuffled and rearranged and evaluated differently.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men who borrow their opinions can never repay their debts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If every day a man takes orders in silence from an incompetent superior, if every day he solemnly performs ritual acts which he privately finds ridiculous, if he unhesitatingly gives answers to questionnaires which are contrary to his real opinions and is prepared to deny his own self in public, if he sees no difficulty in feigning sympathy or even affection where, in fact, he feels only indifference or aversion, it still does not mean that he has entirely lost the use of one of the basic human senses, namely, the sense of humiliation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We should be eternally vigilant against attempts to check the expression of opinions that we loathe.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no greater mistake than the hasty conclusion that opinions are worthless because they are badly argued.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the fevered state of our country, no good can ever result from any attempt to set one of these fiery zealots to rights, either in fact or principle. They are determined as to the facts they will believe, and the opinions on which they will act. Get by them, therefore, as you would by an angry bull; it is not for a man of sense to dispute the road with such an animal.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our enemies come nearer the truth in the opinions they form of us than we do in our opinion of ourselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I must respect the opinions of others even if I disagree with them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We accumulate our opinions at an age when our understanding is at its weakest.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I shall never be a heretic; I may err in dispute, but I do not wish to decide anything finally; on the other hand, I am not bound by the opinions of men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
False opinions are like false money, struck first of all by guilty men and thereafter circulated by honest people who perpetuate the crime without knowing what they are doing.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We would not let ourselves be burned to death for our opinions: we are not sure enough of them for that. But perhaps for the right to have our opinions and to change them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have unprecedented conditions to deal with and novel adjustments to make -- there can be no doubt of that. We also have a great stock of scientific knowledge unknown to our grandfathers with which to operate. So novel are the conditions, so copious the knowledge, that we must undertake the arduous task of reconsidering a great part of the opinions about man and his relations to his fellow men which have been handed down to us by previous generations who lived in far other conditions and possessed far less information about the world and themselves. We have, however, first to create an unprecedented attitude of mind to cope with unprecedented conditions, and to utilize unprecedented knowledge.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The essence of the Liberal outlook lies not in what opinions are held, but in how they are held: instead of being held dogmatically, they are held tentatively, and with a consciousness that new evidence may at any moment lead to their abandonment.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is clear that thought is not free if the profession of certain opinions makes it impossible to earn a living.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Whenever, therefore, people are deceived and form opinions wide of the truth, it is clear that the error has slid into their minds through the medium of certain resemblances to that truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Conscience in most men, is but the anticipation of the opinions of others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Prejudice is a great timesaver. It enables you to form opinions without bothering to get facts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The role of the intelligence --that part of us which affirms and denies and formulates opinions is merely to submit.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The more opinions you have, the less you see.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is much to be said in favor of modern journalism. By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, it keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community. By carefully chronicling the current events of contemporary life, it shows us of what very little importance such events really are. By invariably discussing the unnecessary, it makes us understand what things are requisite for culture, and what are not.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I am right.More [07/28/2005 12:07:00]
I have opinions -- but I don't always agree with them.More [08/24/2005 12:08:00]
Actors are an insecure breed. It's hard to have your career depend upon other people's opinions of what you do.More [11/05/2005 12:11:00]
I still find it personally disappointing that people kind of go out of their way to voice their disgust or their opinions against the ways in which two people choose to love one another. I think that's really unfortunate.More [05/10/2006 12:05:00]
They all know that world so well. I ask for their opinions all the time and trust whatever they tell me about what I'm doing.More [05/16/2006 12:05:00]
“That's what interested me in the character of him. He sees things differently. He was not as connected to the community. He was a bit of an outsider, not local. It was let's coach football, take baby steps, do what we have to do. He likes to philosophize. He's got opinions on everything. He'll let me know. It's an honor to be stepping into his shoes. What he did was life inspiring things.”More [07/04/2006 12:07:00]
“The greatness of Christianity did not lie in attempted negotiations for compromise with any similar philosophical opinions in the ancient world, but in its inexorable fanaticism in preaching and fighting for its own doctrine”More [08/07/2006 12:08:00]
“Ask everyone whether they're an actor or a doctor or a teacher or whatever is entitled to his or her opinion. But unfortunately, because actors are in the public eye, whether we want it or not, sometimes our opinions carry more weight or influence than they deserve.”More [08/21/2006 12:08:00]
Being overseas at the time it all kind of happened was perfect because I had no idea that it was going to attract so much media attention and provoke these lovely people calling in and offering up their opinions and advice.More [11/14/2006 12:11:00]
Harry Callahan: Well, opinions are like assholes. Everybody has one.More [08/22/2007 12:08:00]
There is little doubt that the majority of Mr. Mill's supporters in 1865 did not know what his political opinions were, and that they voted for him simply on his reputation as a great thinker.More [01/22/2008 12:01:00]
Stagecoach Driver / Hauler:

Colonel William G. Smollett:
Good morning. Mrs. Hilton, I presume?

Mrs. Anne Hilton:

Colonel William G. Smollett:
May I be permitted to observe that this is the first house I've found in this godforsaken community that doesn't smell of cabbage.

Mrs. Anne Hilton:
Well, it does sometimes.

Colonel William G. Smollett:
I was given to understand at the office of the Purchasing Division, to which I have the misfortune to be attached, that you had a room for rent.

Mrs. Anne Hilton:
Yes, but I specified an officer. You see, my husband -

Colonel William G. Smollett:
My name is Smollett, William G., Colonel, United States Army, retired. Retired, I might add, by virtue of certain fatuous opinions held in the War Department which judge a man's usefulness neither by his experience nor his ability, but by the number of years since he was weaned.

Bridget 'Brig' Hilton:
[dog growls and barks] Soda. Soda!

Colonel William G. Smollett:
There was nothing in the information I was furnished, madam, which indicated that you had children and domestic pets.

Mrs. Anne Hilton:
Well, I'm sorry, but they go with the house.

Colonel William G. Smollett:
We won't discuss it. With your permission, madam, may we dispense with further conversation? I should like to inspect the room.

Mrs. Anne Hilton:
Certainly. Just follow me. I do hope you'll forgive me if I've been long-winded.

Colonel William G. Smollett:
Not at all, madam. Through a full, and somewhat protracted existence, I have learned to accept the natural tendency of all women to be garrulous.

Mrs. Anne Hilton:
You're very tolerant, Colonel.

Andy Hobart:
Your opinions have as much practical value as a 1939 calendar.

More [06/16/2016 01:06:42]
Hey, you know what I think?

Oh how in the hell can someone have so many opinions without ever having done anything?

Frank Hackett:
Well, the issue is: Shall we kill Howard Beale, or not? I'd like to get some more opinions on that.

Diana Christensen:
I don't see we have any options, Frank. Let's kill the son-of-a-bitch.

Station Manager Harold Ramis:
This is Harold Ramis speaking for the management of Second City Television. SCTV recognizes its responsibility to the community, and condemns the excessive use of explicit sexual material in television today. We do, however, love violence, so parental discretion _is_ advised in viewing the following program. Viewers will note, however, that the attitudes and opinions reflected in this program do not reflect the views of the management of this station, the producers of this program, the writers, the actors, or indeed, anyone in the audience. So if you're thinking of suing or phoning in complaints, don't bother. This program is produced in Argentina and then dubbed into English. Besides, if you're all that sensitive, you just don't have to watch the program! I mean you've got arms, why don't you get up and change the channel? See who's on Merv Griffin, that's about your speed, isn't it? Nothing offensive about old Merv! Take your parental disc...

[Ramis is pulled off the screen by a giant hook]

Have you ever considered any real freedoms? Freedoms from the opinion of others... even the opinions of yourself?

Using the full power of the laser core on Washington could leave us vulnerable to counter-attack!

Nonsense! There is no possible way for G.I. Joe to resist the Weather Dominator!

I will not have my opinions questioned by a penny-ante quick-change artist!

Cobra Commander:
What would you have me do with Washington, Destro? Pepper it with spitballs?

Rhiana Hidalgo:
You read lips?


Rhiana Hidalgo:
I'm sorry. I now realize I was mistaken.

Decided I don't look like a killer?

Rhiana Hidalgo:
I've decided I should keep my opinions to myself.

More [06/16/2016 01:06:42]
Sooo... we've certainly learned a lot about each other. We have no opinions on politics, religion, science, starving people, nuclear holocaust or recycling. The only thing we seem to feel strongly about is we both hate that painting behind Jay Leno.
