Opinion - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

People are like sheep: they follow the leader, It is the leader who has a point of view about which way they should go. Having an original point of view or angle is a novelty. Recognising its value is intelligent. Having the courage to stand up for it in tlie face of public opinion is what makes you a winner.

Paul Arden

Good art speaks for itself. That doesn’t mean you have to like it. So the next time you go to an art show, or look at anything for that matter, observe what effect it has on you and try to form your own opinion. That way you become the critic and not a mouthpiece for someone else’s opinions.

We are each entitled to our own opinion, but no one is entitled to his own facts.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Darwin`s idea of evolution by natural selection is, in my opinion, the single best idea that anybody has ever had, because in a single bold stroke it unites meaning with matter, two aspects of reality that appear to be worlds apart. On one side, we have the world of our minds and their meanings, our goals, our hopes, and our yearnings, and that most honored - and hackneyed - of all philosophical topics, the Meaning of Life. On the other side, we have galaxies ceaselessly wheeling, planets falling pointlessly into their orbits, lifeless chemical mechanisms doing what physics ordains, all without purpose or reason. Then Darwin comes along and shows us how the former arises from the latter, creating meaning as it goes, a bubble-up vision of the birth of importance to overthrow the trickle-down vision of tradition.

Daniel Dennett

Data without generalizations are useless; facts without explanatory principles are meaningless. A "theory" is not just someone's opinion or a wild guess made by some scientist. A theory is a well-supported and well-tested generalization that explains a set of observations. Science without theory is useless.

Michael Shermer

If you build a person without any bones in him he may look fair enough to the eye, but he will be limber and cannot stand up; and I consider that evidence is the bones of an opinion.

Mark Twain

I say that [if] you never take the trouble to find out which side is right or wrong you have no right to express an opinion. You are not fit to vote. You should not be allowed to vote.

Robert Tressell

Nothing exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is opinion.

Democritus

There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.

Hippocrates

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 widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

Bertrand Russell

Broad-minded is just another way of saying a fellow’s too lazy to form an opinion. 


Will Rogers

I have always strenuously supported the right of every man to his own opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies to another this right, makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.

Thomas Paine

Acceptable evidence is that which can be observed and measured in such a way that subjective opinion is minimized.

Isaac Asimov

In my opinion, those who remember the past are paralyzed by it.

Chuck Palahniuk

An old joke about behaviorists is that they don't believe in beliefs, they think that nothing can think, and in their opinion nobody has opinions.

Daniel Dennett
