Avrahami Opinion quotes by Dave Hunt
#2. Of course not all dissenters openly proclaimed their disloyalty to Rome. There were secret heretics who had to be sought out diligently. The method devised was the Inquisition, in the opinion of Egyptian author Rollo Ahmed, "the most pitiless and ferocious institution the world has ever known" in its destruction of lives, property, morals, and human rights. Lord Acton, a Catholic, called the Inquisition "murderous" and declared that the popes "were not only murderers in the great style, but they made murder a legal basis of the Christian Church and the condition of salvation. #Quote by Dave Hunt
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Flannery O'Connor

Avrahami Opinion quotes by Dick Francis
#4. I had set myself an unattainable ideal. Such human skill I could summon wasn't enough for the job. I felt the suicidal despair of all who longed to do what they couldn't, what only a few in each century could – whether blessed or cursed in spirit. No achievement was ever finite. There was no absolute summit. No peak of Everest to plant a flag on. Success was someone else's opinion. #Quote by Dick Francis
Avrahami Opinion quotes by E.B. White
#5. Prejudice is a great time saver. You can form opinions without having to get the facts. #Quote by E.B. White
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Velupillai Prabhakaran

Avrahami Opinion quotes by Jay Parini
#7. To Western eyes and ears, Sharia law seems devoid of respect for differences of opinion or complex moral thinking. Certainly the American idea of separation between church and state is lost in Sharia-style governance. #Quote by Jay Parini
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Epictetus
#8. It is not he who gives abuse that affronts, but the view that we take of it as insulting; so that when one provokes you it is your own opinion which is provoking. #Quote by Epictetus
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Taylor Swift
#9. Maybe you lost someone you never expected you would lose. Maybe you lost yourself. That's even worse. When you have bad days that just won't let up, I just hope that you will look in the mirror and remind yourself of what you are and what you are not.
You are not your mistakes.
You are not damaged goods or money from your failed explorations.
You are not the opinion of someone who doesn't know you.
You are a product of the lessons that you've learned.
You are wiser because you went through something terrible.
And you are the person who survived a bunch of rainstorms and kept walking.
I now believe that pain makes you stronger. And now I believe that walking through a lot of rainstorms gets you clean. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#10. Among today's adept practitioners, the lie has long since lost its honest function of misrepresenting reality. Nobody believes anybody, everyone is in the know. Lies are told only to convey to someone that one has no need either of him or his good opinion. The lie, once a liberal means of communication, has today become one of the techniques of insolence enabling each individual to spread around him the glacial atmosphere in whose shelter he can thrive. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#11. She was braver than I, she always had been. I cared too much for the opinion of others, she cared not a whit. I was cautious, she was brash. I was a thinker, she was a doer. I kindled fires, she spread them. And right then and ever after, I saw how cunning #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Avrahami Opinion quotes by John Locke
#12. In all things, therefore, where we have clear evidence from our ideas, and those principles of knowledge I have above mentioned, reason is the proper judge; and revelation, though it may, in consenting with it, confirm its dictates, yet cannot in such cases invalidate its decrees: nor can we be obliged, where we have the clear and evident sentience of reason, to quit it for the contrary opinion, under a pretence that it is matter of faith: which can have no authority against the plain and clear dictates of reason. #Quote by John Locke
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Pete Morin
#13. Remember, we all make our work available in a commercial transaction, the terms of which we, ourselves, dictate. If we give it away for free, that's our decision, and there is no refuge in the lame defense, "what do you want for nothing?" The buyer does not waive his right to express his opinion."
[Thick Skin and Bad Reviews, Blog post, June 26, 2013] #Quote by Pete Morin
Avrahami Opinion quotes by James Madison
#14. As a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. #Quote by James Madison
Avrahami Opinion quotes by E.L. Doctorow
#15. Daniel: What do you think of the idea?
Sternlight: I'll tell you man, I think it's a fantastic idea. Fuck me if I'm consistent. I told your sister if she had all that bread to pass on for a bail fund or a free school or any good shit like that, I would retract everything I said about your parents. Not only that, I would actually change my opinion. I would think differently. OK?
Daniel: OK.
Sternlight: discards the poster.
Sternlight: That's the one question you shouldn't have asked.
Daniel: Maybe so.
Sternlight: And I've been pretty easy on you, too. Susan never mentioned you. Except once. She said she had a brother who was politically undeveloped. She made it sound like undescended tesicles.
Baby: Come on, Artie.
Sternlight: gets up, turns on the television squats in front of it. #Quote by E.L. Doctorow
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Mary Katharine Ham
#16. Candidates must constantly signal their social acceptability to a diverse group of consumers. Neither silence nor a lack of an opinion is an acceptable answer on any subject. And, in order to reduce the chances of losing their livelihood for transgressing, they default to shallow, safe, rehearsed, and socially approved messages. #Quote by Mary Katharine Ham
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Emile Capouya
#17. Governments will always misuse the machinery of the law as far as the state of public opinion permits. #Quote by Emile Capouya
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Gordon Getty
#18. I do not think that music keeps evolving. It evolved through Bach; since then, in my humble opinion, all the innovations added nothing. #Quote by Gordon Getty
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#19. In my opinion, the definition of soul ties is darkness in a dreadful and fearful place. Someone that is unhealthy for you, however, feeds you fear, because they know you will believe it."
~Love is respect ♥~ #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Rhoda Janzen
#20. In my opinion, sexiness comes down to three things: chemistry, sense of humor, and treatment of waitstaff at restaurants. #Quote by Rhoda Janzen
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Bertrand Russell
#21. The average man's opinions are much less foolish than they would be if he thought for himself. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Plutarch
#22. It were better to have no opinion of God at all than such a one as is unworthy of him; for the one is only belief - the other contempt. #Quote by Plutarch
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#23. The struggle for freedom is ultimately not resistance to autocrats or oligarchs but resistance to the despotism of public opinion. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Otto Weininger
#24. If it really were the case, as popular opinion has tried to establish, that the genius were separated from ordinary men by a thick wall through which no sound could penetrate, then all understanding of the efforts of genius would be denied to ordinary men, and their works would fail to make any impression on them. All hopes of progress depend on this being untrue. And it is untrue. The difference between men of genius and the others is quantitative not qualitative, of degree not of kind. #Quote by Otto Weininger
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Nick Vujicic
#25. It's a form of bullying, in my opinion, to make sure that your kid gets the best grades, the best jobs and all that sort of stuff. I just want my child to be happy. I want him to do his best and trust God in the rest, but I'm not going to bully him. #Quote by Nick Vujicic
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Baltasar Gracian
#26. You have to appear wiser and more prudent than is required by the people you are dealing with if you want to give a high opinion of yourself. #Quote by Baltasar Gracian
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Eric Schneiderman
#27. Transactional politics requires us to be pragmatic about current realities and the state of public opinion. It's all about getting the best result possible given the circumstances here and now. #Quote by Eric Schneiderman
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#28. Keep your differences if you must, but never let them be the cause of hatred and differentiation. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Avrahami Opinion quotes by M. Russell Ballard
#29. But one thing is certain: the commandments have not changed. Let there be no mistake about that. Right is still right. Wrong is still wrong, no matter how cleverly cloaked in respectability or political correctness. We believe in chastity before marriage and fidelity ever after. That standard is an absolute standard of truth. It is neither subject to public opinion polls nor dependent upon situation or circumstance. There is no need to debate it or other gospel standards. #Quote by M. Russell Ballard
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Najib Mikati
#30. In my opinion, the Hezbollah has going - they are going to discover sooner or later than in their top priority should preserve Lebanon. #Quote by Najib Mikati
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Bertrand Russell
#31. The skill of the politician consists in guessing what people can be brought to think advantageous to themselves; the skill of the experts consists in calculating what really is advantageous, provided people can be brought to think so. (The proviso is essential, because measures which arouse serious resentment are seldom advantageous, whatever merits they may have otherwise.) The power of the politician, in a democracy, depends upon his adopting the opinions which seem right to the average man. It is useless to urge that politicians ought to be high-minded enough to advocate what enlightened opinion considers good, because if they do they are swept aside for others. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Harry Oppenheimer
#32. I have always thought that the rapid economic development of South Africa would in the long run prove to be incompatible with the government's racial policies, and recent events have tended to confirm my opinion. #Quote by Harry Oppenheimer
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Charlotte McPherren
#33. Besides,I like working outdoors. Pa and the boys have always let me help with the ranch chores."
This was received with a raised eyebrow. "Indeed. How kind of them. Willow,the men in your family treat you more like a slave than the young lady you are. It's a sin, I tell you, a deplorable sin!"
Willow shrugged. "Hell...er, ah, heck, I'd rather round up cows than be stuck in the house all day. Besides, there ain't much house work with Pa and the boys gone."
"Humph! Too bad your pa didn't teach you more about the joys of being a lady."
The girl bristled. "I am a lady! I may not wear those fancy, highfalutin clothes, or walk around looking helpless, but that ain't what really makes a lady, you know."
"And what, pray tell, in your opinion, makes a lady, Willow?"
"A woman is a lady as long as she keeps her distance from horny critters of the opposite sex." She grinned proudly and declared, "I do.That makes me a lady!"
"Horny crit-" Shocked, Mrs. Brigham stared a moment, then nodded firmly. "My dear, someone needs to take you in hand, and I know my duty when I see it. Now listen to me, young lady-mind you, I use the term lightly. There's much more to being a lady than avoiding the opposite sex. For instance, ladies don't wear men's pants. Ladies don't herd cattle. And ladies don't smoke, curse, or sneak whiskey. I have it on good authority that you've done all those things and more. And, furthermore, ladies don't know the meaning of...horny!"
#Quote by Charlotte McPherren
Avrahami Opinion quotes by John Bates Clark
#34. As the work progresses the careful reader will insert mental interrogation points here and there. He will find that his interest increases as the interrogation points become more frequent, and that it culminates where they are changed to marks of positive dissent. I venture to record the opinion that the value of the work reaches a maximum in a passage that is demonstrably incorrect. #Quote by John Bates Clark
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Byron M. Roth
#35. From the perspective of inclusive fitness, unfamiliar others are potential free-riders and, out of a concern that they will be exploited by others, people reduce considerably their altruistic attitudes and behavior in a general way in more diverse communities. This loss of trust is a symptom of a breakdown in social cohesion and is surely a forerunner of the sort of ethnic conflict that is always likely to break out if allowed to do so. This is undoubtedly the reason why multicultural nation-states are forever promoting tolerance and ever more punitive sanctions for the expression of ethnic hostility, even going so far to as to discourage the expression of opinion about the reality of ethnic and racial differences. Currently these measures are directed at the host population when they express reservations about the wisdom of mass immigration, but this will surely change as it becomes ever more obvious that it is the presence of competing ethnic groups that is creating the tension and not the expressed reservations of the majority population. The real danger for modern democracies is that in their zeal to promote multicultural societies, they will be forced to resort to the means that have characterized all empires attempting to maintain their hegemony over disparate peoples. #Quote by Byron M. Roth
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Edgar Mitchell
#36. In my opinion, fundamentalist Christians are just as bad as fundamentalist Islam and, at the very core, neither religion is like that. #Quote by Edgar Mitchell
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Machado De Assis
#37. Perhaps the reader is astonished by the frankness with which I expose and emphasize my mediocrity; let him remember that frankness is the virtue most appropriate to a defunct. In life, the watchful eye of public opinion, the conflict of interests, the struggle of greed against greed oblige a man to hide his old rags, to conceal the rips and patches, to withhold from the world the revelations that he makes to his own conscience; and the greatest reward comes when a man, in so deceiving others, manages at the same time to deceive himself, for in such case he spares himself shame, which is a painful experience, and hypocrisy, which is a hideous vice. But in death, what a difference! what relief! what freedom! How glorious to throw away your cloak, to dump your spangles in a ditch, to unfold yourself, to strip off all your paint and ornaments, to confess plainly what you were and what you failed to be! For, after all, you have no neighbors, no friends, no enemies, no acquaintances, no strangers, no audience at all. The sharp and judicial eye of public opinion loses its power as soon as we enter the territory of death. I do not deny that it sometimes glances this way and examines and judges us, but we dead folk are not concerned about its judgment. You who still live, believe me, there is nothing in the world so monstrously vast as our indifference. #Quote by Machado De Assis
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Milton Friedman
#38. I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or it they try, they will shortly be out of office. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Karl Popper
#39. We all remember how many religious wars were fought for a religion of love and gentleness; how many bodies were burned alive with the genuinely kind intention of saving souls from the eternal fire of hell. Only if we give up our authoritarian attitude in the realm of opinion, only if we establish the attitude of give and take, of readiness to learn from other people, can we hope to control acts of violence inspired by piety and duty. #Quote by Karl Popper
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Criss Jami
#40. Even when the truth is in fact simple, simplicity is still relative. #Quote by Criss Jami
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#41. Arguing from facts never wins a definitive victory against skillfully presented opinion. #Quote by Albert Schweitzer
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Albert Camus
#42. Don't believe your friends when they ask you to be honest with them. All they really want is to be maintained in the good opinion they have of themselves. #Quote by Albert Camus
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Geoff Dyer
#43. In his book Real Presences, George Steiner asks us to "imagine a society in which all talk about the arts, music and literature is prohibited." In such a society there would be no more essays on whether Hamlet was mad or only pretending to be, no reviews of the latest exhibitions or novels, no profiles of writers or artists. There would be no secondary, or parasitic, discussion - let alone tertiary: commentary on commentary. We would have, instead, a "republic for writers and readers" with no cushion of professional opinion-makers to come between creators and audience. While the Sunday papers presently serve as a substitute for the experiencing of the actual exhibition or book, in Steiner's imagined republic the review pages would be turned into listings:catalogues and guides to what is about to open, be published, or be released.
What would this republic be like? Would the arts suffer from the obliteration of this ozone of comment? Certainly not, says Steiner, for each performance of a Mahler symphony is also a critique of that symphony. Unlike the reviewer, however, the performer "invests his own being in the process of interpretation." Such interpretation is automatically responsible because the performer is answerable to the work in a way that even the most scrupulous reviewer is not.
Although, most obviously, it is not only the case for drama and music; all art is also criticism. This is most clearly so when a writer or composer quotes or reworks material fro #Quote by Geoff Dyer
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Marco Rubio
#44. Obviously I don't agree with everything he [Donald Trump] says. There's a lot that we have a difference of opinion on. But we can't ignore that he's touched on some issues that people are concerned about. If you look at the statements he made this week, obviously I think he made them partially to recapture the limelight after having lost it. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Henry James
#45. Are you using me simply as a vulgar tool? Don't you care for me the least little bit? Let me suggest that for a girl in your-your ambiguous position, you are too proud, by several shades. Don't go back to Roger in a hurry! You're not the unspotted maiden you were but two short days ago. Who am I, what am I, to the people whose opinion you care for? A very low fellow, madam; and yet with me you've gone far to cast your lot. If you're not prepared to do more, you should have done less.
Nora, Nora," he went on, breaking into a vein none the less revolting for being more ardent, "I confess I don't understand you! But the more you puzzle me the more you fascinate me; and the less you like me the more I love you. What has there been between you and Lawrence? Hang me if I can understand! Are you an angel of purity, or are you the most audacious of flirts? #Quote by Henry James
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Thorstein Veblen
#46. The office of the leisure class in social evolution is to retard the movement and to conserve what is obsolescent. This proposition is by no means novel; it has long been one of the commonplaces of popular opinion. #Quote by Thorstein Veblen
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Isaac Watts
#47. Every one of his opinions appears to himself to be written with sunbeams. #Quote by Isaac Watts
Avrahami Opinion quotes by John Adams
#48. We hear very often declarations on the demoralizing tendency of war, but as much as I hate war, I cannot be of the opinion that frequent wars are so corrupting to human nature as long peaces. #Quote by John Adams
Avrahami Opinion quotes by Albert Einstein
#49. An autocratic system of coercion, in my opinion soon degenerates. For force always attract men of low morality. #Quote by Albert Einstein
