Opinion Quotes A-Z by Author|
It really is my opinion that media in general
are so bad that we have to question whether
the world wouldn't be better off without
them altogether. They are so distortive
to how the world actually is that the result
is.. we see wars, and we see corrupt governments
Assange - Media
No serious sociologist any longer believes
that the voice of the people expresses any
divine or specially wise and lofty idea.
The voice of the people expresses the mind
of the people, and that mind is made up
for it by the group leaders in whom it believes
and by those persons who understand the
manipulation of public opinion. It is composed
of inherited prejudices and symbols and
clichés and verbal formulas supplied
to them by the leaders.
Bernays - Propaganda
The conscious and intelligent manipulation
of the organized habits and opinions of
the masses is an important element in democratic
society. Those who manipulate this unseen
mechanism of society constitute an invisible
government which is the true ruling power
of our country.
Bernays - Masses
I do not at all have the mind of a bully..
in my mind bullies are intolerant of contrary
opinion, domineering and rather cowardly.
I would hope that none of those terms could
be fairly used in describing me.
Black - Self
Ive always wondered if people who
block each other from expressing their opinions
do so because they have so little confidence
in their own. To me, encountering an opposing
point of view is a chance to gain a deeper
understanding of the issues at stake and
develop my own point of view. But the first
thing youve got to do is youve
got to let people speak and youve
got to listen. And thats what the
first amendment is all about. Thats
what really distinguishes this country from
Bloomberg - Freedom
of Speech - Opinions
The smart way to keep people passive and
obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum
of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively
debate within that spectrum - even encourage
the more critical and dissident views. That
gives people the sense that there's free
thinking going on, while all the time the
presuppositions of the system are being
reinforced by the limits put on the range
of the debate.
Chomsky - Smart
of Speech - Opinions
The two worst strategic mistakes to make
are acting prematurely and letting an opportunity
slip; to avoid this, the warrior treats
each situation as if it were unique and
never resorts to formulae, recipes or other
I'm not a fan of facts. You see, the facts can change, but my opinion will
never change, no matter what the facts are.
Colbert - Facts
You have to have a passionate opinion; otherwise you sound false. You end
up telling the audience jokes theyve already heard.
Colbert - Opinions
Great spirits have always encountered violent
opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre
mind is incapable of understanding the man
who refuses to bow blindly to conventional
prejudices and chooses instead to express
his opinions courageously and honestly.
Einstein - True
In my opinion, the non-violent civil resistance
championed by Gandhi can work in the Occupied
Palestinian Territories. Of course, the
Israeli repression will initially be brutal,
but if we do our job here in publicizing
the reasonableness of Palestinian demands,
I think Israel can be isolated and forced
Finkelstein - Israel
Relations - Opinions
Theyve (Israel) lost the battle for
public opinion. They claim its because
American Jews know too little.. I claim
its because they know too much about
the conflict, and young liberal Jews have
difficulty defending the use of cluster
bombs in Lebanon or supporting the Israeli
Finkelstein - Palestinian
Every climate scientist has his or her own
views on some issues that differ from the
mainstream in detail. But the broad findings
of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change) have general support amongst
scientists with relevant specialist expertise.
The broad wisdom of the IPCC is strongly
contested by a small number, and a small
minority, of reputed climate scientists.
It is not contested by the large majority
of specialists, and by the leaders of the
relevant learned academies in the countries
of great scientific accomplishment.
Garnaut - Climate
Change - Ignorance
If I think something's a waste of time or
inappropriate I don't wait to point it out.
I say it right away. It's real time. So
you might hear me say 'That's the dumbest
idea I have ever heard' many times during
Gates - Leadership
When you live for others' opinions, you
are dead. I don't want to live thinking
about how I'll be remembered.
Slim Helu - Opinions
true essence of reconciliation is more than making friends with nonindigenous
people. Our motto is united Australia, one that respects the land and the heritage
of its indigenous peoples and provides justice and equity for all. I think reconciliation
is about changing the structures that govern us and trying to influence opinion
leaders in whatever way we can.
Huggins - Respect
- Human Rights
I just started to see the world as it really
is and it completely shocked me and changed
my opinion on everything.. on life and my
values and certainly my own sense of self.
Jolie - Values
Awareness - Shock
It is in applied psychology, if anywhere,
that today we should be modest and grant
validity to a number of apparently contradictory
opinions; for we are still far from having
anything like a thorough knowledge of the
human psyche, that most challenging field
of scientific enquiry. For the present we
have merely more or less plausible opinions
that defy reconciliation. (1933)
Jung - Psychology
I was taught from a young age that involvement
in the public discourse is a civic duty.
Each of us has a right.. indeed, a responsibility,
at times.. to make his or her views known
to the larger community in order to better
form it as a whole. While we may not always
get what we want, the exchange of ideas
betters the nation in the process.
Koch - Politics
Im more interested in economic issues
than how much military we need. But I think
we should gradually withdraw from the Middle
East, you know, from Afghanistan and Iraq,
so I believe in that. But Im not an
expert in that, so my opinion probably doesnt
count for very much.
Koch - America
East - Iraq
The most curious social convention of the
great age in which we live is the one to
the effect that religious opinions should
be respected. Its evil effects must be plain
enough to everyone. All it accomplishes
is (a) to throw a veil of sanctity about
ideas that violate every intellectual decency,
and (b) to make every theologian a sort
of chartered libertine. No doubt it is mainly
to blame for the appalling slowness with
which really sound notions make their way
in the world.
L. Mencken - Evil
In my family, there were Kei and Minoru
and then there were the rest. Everyone in
my family is very opinionated and everyone
tried to join the debate. But by the time
my turn came, there was nothing left to
say. I couldn't keep pace, so I looked to
do my own things.
Mori - Family
There are no facts, only interpretations.
Nietzsche - Facts
Im not a member of the permanent political
establishment. And Ive learned quickly
these past few days that if youre
not a member in good standing of the Washington
elite, then some in the media consider a
candidate unqualified for that reason alone.
But heres a little news flash for
all those reporters and commentators: Im
not going to Washington to seek their good
opinion. Im going to Washington to
serve the people of this country.
Palin - Politicians
