Opinion Quotes A-Z by Author 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 continue on.
Julian Assange - Media - Lies - Opinions - Bad - Geopolitics - War - Corrupt

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.
Edward Bernays - Propaganda - Sociology - People - Ideas - Opinions - Manipulation - Prejudice

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.
Edward Bernays - Masses - Social - Manipulation - Opinions - Ruler - Power

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.
Conrad Black - Self Help

I’ve 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 you’ve got to do is you’ve got to let people speak and you’ve got to listen. And that’s what the first amendment is all about. That’s what really distinguishes this country from others.
Michael Bloomberg - Freedom of Speech - Opinions - Pessimism - Understanding - Listening - America - Constitution

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.
Noam Chomsky - Smart - Freedom of Speech -

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 people's opinions..

Paulo Coelho

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.
Stephen Colbert - Facts

You have to have a passionate opinion; otherwise you sound false. You end up telling the audience jokes they’ve already heard.
Stephen Colbert - Opinions - Jokes - Passion


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.
Albert 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 to desist.
Norman Finkelstein - Israel - Palestine - Public Relations - Opinions
- Violence

They’ve (Israel) lost the battle for public opinion. They claim it’s because American Jews know too little.. I claim it’s 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 settlements.
Norman Finkelstein - Palestinian - Conflict - Israeli - America - Jewish - Opinions - Knowledge


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.
Ross Garnaut - Climate Change - Ignorance - Knowledge - Science - Opinions - Support - Wisdom


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 a meeting.
Bill Gates - Leadership - Opinions - Dumb - Ideas - Meeting

When you live for others' opinions, you are dead. I don't want to live thinking about how I'll be remembered.
Carlos Slim Helu - Opinions

The 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.
Jackie Huggins - Respect - Australia - Human Rights - People - Opinions - Indigenous

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.
Angelina Jolie - Values - World - Change - Opinions - Life - Self 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)
Carl Jung - Psychology - Contradiction - Opinions - Knowledge - Science

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.
David Koch - Politics - Responsibility - Opinions - Community

I’m 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 I’m not an expert in that, so my opinion probably doesn’t count for very much.
David Koch - America - Economy - Spending - Military - Opinions - Middle East - Iraq - Afghanistan

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.
H. L. Mencken - Evil - Religion - Ideas - Opinions

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.
Akira Mori - Family - Opinions


There are no facts, only interpretations.
Friedrich Nietzsche - Facts - Truth - Opinions

I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment. And I’ve learned quickly these past few days that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone. But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion. I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country.
