Ten Things Tuesday- Opinions

I thought this week's Ten Things Tuesday could center around the opinion.

Not my opinions on things, but sayings or quotes about opinions.

1. And your cry-baby whiny-a**ed opinion would be...
  I have a t-shirt that says this. Don't whine ALL the time. We all know these people.

2. Opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one.
Isn't that the truth? If you don't have one, you need to see a doctor. In either case.

3. Just because you have an opinion, that doesn't make it right.
That is why it is called an opinion and not a fact. Lots of people confuse the two all the time.

4. " Freedom of opinion can only exist when the government thinks itself secure."- Bertrand Russell
In a nutshell, this is why governments crack down on their people.

5. " There is no such thing as public opinion, only published opinion." Winston Churchill
    How true. All we know about how popular something is, is from the news.

6. " Too often we...enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." John F. Kennedy
I think he was saying we don't always think things through like we should.

7. " The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: Be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge." Elbert Hubbard
Learning is a good thing and it's OK to change your mind.

8. " If you consult enough experts, you can confirm any opinion."- unknown
That's like 4 out of 5 dentists surveyed. They never said how many they asked. They just chose the ones that answered how they wanted.


9. " It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favor of vegetarianism while the wolf remains in a different opinion." W.R. Inge quotes
I think Congress and legislatures everywhere should listen to this one.

10. " I must respect the opinions of others even if I disagree with them." Herbert Henry Lehman
This is the way it should be.

  7. You know what happens when you assume, don't you? You make an ass out of you (u) and me.
    That's a pretty dumb saying.
    I assume.

    1. I know that saying. You'd swear that is the funniest thing my mom has ever heard. She has said it for years and she still laughs when she does.

    2. I say it in front of my daughter who then says, "Okay, crazy."
      She doesn't mean it.
      I assume.
