Famous quotes containing the word opinion:

    BOSWELL. But what do you think of supporting a cause which you know to be bad? JOHNSON. “Sir, you do not know it to be good or bad till the Judge determines it.... It is his business to judge; and you are not to be confident in your own opinion that the cause is bad, but to say all you can for your client, and then hear the Judge’s opinion.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Three things there be in man’s opinion dear,
    Fame, many friends, and fortune’s dignities:
    False visions all, which in our sense appear,
    To sanctify desire’s idolatry.
    Fulke Greville (1554–1628)

    It is cruel for you to leave your daughter, so full of hope and resolve, to suffer the humiliations of disfranchisement she already feels so keenly, and which she will find more and more galling as she grows into the stronger and grander woman she is sure to be. If it were your son who for any cause was denied his right to have his opinion counted, you would compass sea and land to lift the ban from him.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
