What if I couldn't handle people's opinions of me? I know that shouldn't dictate a person's degree of peace or happiness in life, but the problem is, I chose a business saturated in judgment. -Chris Evans

I don't let anyone's insecurities, emotions, or opinions bother me. I know that if I am happy, that's all that matters to me. -Demi Lovato

It's funny, because I'm a man of strong opinions and when I make one, I stand by it even if it starts to appear incorrect to me after a while. -Danny Bonaduce

I've seldom minded other people's opinions, but the other side of that coin is that I've seldom been interested by them, um their opinions about me I mean. -Tom Stoppard

I think Daily Kos is a really great example of where it's really worked in terms of putting the opinions of a larger group of people forward. And Kos has obviously had a huge impact on politics. -John Byrne

I give opinions, not advice. -Lou Holtz

When I was 8 years old, it mattered what my favorite singer said and wore and expressed opinions about. -Taylor Swift

I certainly respect other people's opinions, but I would not vote for a woman to be the pastor of a church. -Charles Stanley

I know I'm not supposed to have any opinions about politics, because I'm famous. -Cher

Back, you know, a few generations ago, people didn't have a way to share information and express their opinions efficiently to a lot of people. But now they do. Right now, with social networks and other tools on the Internet, all of these 500 million people have a way to say what they're thinking and have their voice be heard. -Mark Zuckerberg

Due to the fact that I experienced personally the situation of a political prisoner, I have an historical commitment to all those that were or are prisoners just because they expressed their views, their public opinion, their own opinions. -Dilma Rousseff

Look, people are allowed their own opinions and they don't always coincide with yours. As an artist you just have to keep plugging on. -Paul McCartney

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, which people don't seem to be shy about expressing. -Jamie Moyer

I just have my characters say my controversial opinions and then hide behind them. -Mindy Kaling

I do not believe that artists or actors and people should be out there like voicing their full-blown opinions on politics because, let's face it, at the end of the day, I'm not that smart of a guy. -Kid Rock

We meet aliens every day who have something to give us. They come in the form of people with different opinions. -William Shatner

Yeah, I think of what I do as a work of journalism. It's more like the op-ed page, though. These are my opinions. My point of view. The opinions are mine and I let you make up your own mind. -Michael Moore

My dad, he is such a soft man. Even if he has these opinions about my boyfriends, he will be the sweetest guy. He will make you feel like you're fascinating and awesome, even if he doesn't like you that much. -Amanda Seyfried

What's really interesting about actors, is that we all have opinions on how people's careers look, but I think you never have any idea of your own, or what other people think of you. -Eddie Redmayne

To be able to hold all four majors – the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open, PGA – all concurrently I think is the Grand Slam. But a lot of people have a different opinions on that. People think you have to win it in the same calendar year. -Tiger Woods

I do think, however, that there's a very diverse point of view in the African-American community. There's a lot of different voices that need to be heard. I don't claim and pretend to know the thoughts and opinions and ideas of all African-Americans. -J. C. Watts

Oh, I will always be honest with my music. The records are black boxes for me. Like if you want to know who I am, my views, my perspective, things I love, things I hate, my convictions, my anthems. I've never let people's opinions affect the way I write. -Katy Perry

I don't listen to people's opinions. I have people around me who I can trust, but most of all I listen to myself. -Mary J. Blige

I think journalists have the right to their opinions but I think their opinions should be based on history and what they see, not what they feel, how long they've been waiting or whether it's raining or it's snowing or whatever. -Marc Jacobs

When you're part of a pop phenomenon, you have so many opinions shoved down your throat. -Christina Aguilera

I always had a struggle, which I still do, when you're playing a character and it's not necessarily your morals or your values. You're playing a character, but the way the media will sometimes ask you if these are your opinions, you know – they make you responsible for that, and I take issue with it because I don't believe in censorship. -Katey Sagal

I'm an easy target because of my political opinions. -Sean Connery

People's opinions don't interfere with me. Ageing gracefully is supposed to mean trying not to hide time passing and just looking a wreck. That's what they call ageing gracefully. You know? -Jeanne Moreau

At an age when most youngsters are preparing for their GCSEs, I was suddenly a jet-setter, briefly the toast of Hollywood and London's West End. My immature wishes and naive opinions were treated with respect. -Jack Wild

The reason I don't tweet as much as I used to, is because I'm sick of all the useless opinions and hate that I get daily. Goodbye Twitter. -Zayn Malik

Chinese citizens have never had the right to really express their opinions; in the constitution it says you can, but in the real world it is more dangerous. In the west people think it's a right they're born with. Here it's a right given by the government, and one that's not really practised. -Ai Weiwei

As a person, I was born to give out my opinions. By giving out my opinions, I realize who I am. As long as I can communicate, I'm not so lonely. If I cannot travel, or do art, or have company, if they take away all my belongings, it doesn't matter at all. -Ai Weiwei

Now the British are coming. I think Cameron should ask the Chinese government not to make people 'disappear' or to jail them merely because they have different opinions. -Ai Weiwei

I like to come to the set with very strong ideas and strong opinions about how to do things. And I like also dealing with somebody who's like that. -Philip Seymour Hoffman

Most people who are activists and are concerned about issues get their information from sources which reinforce their opinions and give them the facts that they want to hear. -Barney Frank

I emphasize teachers because they are largely left out of the debate. None of the bombastic reports that come from Washington and think tanks telling us what needs to be 'fixed' – I hate such a mechanistic word, as if our schools were automobile engines – ever asks the opinions of teachers. -Jonathan Kozol

I would have strong opinions and be prepared to argue my case, but if you talk to my colleagues, I think you'd find they consider me the jokester, the informal mayor of the West Wing. -Karl Rove

I keep lot of my opinions to myself. -Lee Trevino

I definitely have my opinions that I'm very vocal about and I'm not afraid to put them out there. -Adam Lambert

I'm entitled to my political opinions, and I get to vote because I'm an American. -David Mamet

If you're writing an opinion piece, it's your job to write your opinion. If, on the other hand, you wrote a novel, as Virginia Woolf tells us, it would be inappropriate if you let your novel be influenced by your political opinions. -David Mamet

I have my own opinions, but my songs don't share them. -Shania Twain

I'm an individual, and I have opinions. -Shia LaBeouf

I like being involved in the lighter side of journalism because it serves a purpose, and it's fun. And I can keep my opinions off camera if I want. -Eleanor Mondale

Now, if you are like me – if you are like practically anybody in America – then you probably hold some negative opinions about the French, based upon movies, rumors, recent headlines, unfortunate run-ins with Parisian waiters, or… you know… all that unpleasantness surrounding the Vichy regime. -Elizabeth Gilbert

I try to read all news sources – not just CNN or FOX, but worldwide papers and journals, to get opinions from every end of the spectrum – and then I like to try to find out the cut and dried facts – and go from there. -Eric Stoltz

I am so anti-people's opinions when I'm making a record, but when it's finished and I put it out there, I hope somebody likes it. -Gary Allan

When you take other people's opinions, you end up flailing and you have no center. -Gary Allan

One thing I learned about people is that they love to give their opinions about things. -Katharine McPhee

I do not think that it is right for me to start giving opinions about the human rights situation of any country, including Gambia, except when those crimes translate into the crimes that I have to investigate. -Fatou Bensouda

No one knows anything about economics. It's the great lie of the economists. By contrast in football people might have contrasting opinions, each of which has some validity. But the economists always speak in conditionals – what a mess. -Vicente del Bosque

I know I'm not a bully and everybody has their opinions and that's fine with me. -NeNe Leakes

I talk, watch TV, spout opinions, schmooze, negotiate, talk some more, play games, and have a little cocktail. -Andy Cohen

I like critics with strong opinions. -Chuck Eddy

I have to just worry about my own opinion and the opinions of the people I'm working with and people who are close to me. -Emily Browning

When I criticize Joseph Beuys or Francis Bacon, nobody calls those opinions anti-male. Putting female artists or their subject matter off-limits is itself sexist and limiting. -Jerry Saltz

Poor Georgia O'Keeffe. Death didn't soften the opinions of the art world toward her paintings. -Jerry Saltz

Everyone goes to the same exhibitions and the same parties, stays in the same handful of hotels, eats at the same no-star restaurants, and has almost the same opinions. I adore the art world, but this is copycat behavior in a sphere that prides itself on independent thinking. -Jerry Saltz

We're all entitled to opinions about how art institutions should behave, and entitled to voicing those opinions through whatever means available to us. We're also allowed to change or modify our opinions. -Jerry Saltz

I think that girls are always expected to have opinions about each other, and maybe I don't have an opinion about some things, you know? -Robyn

Of course there are always exceptions, but opinions are not to be feared. -Joseph Kosinski

I think this Occupy Wall Street thing is great. I think that is a good thing and that people need to stand up, voice their opinions, and be heard. -Simon Baker

Hawaii is a special place because we have a very diverse population there, who are very respectful and tolerant of those who have differing opinions and different views. -Tulsi Gabbard

I go into any movie that's historical fiction thinking, 'OK, I'm here to watch a work of art, something delivering a series of opinions, and if it's a good work of art, these opinions become so deeply embedded in complexity and richness that I won't even be bothered by the opinions. I'll make my own mind up.' -Tony Kushner

My opinions of which of my works are good are vastly different than other people's. There is one that I'm obsessed with but I swear… no one else has ever even commented on it. So I'm a bit shy to draw attention to it. -Jemima Kirke

We have all loved a guy we know has issues. Despite popular opinions, until we give it a final try, the relationship will always be in the 'what if' stage. -Patti Stanger

But I'm very careful with opinions because I never know what the truth is. When I read what the press says about me, I don't really believe what it says about other people. -Carla Bruni

I'm honest about expressing my opinions. At the same time, I'm diplomatic in how I do critique things if I have a negative response. -Tim Gunn

I'm really not interested in other people's opinions, because I think frankly most of those opinions are either misinformed and adding to this endless ball of hot air we have in our society where everyone thinks their opinion is valuable and sacred and what counts. -H. G. Bissinger

I don't mind expressing my opinions and speaking out against injustice. I would be doing this even if I wasn't a writer. I grew up in a household that believed in social justice. I have always understood myself as having an obligation to stand on the side of the silenced, the oppressed, and the mistreated. -Tayari Jones

Radical transparency has an enormous impact on our personal lives. We can no longer share thoughts, quips, photos or personal opinions anywhere on the web without being mindful that they may turn up where we least expect it (notably job interviews, divorce proceedings or public media). -Simon Mainwaring

I enjoy getting an artist at the beginning stages, and then I'm able to pull out something that is so pure and actually create their individual style. From how they pick up the microphone, to how to look on the stage, to their dance steps, to their talk, their opinions, to what they wear, so it really gets to be developed from the beginning. -Laurieann Gibson

I'm intrigued by films that have a singular vision behind them. A lot of studio movies have ten writers by the time they're done. You have a movie testing 200 times, making adjustments according to various people's opinions. It's difficult to have an undistilled vision. -Carla Gugino

I never ask boys' opinions on clothes, ever. I really think, unless you think the guy has style, don't ask. So I only ask my girl friends. I don't trust guys' opinions on style! -Emma Roberts

I try not to have too many opinions; I just marvel at the world we live in. -Paula Patton

You can't take people's opinions personally. Usually what people say about it is a reflection of them own issues. -Terrence J

If novels and stories are bulletins from the progressive states of ignorance a writer passes through over the years, observations and opinions about horses are all the more so, since horses are more mysterious than life and harder to understand. -Jane Smiley

People may have their opinions about Senator Helms, but he was highly effective and he took care of his constituency. I learned all those lessons from him, and I bring a great deal to the table because of that. -David Rouzer

When you're a writer, you hear your internal critic, and that's really hard to get over. And then sometimes you hear critiques from classmates and stuff. But when a book comes out, it's just hundreds of opinions and you have to learn to separate out the ones you want to listen to or figure out many you want to listen to. -Veronica Roth

I always appreciate people's opinions, but sometimes I have to take a step back and remember why I'm writing and what I want to do with it. Shutting out the voices is difficult but it's been good for me. -Veronica Roth

There are some people whose opinion I value and respect and it would be very bothersome if I forfeited their respect. But the general public? I'm not preoccupied with the opinions of others. -Conrad Black

The picture of Mother Teresa that I remember from my childhood is of a short, sari-wearing woman scurrying down a red gravel path between manicured lawns. She would have in tow one or two slower-footed, sari-clad young Indian nuns. We thought her a freak. Probably we'd picked up on unvoiced opinions of our Loreto nuns. -Bharati Mukherjee

I didn't go to a conservatoire, and I have certain low opinions of certain aspects of the conservatory experience. -Mark Morris

I do think that people get really emotionally involved in the TV shows that they love and I think that is fantastic. Of course they are going to have opinions. The other thing is that people project onto their television shows. They see a character and layer on many traits that are actually their own or their idea of what that character is. -Lisa Edelstein

Bad religion is arrogant, self-righteous, dogmatic and intolerant. And so is bad science. But unlike religious fundamentalists, scientific fundamentalists do not realize that their opinions are based on faith. They think they know the truth. -Rupert Sheldrake

The only people whose opinions I worry about are my wife, my children, and my employees. -Alan Sugar

None of us are claiming that the statistical analysts understand the game of football as well as the football coaches do, or that our analysis should take precedence over the informed opinions of experts. I'm not saying that at all. -Bill James

I don't think writing or co-writing my songs makes me a better singer, but I haven't really got an excuse not to do it as I've got too many opinions! -Sophie Ellis-Bextor

I've learned that no matter what I do, people are going to have their opinions. -Tila Tequila

I strive for perfection, but I'm not perfect. But what I can say is my morals are totally different than any other 24-year-old rapper my age now. I look at life totally different. A whole other aspect. I have different views and morals on life in general. And opinions. -ASAP Rocky

But that's the problem with playing new music sometimes before the record comes out: You have a bunch of yayhoots with opinions. -Jake Owen

People sometimes think of 'queen' as a title that's shrouded with protocol and formality, and for that reason sometimes people are not easily saying what they want to say. They're reluctant to express their opinions, and I kind of find that frustrating because I want to know what people really, really think. -Queen Rania of Jordan

Everybody is going to have an opinion on you; not everyone is going to like you. You can't live your life based on other people's opinions of you or let that change what you do or how you feel about yourself, because then you're not living. -Rumer Willis

Ever since the arrival of printing – thought to be the invention of the devil because it would put false opinions into people's minds – people have been arguing that new technology would have disastrous consequences for language. -David Crystal

I have no time for specialized concerns, working themes or variations that lead to mastery… I like the indefinite, the boundless; I like continual uncertainty. Other qualities may be more conducive to achievement, publicity, success; but they are all outworn – as outworn as ideologies, opinions, concepts and names for things. -Gerhard Richter

I have opinions on everything. I'm a stubborn old mule. The biggest problem is keeping my mouth shut. -Mika

I don't even give my scripts to friends because I just feel it's, like, I don't need one more set of opinions. -Mike White

Actors, I think, are all the same. Both Korean actors and American actors are all very sensitive people, and they are all curious to know what the director thinks of them and how they are evaluated, and they try to satisfy the director. And they like it if you listen carefully to their opinions and accept them. -Park Chan-wook

In a nutshell though, it's just all about opening up to the people that really care about my career and really listening to everybody who is listening to me. It's just made me stronger, to really be able to open up that door and listen to everybody else's opinions. -Raekwon

There's a fine line between saying, 'You can't tell me what I can and can't do,' and taking on board people's opinions. -Cassie Ventura

I'm steeped in the news because I enjoy the news – I like reading papers, I like reading the blogs, I love talking to newsmakers and pundits, for that matter, about their opinions. I'm an information gatherer by nature, so that's what attracted me about this industry. -Megyn Kelly

If you write a bunch of different characters with a bunch of different opinions, you end up with these long scenes of everyone standing around talking. -Michael Arndt

At the end of the day, people have the right to have opinions. I have the right to have an opinion. And I have the right to say what I want on my music 'cause it's my music. If you don't like it, don't click on it, don't download it. -Tyga

I don't read reviews and I don't know what to do with opinions, so I just lose them. They take up space, they become a process of manufacturing a persona, which I want to avoid. -Anne Carson

Anyone who has a dog knows that they have some very deep thoughts, that they have moods and emotions, they get their feelings hurt. It's not a far reach to give them opinions and values and long-term desires. -Garth Stein

We all have our opinions. But I suspect that writers are actually less worth heeding, because they regard themselves as so uniquely important, so culturally sensitive. -Simon Hoggart

I think the great thing about grandparents is seeing another home, realising that people you love can have different priorities, different diversions, different opinions and lead quite different lives from the ones you see every day, and that is immensely valuable. -Simon Hoggart

Nebraskans have very strong opinions, but we sit down around a table and we solve our problems. -Dave Heineman

Writers have opinions – that, in part, is why they write. Therefore they have strong likes and dislikes. -Frank Delaney

Silence has been destroyed, but also the idea that it's important to learn how another person thinks, to enter the mind of another person. The whole idea of empathy is gone. We are now part of this giant machine where every second we have to take out a device and contribute our thoughts and opinions. -Gary Shteyngart

Most fears of rejection rest on the desire for approval from other people. Don't base your self-esteem on their opinions. -Harvey Mackay

I don't fixate on other people's opinions of my body. -Gabourey Sidibe

You know, you don't have to have permanent opinions. You can think, every morning, 'I love the world' and go to bed every night thinking, 'I hate the world.' -Michel Houellebecq

I have no interest in trying to manipulate people's emotions or opinions. -Sarah Kane

I have a really big mouth, I have a lot of opinions and I will be heard. -Kimora Lee Simmons

If you agree with a critic, you admire him or her. If you disagree, you despise them. We all feel a great need to be confirmed in our opinions. -Ben Brantley

The words of Christ are of more worth than the opinions of all the physicians in the universe. -Ellen G. White

Sometimes it occurs to me that the job of a serious cultural critic mostly consists in telling the generality of people that their opinions – on films, on books, on all manner of widgets, gadgets and even the latest electronic fidgets – simply aren't up to scratch. -Will Self

I'm a sheep when it comes to opinions; I will change my mind and jump on the bandwagon. -Sharon Horgan

Stand-up for me is just my opinions on things, so it wouldn't be as fun translated into a sketch. Nor would a sketch be as fun if it were me standing there saying it. -John Mulaney

If people love what I do, that's fantastic. And there's always going to be people who don't, and if I focus on that, then it'll destroy me. I have to just worry about my own opinion and the opinions of the people I'm working with and people who are close to me. Otherwise, it'll drive me crazy. -Emily Browning

One of the main ways that leadership stays in power is by, in various ways, convincing people that they should just let those who are in government govern: 'Trust us. Trust me. Just let us take care of things. Stay out of it.' Your opinions don't really matter. You are isolated. You are insignificant. -Viggo Mortensen

I like Betsy Ross as a model, too, the quilting bee, sitting around with your friends making art, asking what they think, so that you get the benefit of everyone's opinions and so it's not just about you in your you-dom. -Kiki Smith

Martyrdom is evidence only of a man's honesty – it is no evidence that he is not mistaken. Men have suffered martyrdom for all sorts of opinions in politics and in religion; yet they could not therefore have all been in the right; although they could give no stronger evidence that they believed themselves in the right. -Lysander Spooner

Now it is clear, that if the government can exclude, on account either of their opinions or feelings, any persons thus drawn by lot, the trial is no longer a trial by 'the country,' but only by a portion of the country. -Lysander Spooner

It's too hard to present an opinion on something that's not true to who you are. It's much easier to base opinions and debates off of fact and your true heart on things. To me that just comes quite naturally, and it's also about being open to what the debate is about and hearing the other side. -Elisabeth Hasselbeck

Twitter's a funny one. I mean, it's good in some respects, but I can't stand it in other respects. You know there are too many opinions, people get opinions mixed up, and people get being rude mixed up with 'that's my opinion.' -Dionne Bromfield

A city is a state – of mind, of taste, of opportunity. A city is a marketplace – where ideas are traded, opinions clash and eternal conflict may produce eternal truths. -Herb Caen

The primary task of a useful teacher is to teach his students to recognize 'inconvenient' facts – I mean facts that are inconvenient for their party opinions. -Max Weber

I don't shy away from any questions. I'm not scared of any question. I'll give you an answer. A lot of people are scared of having actual opinions out there. People are so scared of criticism… I'm not scared of people disliking me. -Ronda Rousey

To me, a critic is some loser who has no idea… someone with an opinion. We all have opinions. No offense, but what makes them dictate what is cool and what is not. -Vanilla Ice

Because you're a crime writer you're asked to have a point of view on a lot of things, and I'm uncomfortable having public opinions on things that are not my professional area. -Asa Larsson

I follow politics in a big way, and always have since I was a kid. I've got opinions, but they're opinions on both sides – not just anti-Republican, which is a real popular thing for a rap artist to do. If you dis Republicans, nobody will get mad. I think the two-party system sucks. It's absolutely ignorant. -Sir Mix-a-Lot

I have a mentor. I have… guides. I have a lot of guides. Not a lot, but people whose opinions I really respect and who I will turn to. -Jake Gyllenhaal

What I really enjoy about writing for orchestras is realizing that – and it's kind of self-evident – but the fact that they are 48 individuals. It's not, you know, a preset on a keyboard. It's all these people who have opinions and who are making decisions about how to play. -Jonny Greenwood

I was never looking to be popular. The trade-off for me in seeking other people's opinions is the potential to help that you get in the media. And we don't always do that, but when we do, it's a beautiful thing. -Chris Cuomo

I'm obsessed with politics, and I talk about it any chance I can get. I have strong opinions about how the world should be run. -Moby

When you're making a film, there are so many people involved that you get opinions and notes from people and you don't even know who they are. I find that quite difficult and it wears you down. -Nick Cave

In my life, I've never really listened to when people start forming opinions on how you should be doing things. -Sam Taylor-Johnson

Rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love. -Neil Patrick Harris

I feel connected to my generation through the music, but I also fear for us. We're in a very self-destructive state where we're addicted to outside opinions and we all feel like we have fans. -Drake

As an artist, you have to maintain focus and eliminate the distraction of second-guessing yourself based on the opinions of others. -Dwight Yoakam

I have a very strong opinions about health and our responsibility to our own health, and I will always say what I feel. -Melissa Etheridge

The corporate media is there to push the agenda of the sponsors, and many of those sponsors are weapons manufacturers. So it stands to reason that you won't get a diversity of opinions on television. -Michael Franti

To the extent I am known, I think I am known as a person who expresses his opinion freely about things – and I was sensitive to the possibility that if I was seen taking money for saying nice things about a product, my comments and choices and opinions would become, understandably, suspect. -Anthony Bourdain

I carry a small sheet of paper in my wallet that has written on it the names of people whose opinions of me matter. To be on that list, you have to love me for my strengths and struggles. -Brene Brown

If you listen to everybody's opinions, I mean, I always say I'd be digging a ditch on the side of the road now if I had listened to what everybody told me what to do. You know, you have to follow your heart, you have to. -Brian Setzer

I don't think a system or a government should fear critical opinions or views. Only by heeding those critical views would it be possible for us to further improve our work and make further progress. -Wen Jiabao

It's no good being too easily swayed by people's opinions. You have to believe in yourself. -Donatella Versace

The term 'alpha female' originated in my field of animal behavior, but has acquired new meaning. It refers to women who are in charge, for example, by flirting and dating on their own terms. It is also used maliciously for a loud-mouthed, controlling woman who has no patience with deviating opinions. -Frans de Waal

A lot of people who claim they're political comedians are just comedians who have opinions. But they stop being funny the minute they give their opinions. -Gilbert Gottfried

Our enmity toward God takes on many labels, such as rebellion, hard-heartedness, stiff-neckedness, unrepentant, puffed up, easily offended, and sign seekers. The proud wish God would agree with them. They aren't interested in changing their opinions to agree with God's. -Ezra Taft Benson

The proud make every man their adversary by pitting their intellects, opinions, works, wealth, talents, or any other worldly measuring device against others. -Ezra Taft Benson

I like being on a set where you can make decisions and everything is involved and are happy to work together to make the best work. For me, it's all about making the best work and creative people working together and all being respected and all having their opinions of what gives it the best quality is important. -Aneurin Barnard

I've been offered political shows before, and I don't know anything about politics and I feel uncomfortable making political opinions – there's consequences to them. I often think I'm wrong, so I really don't like getting in political or religious discussions because of the giant possibility that I might be wrong. -Norm MacDonald

Architects feel empowered to give opinions about politics and sociology and philosophy without knowing much about it. Kind of in the same way that they think they can design furniture or fashion or utensils for dining. -Rafael Vinoly

I consider myself true, which, I know, some people look at as radical, but I enjoy the normalcies of life. I'm not out there trying to transform things, but somehow, by being easy to talk to, and easy to look at, and on a mainstream TV show, I think that I'm helping the public's opinions about transgendered people to change, slowly. -Candis Cayne

Doing 'All Good Things' really felt like I was acting for myself rather than anyone else. It gave me a freedom I'd never had before, or knew I had, to do whatever I want to, and to argue my opinions and not just feel like the cute girl on set or the girl in a boy's club. I figured out how I could be both. And it's been different ever since. -Kirsten Dunst

I don't like people who don't have opinions. -David Koechner

I'm very conscious of other people's opinions and of people not liking me. -Jack Whitehall

I had a great acting teacher in high school. But I didn't like acting because it took too many people to get the job done. You have to talk to too many people and listen to others' opinions. With music, you get a few friends together and just make it. -Hugh Dillon

I can and do aspire to be greater than the sum total of my experiences, but I accept my limitations. I willingly accept that we who judge must not deny the differences resulting from experience and heritage but attempt, as the Supreme Court suggests, continuously to judge when those opinions, sympathies and prejudices are appropriate. -Sonia Sotomayor

Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun. -Don Miguel Ruiz

I think the further away you get from completing a book, the more responses you see to it from readers, the more your own tastes and opinions shift and the more you start to see things you could have written differently in the detail, or done differently on the broader scale of plot and character. -Joe Abercrombie

The more people I reach, the more people there are that have opinions about me. Not everyone loves me, but I have to be okay no matter what they think about me. -Joyce Meyer

Every man, every woman who has to take up the service of government, must ask themselves two questions: 'Do I love my people in order to serve them better? Am I humble and do I listen to everybody, to diverse opinions in order to choose the best path?' If you don't ask those questions, your governance will not be good. -Pope Francis

What is important for me is that the people who know me for real know Mario how he really is. People who don't know me, they read newspapers and they watch TV. TV is made to give a lot of opinions… so I can't show the real Mario to everybody. -Mario Balotelli

The older I get, the less I know. By that I mean the less I am sure of. I view people with strong opinions on the big stuff with distrust. I don't think we should have certain certainties on faith and politics; I think we should be open-minded. -Pam Ferris

The worst thing that can happen is if you're stuck within a bubble and you think that is what life is all about. It's great to see other people and hear from people of different ages and opinions. -Alber Elbaz

Over the years, I've had about 80 stitches in my head and face from football incidents and bar incidents, so I have lots of scars. I don't think I look intimidating, but I'm sure other people have their opinions. -Vinnie Jones

I like to have strong opinions with nothing to back them up with besides my primal sincerity. I like sincerity. I lack sincerity. -Kurt Cobain

I'm so lucky to have been raised the way I have, because my parents believed that everyone had the right to their own feelings, opinions, and existence; as long as they weren't harming others, you had to defend those rights. -George Clooney

I think the reason why a lot of young people are such screw ups… is oftentimes they didn't have the luxury I had of forming important relationships and opinions and life experiences before having success. -George Clooney

On a very basic level, many people think celebrities have too much already, so we shouldn't be entitled to our political opinions. -Barbra Streisand

We don't need to share the same opinions as others, but we need to be respectful. -Taylor Swift

'Honesty' in social life is often used as a cover for rudeness. But there is quite a difference between being candid in what you're talking about, and people voicing their insulting opinions under the name of honesty. -Judith Martin

If you gather a lot of stuff, then you write it, write in scenes with dialogue. Somewhere in the middle, rising from all this research like strong metal towers, is your opinions. -Jimmy Breslin

Magazines and opinions of you and stuff like that, those will change, but your opinion of yourself does not have to based on what other people say. So I just learned that my inner voice has to be louder than their outside voice. -Jennifer Love Hewitt

It sounds funny, but I always try to keep an open mind about what I'm writing about. Sometimes I squeak my opinions in there, but generally I don't. I try to be objective about things that I'm writing about. -John Mellencamp

You might not like that Facebook shares your political opinions with Politico, but are you really going to delete all the photos, all the posts, all the connections – the presence you've spent years establishing on the world's dominant social network? -Al Franken

It's hard to have that debate around secret programs authorized by secret legal opinions issued by a secret court. Actually, it's impossible to have that debate. -Al Franken

I don't have to muzzle myself when I'm a civilian. When you're a governor, you kind of have to do it, because you represent the whole state. You have to leave your personal opinions to yourself a lot. I learned that. -Jesse Ventura

I love doing stand-up. It's so self-contained – you go there, you do it, you go home – but with telly, there are too many people involved with it with opinions. You have a product, and everyone wants to change it. -Jo Brand

Television provokes strong opinions, and sometimes we try a bit too hard to appeal to everyone. -Jo Brand

Our most noted satirists are true columnists, and their opinions can be worth more than any well-documented expose. -Umberto Eco

We are in a culture where it's so easy to just turn things off that you don't like. And I think that doesn't make you a well-rounded person or artist. You have to be able to take the good with the bad and have opinions on things! -Mandy Moore

If I start mining for opinions on hundreds of websites that have fan forums, I'll be totally distorted in my view of myself. I'll lose myself in all that. -Geddy Lee

I never minded giving my opinions. They are just opinions, and I had studied music and I had strong feelings. I was happy for my opinions to join all the other opinions. But you have to be prepared for what comes back, especially if you don't agree with the dominant mythology. -Wynton Marsalis

I try to be objective about technology. Agnostic, in a sense. Whatever personal opinions I form tend to have more to do with what we find to do with the new thing. -William Gibson

My perspective comes in part from being a New York black lady, in part from being an engineer. I know I'm smart and have opinions worth being heard. -Ursula Burns

Our feelings of separation from God will diminish as we become more childlike before Him. That is not easy in a world where the opinions of other human beings can have such an effect on our motives. But it will help us recognize this truth: God is close to us and aware of us and never hides from His faithful children. -Henry B. Eyring

How you present yourself is nobody's business but your own. The stylists have an opinion. The hair people have an opinion. The fans and the management have opinions. Ultimately, you have to trust that you are the safe-keeper of yourself. -Shirley Manson

Fundamentally, I do agree, certainly, people must be allowed to express their own opinions freely. Freedom is part of the essential rights of all nations. -Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

In the end, I do have a group of friends and teachers whose opinions I respect, and so I guess I just have to be content with their feedback. -James Franco

The records are black boxes for me. Like, if you want to know who I am, my views, my perspective, things I love, things I hate, my convictions, my anthems. I've never let people's opinions affect the way I write. -Katy Perry

My parents were early adopters, and I've been online since a rather young age. You should regard anything from 2001 or earlier as having been written by a different person who also happens to be named 'Eliezer Yudkowsky.' I do not share his opinions. -Eliezer Yudkowsky

I've had strong opinions probably since I was born. It makes you unpopular, but what can you do? -James D. Watson

I think that if you were to probe a lot of people's religious opinions, they would not be as religious as the numbers would suggest. -Steven Pinker

'Moral police' is my new word. I am very against the media doing moral policing, giving opinions on actor's lives. Media should not become moral police; they should just report. -Katrina Kaif

I love to read books that focus on parenting topics because there are so many different ways to do things. I find these books offer a lot of great opinions on many different subjects. -Kourtney Kardashian

I had a pregnancy that wasn't private… A lot of people had their opinions about it. They were surprised that I came up pregnant, which was a surprise to me, because I'm a woman, and women get pregnant, and Lauren comes first before the actress, so having my son was the best thing that ever happened to me. -Lauren London

I think a lot of the most interesting work in art and in films are often kind of polarized opinions and affect people in very different ways, which may be less successful commercially, but they elicit a dialogue that's quite interesting. -Lily Cole

Society puts so much emphasis on outer appearance, but being confident in yourself and not letting others' opinions affect you is pretty amazing. -Brendan Dooling

I'm not being secretive about anything. I just actually don't have opinions about society. -Tao Lin

I've spent a lot of time in America since Sept. 11, 2001. Being here, I was noticing that the people, who in the '60s used to voice their opinions about their rights, are much different today. People are afraid to voice opposition to the government in a mass way. -Ziggy Marley

Having a puppet is a way of having opposing opinions – I say a thing; he says the other. -Nina Conti

The journalistic code of ethics governing the broadcasts requires that opposing views be presented, and that journalists' personal opinions or judgments be left out of factual reporting. -Sheri Fink

Anyone working at HootSuite will tell you that I don't sugarcoat my opinions. I heavily encourage feedback and suggestions – partly because I'm blunt about offering the same in return. -Ryan Holmes

I'd say the key thing is to remain true to what originally got you into music. When I wrote 'Hallelujah,' it ignited me to do music because of the love and joy that I got from writing that song. Down the road, you get all of these opinions from people; just remember what got you started in the first place. -Gin Wigmore

We have to program the mind of the public that age is not ugly. Age is just age. Wake up, American children, and stop listening to other people's voices. Know yourself, be true to yourself and make a contribution. It took me half my life to know myself. I listened to other people's opinions and took them as gospel. -Carmen Dell'Orefice

People will always have their opinions; I've come to learn whose matter. -John Varvatos

Focusing on that one review you feel is unfair misses the value, which is the whole symphony of opinions you get on your page. -Jeremy Stoppelman

People go into a gallery, and they're afraid to express their opinions about art. No one's afraid to say, 'Keanu Reeves was bad in that movie.' We see so many films that we can tell who's faking it. But with art, we can't always tell. -William Quigley

High-profile columnists should remember they are in a privileged position. Writing isn't a dreadfully specific skill – it's taught to millions via our schooling system. And opinions? Well, I've yet to meet people without opinions. -Rob Manuel

Opinions of language are as interesting as opinions of arithmetic. -P. J. O'Rourke

Some people have facts; these can be proven. Some people have theories; these can be disproven. But people with opinions are mindless and have their minds made up about it. -P. J. O'Rourke

All religious believers should be licensed to make sure that they are competent to hold opinions and viewpoints and that they don't believe in just any old thing, such as creationism or a flat tax. -P. J. O'Rourke

The freedom to express yourself without fear – that perhaps is something we in the U.S. take for granted. It's almost inconceivable to think we would be afraid to express our opinions or thoughts, but that's not true for all parts of the world now, and certainly not before World War II. -Friedrich St. Florian

Writing means sharing. It's part of the human condition to want to share things – thoughts, ideas, opinions. -Paulo Coelho

When you're a young playwright, you're probably too precarious in your own technique to understand that when these seemingly informed opinions are contradicting each other, it becomes this paralyzing monolith. -Richard Greenberg

As a rule, I try to steer clear of opinions pertaining to your parenting. I assume you're doing the best you can, and God bless. -Emma McLaughlin

In the World Wars, people were perfectly able to shoot other people just because they belonged to the wrong country, without ever asking what their opinions were. Faith too is like that. -Richard Dawkins

If men would as fervently seek after love and righteousness as they do after opinions, there would be no strife on earth, and we should be as children of one father, and should need no law or ordinance. For God is not served by any law, but only by obedience. -Jakob Bohme

WI played a young Helena Bonham Carter in a BBC film called 'A Dark Adapted Eye,' and I thought she was a completely spellbinding person. Totally unmoved by other people's expectations, fashions or opinions. She's probably the coolest English actress there is. Incredibly idiosyncratic. -Honeysuckle Weeks

I'm not the kind of person that seeks out other people's opinions on my works. -Dane DeHaan

The criticism does not hurt because I have always been my own worst critic. I wouldn't say I don't respect other people's opinions, but my opinion is the most important. -Tony McCoy

As I came to the lime light, the media asked me many questions. A lot many moral policing… 'Wear this, wear that, why a T-shirt?' Everybody has the right to form their opinions, and I have the right to ignore them. -Sania Mirza

When I was writing about the Republican primaries, it was as though the Bible was a black box that people reached into to pull out edicts and prejudices and rules and opinions, and I wish they had fact-checked it! Especially Rick Santorum. -Walter Kirn

When I'm working on a film, I think about how it will play with a tiny audience of friends whose opinions I respect – basically, a 40-bloc radius from my apartment in Manhattan. -Doug Liman

Cultural synthesis is how a compromise between various opinions is worked out. But truth does not change, and truth is not arrived at by some sort of compromise. -David Novak

I'm very concerned about the tone of politics in recent years. We've seen a decline in civility and bipartisanship, and a rapid increase in hostility between those who have differing opinions. I think this has led to the alienation of the public in governance, which jeopardizes democratic participation. -Kyrsten Sinema

My mum is incredibly leftwing, and my dad was quite rightwing – no surprise they didn't stay together – and so I had two very conflicting political opinions as a child, neither of which I was interested in taking any notice of, being a sort of little reprobate. -Nick Love

As a writer, I've tried to avoid strong opinions about morality. You just want to present things as they are and let the viewer come to their own conclusion. -Terence Winter

When you home study, you get a better education. I basically got to teach myself. Being naturally able to make my own opinions about the schoolwork I had to deal with, instead of being instructed under the tutelage of the teacher, was really nice academically. -Thora Birch

By voting, we add our voice to the chorus that forms opinions and the basis for actions. -Jens Stoltenberg

We will not put a lid on opinions. On the contrary, it is more important than ever that political debates are open and free, even on the most difficult issues. Especially on the most difficult issues. The task is to encourage controversial debates in a form that strengthens democracy. -Jens Stoltenberg

In the end, the whole Internet thing kills me, because you can use it as a positive thing or you can read into all the negativity. And I think you've gotta put out positive energy, put out cool viral stuff, and then just stay out of people's opinions. -Nikki Sixx

At the Oscars, if you didn't vote for '12 Years a Slave,' you were a racist. You have to be very careful about what you say. I do have particular views and opinions that most of this town doesn't share, but it's not like I'm a fascist or a racist. There's nothing like that in my history. -Gary Oldman

On 'Think Like a Man,' they got the best out of me because they allowed me to bring my own cadences and opinions to the character that I was playing. I think we got the best of that particular character. -Kevin Hart

In the early 2000s, people expected that anonymity on the Internet would be positive for the development of democracy in South Korea. In a Confucian culture like South Korea's, hierarchy can block the free exchange of opinions in face-to-face situations. The web offered a way around that. -Kim Young-ha

I like talking one-on-one to everyone. I find it really sort of cathartic and interesting to hear people's opinions. -L'Wren Scott

There's a longstanding tradition that journalists don't cheer in the press box. They have opinions, like anyone else, but they are expected to keep those opinions out of their work. -Bill Dedman

I'm allowed to have my opinions as an American, but it seems the Left becomes very intolerant when you have an opinion other than what they state. -Joe Wurzelbacher

If there is no God, the labels 'good' and 'evil' are merely opinions. They are substitutes for 'I like it' and 'I don't like it.' They are not objective realities. -Dennis Prager

When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks I probably wouldn't like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions. -Ben Affleck

I never feel like I've been pushed towards a certain thing, but now, at 26, I do feel like I have integrity over my output, you know? There's a fine line between saying, 'You can't tell me what I can and can't do,' and taking on board people's opinions. -Cassie Ventura

Whoever has not experienced the pleasure of taking a young lady to her first game of ball should seize the first opportunity to do so. Her remarks about plays, her opinions of different players and the umpire, and the questions she will ask concerning the game, are all too funny to be missed. -John Montgomery Ward

Art is the only thing that can save me from my opinions about the world. I tend to get very worked up about what I see going on, and I feel, you know, impotent to make the kind of changes and the kind of difference that I would like to make. -David Dobkin

Deprived of the opportunity to judge one another by the cars we drive, New Yorkers, thrown together daily on mass transit, form silent opinions based on our choices of subway reading. Just by glimpsing the cover staring back at us, we can reach the pinnacle of carnal desire or the depths of hatred. Soul mate or mortal enemy. -David Rakoff

In 1998, Vanity Fair asked me to write a big piece for them on the 50th anniversary of the New York City Ballet. My life, to a great extent, had been spent at and with the New York City Ballet, and I decided to try it. It was very scary, writing about something I loved so much and had such strong opinions about. -Robert Gottlieb

At the end of the day, your fans are the people who support you in and out. And their opinions matter. -Kevin Hart

The second time around, I'll understand that, as a husband, my wife doesn't care about my opinions. I just need to tell her the things that will continue to help me stack the brownie points. -Kevin Hart

Reviewers are certainly entitled to their own opinions. I've become buddies with enough writers and directors, and to be perfectly honest, the ones that have lasted a long time don't pay a lot of attention to the reviews. -Evan Daugherty

I keep lot of my opinions to myself. My grandfather, who was a gravedigger, told me one day, 'Son, the next time you go by the cemetery, remember that a third of the people are in there because they got into other people's business.' -Lee Trevino

It's fascinating that people, there's so many people now who will make judgments based on what you look like. I'm black. So I'm supposed to think a certain way. I'm supposed to have certain opinions. I don't do that. You don't create a box and put people in and then make a lot of generalizations about them. -Clarence Thomas

My job is to write opinions. I decide cases and write opinions. It is not to respond to idiocy and critics who make statements that are unfounded. That doesn't mean that people shouldn't have constructive criticisms, but it should be constructive. -Clarence Thomas

I'm a big fan of independent girls who are strong-willed, vocal in their opinions, and have a sense of humor. -David Lambert

No one in 'Banshee' has small opinions. They have strong beliefs, and they will defend them ferociously. Having that element in the show just adds another level. It's another avenue for story, and it enriches the world. -Antony Starr

The Internet is a bastion of negativity, and we get to sit there and voice our cute, little, important opinions. -Roger Craig Smith

Everybody's entitled to their opinions, but I don't understand why we have to saturate social media with all the negative stuff. -Megan Hilty

Let's be honest: we all watch the show at home and play 'armchair' 'Survivor,' inserting our opinions, comments and yelling at the TV screen. -Jenna Morasca

My grandmother is very liberal, but… she still has her opinions. -Rutina Wesley

The one thing that 'Via Dolorosa' has is no opinions. To me, curiosity is 50 times as valuable as opinion. -David Hare

I've been coaching the sport for a number of years. And I went through many athletes. Some athletes stay with your program for a long, long period of time. Some athletes, they have a different approach as far as coaching style or your philosophies. I totally respect their own opinions – they have the right to choose their own coach. -Liang Chow

If I'm the president, I will call in all the different political opinions to come together and to make one front to the benefit of Mexico. -Enrique Pena Nieto

The people at my label are always endorsing what I say. They say, 'You see the truth, so speak it.' They believe in me. They respect my opinion. At least I have an opinion, and I'm not trying to play it safe. I don't go around saying, 'I think everyone is great, and the world is fantastic.' Everyone has opinions. They just don't say it. -Estelle

In spite of the opinions of certain narrow-minded people, who would shut up the human race upon this globe, as within some magic circle it must never outstep, we shall one day travel to the moon, the planets, and the stars, with the same facility, rapidity, and certainty as we now make the voyage from Liverpool to New York! -Jules Verne

Whether you are liberal or conservative, people seem to know the talking points for whatever the issue of the day is. Very rarely does it seem like these are opinions that people are coming up with themselves; it's like they watched the right cable news channel, and now they know what they are supposed to think, and they repeat that. -Shane Carruth

I don't listen to opinions. -Derek Jeter

Plato found fault that the poets of his time filled the world with wrong opinions of the gods, making light tales of that unspotted essence, and therefore would not have the youth depraved with such opinions. -Philip Sidney

Any lazy or biased fool can have opinions; making judgments is the hard work of responsible and compassionate people. -Lewis B. Smedes

I've never worried about 'the reader' because there isn't one. There are thousands, and they all have strong opinions, from 'Magician' was the best ever,' and I've gone downhill since to 'The new book is the best ever,' so to whom to I listen? So I write for myself and hope other people like it. -Raymond E. Feist

I am not a politician or a military strategist. I am just a citizen voicing my opinions. -Cindy Sheehan

My father would never have said about any of his children you shouldn't express your opinions. But it's the way in which you express them. And for me to do – to speak at demonstrations and be as strident as I was now I see wasn't right. And it – there was a better way to do it. I could have written articles. -Patti Davis

When my father, Ronald Reagan, was running for president in 1980, my mother, Nancy, traveled with him on the campaign trail, but she did not give speeches or even many interviews. She never stood in front of a group of reporters and expounded on her views and opinions. -Patti Davis

Women are taught that if you want to be a lady, keep your opinions to yourself and be polite. -Judy Gold

It doesn't help to just get women's opinions and then turn them over to an all-white-male engineering team. -Anita Borg

If you go out there and start making noise and making sales – people will find you. Sales cure all. You can talk about how great your business plan is and how well you are going to do. You can make up your own opinions, but you cannot make up your own facts. Sales cure all. -Daymond John

For your own self-respect and sanity, your creative freedom, you have to be careful that you don't rely too much on other people's opinions of what you do because it can stunt and inhibit you. -Luke Evans

People do stop me and talk to me about something they saw that they loved. It is very satisfying, but I have my own opinions. -Raquel Welch

I have no problem with commenters stating strong opinions, except for my usual annoyance with people who don't agree with me. -Scott Westerfeld

Football's all about opinions, all of them different, whether from a top analyst or a man in a bunnet, and some folk are just never going to like you. -Charlie Adam

Different people have different opinions, and it's okay to respect all of them. -Juan Pablo Galavis

There's nothing that everyone likes in the world. People have different opinions. It's just the way of living. I know that there will be differences. -Miyavi

I definitely care about what's happening in our country. I grew up in a family that was very liberal and had very strong opinions about liberal ideas. I was around those thoughts and had conversations about those things and did the best I could to absorb what was happening around me and have my own opinion about it. -Robert Coppola Schwartzman

When I was a bad writer, I would consciously imitate other NPR writers who I thought were wonderful. I suppose that everyone's artistic practice is different. But I collaborate and sometimes don't agree at all with my collaborators' opinions. It forces you to understand why you don't agree with something: what's the fight you're picking. -Ira Glass

The thorniest business problems will surface at the board meetings, and the different, sharp opinions help to better explore the poles of the arguments to make better decisions. -Scott Weiss

While having a profound impact on the development of values is surely an important job of a good parent, force-feeding opinions to them is not. -Kara Swisher

Being misunderstood by people whose opinions you value is absolutely the most painful. -Gloria Steinem

Who cares about my opinions? -Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Persuasion is achieved by the speaker's personal character when the speech is so spoken as to make us think him credible. We believe good men more fully and more readily than others: this is true generally whatever the question is, and absolutely true where exact certainty is impossible and opinions are divided. -Aristotle

I own that it is a good deal of a mystery to me how judges, of all persons in the world, should put their faith in dicta. A brief experience on the bench was enough to reveal to me all sorts of cracks and crevices and loopholes in my own opinions when picked up a few months after delivery and reread with due contrition. -Benjamin N. Cardozo

I don't have any opinions about Russians. There are celebrity persons in each country. Different people do different things. -Alexei Mordashov

The president in Finland has to understand that there are many different thoughts and opinions and that they must be taken into account so that he could be the president of the whole nation. -Sauli Niinisto

Most open letters undoubtedly come from a good place, rising out of genuine outrage or concern or care. There is, admittedly, also a smugness to most open letters: a sense that we, as the writers of such letters, know better than those to whom the letters are addressed. We will impart our opinions to you, with or without your consent. -Roxane Gay

I do think people of good will can have different opinions but still be coming not from a place of malice. -John Scalzi

What I love is getting polarized opinions. -Brendon Urie

It's definitely team work with my fashion career. The trick is to surround yourself with the best people, those whose opinions you really trust and value. -Suki Waterhouse

I have never entered into any controversy in defense of my philosophical opinions; I leave them to take their chance in the world. If they are right, truth and experience will support them; if wrong, they ought to be refuted and rejected. Disputes are apt to sour one's temper and disturb one's quiet. -Benjamin Franklin

The funny thing about directing is that you have your own opinions, but it's a collaboration. Directing is a group effort. Even though you might think something works, the smartest thing you can do as a director is try and weigh the opinions of the people around you. -Chris Evans

My family is certainly very vocal. They're very Italian. A lot of our holidays end with people screaming at each other across the room. And everyone's very opinionated and intelligent. A lot of my aunts and uncles are wildly educated, and their opinions reflect that. We're all very liberal. -Chris Evans

Our judgment and moral categories, our idea of the future, our opinions about the present or about justice, peace, or war, everything, without excluding our rejections of Marxism, is impregnated with Marxism. -Octavio Paz

I've always hated Zagat. If I'm going to listen to someone else's opinions on restaurants, I don't care if I agree or not. I just want to know who they are. -Ruth Reichl

You don't accomplish a lot by changing people's opinions by shoving facts down their throat. I think you change people's opinions by opening your heart up and showing the parallels between you and another person. That's how people's ideas shift. -Mary Lambert

I like disagreement because it forces both sides to question their own opinions and why they feel that way. -Sam Hunt

I don't read fashion blogs all that much. I do read magazines, and I trust my friends' opinions, even though we all dress very differently. -Sophia Amoruso

If you ask anyone on any street corner in the world what the Soviet Union looks like, they would probably have very strong opinions. And they probably would be wrong. -Rick Smolan

Everyone has an idea over time of what the business should be, and during the formative period, too many opinions could be disruptive. -Nick Woodman

I have so many strong opinions on the entertainment industry, but if I'm in a deli somewhere, and someone says they love that Adam Sandler movie where he dresses up as his twin sister – well, I don't want to make people feel bad for how they feel about things. I'm always courteous, not mean. -Andy Kindler

I love David's attitude in the Bible. He wasn't afraid to go against the trends. He wasn't going to be defined by the opinions of others. -Victoria Osteen

With Twitter, it's a little harder to tell jokes that somebody hasn't heard already. You have all these people out there sharing their opinions and telling jokes in real time, and by the time you get on, somebody's already done some version of what you're trying to do. -Frank Caliendo

I've lost count of the times I've been asked to 'be' Malcolm Tucker: to go on a political program on television, presumably in order to be the character and give opinions as him. -Peter Capaldi

I think that whether we acknowledge it or not, our opinions as authors always influence our work. How can they not? -William Kent Krueger

I have my opinions about the way my father was. But they are my opinions, not necessarily the truth, and they are certainly not the whole spectrum of what this man was going through. It's my young, selfish interpretation of that person. -Dennis Christopher

Actors in the film industry are usually wary of expressing their opinions on the issues of the day, politics especially. -Anupam Kher

Opinion is dominating, which is absolutely ridiculous – there wouldn't be anything for people to have opinions about if there weren't people out there gathering facts on the ground. -Meghan Daum

As humans with egos and feelings, none of us wants to be pilloried. But as thinkers and writers, it's our job to express opinions forthrightly and without qualifying them out of existence. -Meghan Daum

I don't view my opinions as the right ones; they are just different. -Glen Taylor

There is a continuous stream of opinions on governance issues expressed daily, not only in our Parliament and in the print media, but also on talk-radio and social media. -Anthony Carmona

Everyone in China knows The Topics. The television stations and newspapers run the same state-generated stories all across the country, and the Chinese form their opinions based on these somewhat controlled sources. -Paolo Bacigalupi

'The Lady's World' should be made the recognized organ for the expression of women's opinions on all subjects of literature, art and modern life, and yet it should be a magazine that men could read with pleasure. -Oscar Wilde

For the most part, we inherit our opinions. We are the heirs of habits and mental customs. -Robert Green Ingersoll

You have heard me say many times that I want strong leaders who feel free to express their opinions. -Jeffrey Lurie

At URBN, we see ourselves as customer specialists, a collection of brands, each one specializing in one particular customer group, a particular lifestyle or a life stage. We offer her things she wants in environments that inspire her. We talk to her and listen to her ideas and opinions. -Richard Hayne

In Lebanon, there are completely different opinions and values in one country in terms of religion, modernity, tradition, East and West – which allows for a kind of intellectual development not available anywhere else. -Rabih Alameddine

As a natural historian, I don't believe in the consciousness of rocks or the opinions of rainbows or the convictions of slugs. -Jim Crace

For years, we have been asking the E.U. to create something similar to the Russia-NATO council. Not in order to simply exchange opinions and work out recommendations, but to make decisions. -Sergei Lavrov

I've been amazed at how fast and herd-like opinions in the United States are. -Evan Osnos

Solemnity in politicians is not only tiresome but may even mask those twin sins – self-righteousness and intolerance – for the opinions of others. If I couldn't laugh, I couldn't live, especially in politics. -Ralph Bellamy

Many people – especially those people who earn livings by convincing editors and bookers that rich and influential strangers consider their thoughts and opinions interesting – have ideas about who should or should not run for president. -Alex Pareene

If I can feel that actual people made the thing, and that they have deeply felt opinions about it, and care about this, and don't care about that and so on and so on – then I think it falls into the 'independent' file. -Chris Eigeman

My family claims I think I'm always right, although I'm always willing to be proven wrong. I hold my opinions dearly, but you can always try to convince me differently, and if you do, I will hold that opinion dearly. I am decidedly stubborn and have been described as not having a type-A personality, but a quadruple-A personality. -Eric Walters

Everyone has an opinion when it comes to immigration – strong, intense opinions. -Jose Antonio Vargas

Upon the subjects of which I have treated, I have spoken as I have thought. I may be wrong in regard to any or all of them; but, holding it a sound maxim that it is better only sometimes to be right than at all times to be wrong, so soon as I discover my opinions to be erroneous, I shall be ready to renounce them. -Abraham Lincoln

Nothing could be more dangerous than following the popular maxim whereby it is the spirit of the law that must be consulted. This is an embankment that, once broken, gives way to a torrent of opinions. -Cesare Beccaria

The present practice is to impress one's own discoveries, opinions and principles on the child by constantly directing his actions. The last thing to be realised by the educator is that he really has before him an entirely new soul, a real self whose first and chief right is to think over the things with which he comes in contact. -Ellen Key

I guess people don't think that young girls or young artists have opinions, but I'm so glad that there's artists like Lorde and Raury and Kehlani because they're showing other people that young people can have an opinion and a voice and do really well with it. I'm glad I can be one of those people. -Alessia Cara

Atheism is a moral position – a rather rigid one, if you've ever read the opinions of its highest-profile espousers, Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins. -Lynn Coady

Many people supported the Conservatives because of David Cameron, while many people supported Labour despite Ed Miliband. Deteriorating opinions of Cameron will therefore have a bigger impact on the Conservatives' vote share than worsening views of Miliband would have on Labour's. -Michael Ashcroft

Don't talk about writing. Write. Don't show unfinished work to anyone. Don't show finished work to non-writers. Get your opinions, not from friends and family, but by sending your work out to editors. An endless stream of rejection slips means you need to learn more. So learn more. -Holly Lisle

I'm a working journalist. I'm interested in all points of view, and I draw conclusions based on facts, not just on opinions. -Tom Brokaw

The best way to avoid falling prey to the opinions of others is to realize that other people's opinions are just that – opinions. Regardless of how great or terrible they think you are, that's only their opinion. Your true self-worth comes from within. -Travis Bradberry

Influential people aren't buffeted by the latest trend or by public opinion. They form their opinions carefully, based on the facts. They're more than willing to change their mind when the facts support it, but they aren't influenced by what other people think – only by what they know. -Travis Bradberry

Religion and philosophy are to be preserved distinct. We are not to introduce divine revelations into philosophy, nor philosophical opinions into religion. -Isaac Newton

I have opinions, sure, but they're mine, not something I'm going to insist everyone else take as any kind of gospel. -Laura Anne Gilman

Most people get scared away from having an opinion. It's not so much my opinions everybody relates to, it's that I don't care about being punished for it. -Ronda Rousey

At the end of the day, I can't curl up with people's opinions. -Ronda Rousey

I am something of a contrarian, I suppose. I feel less comfortable when everybody agrees with me. I say, 'I better reexamine my position!' I probably believe that the worst opinions in my court have been unanimous. Because there's nobody on the other side pointing out all the flaws. -Antonin Scalia

How many people have different opinions in this world? Every different person has a different opinion of what that bottle really is or what colour it is. If I say that bottle is clear, there will be someone out there telling me that bottle is green or blue. -Tyson Fury

Five people read my work before its ready for publication, and I solicit opinions from all of them: my wife, my agent, my editor, and my parents. -Jesse Kellerman

Even fictional characters sometimes receive unwarranted medical opinions. Doctors have diagnosed Ebenezer Scrooge with OCD, Sherlock Holmes with autism, and Darth Vader with borderline personality disorder. -Sam Kean

To be honest, there are no problems between me and Messi. People have their own opinions about who they think is the better player. It is what it is, but there is no rivalry beyond games and what happens on the pitch. -Cristiano Ronaldo

As the physical, digital, and biological worlds continue to converge, new technologies and platforms will increasingly enable citizens to engage with governments, voice their opinions, coordinate their efforts, and even circumvent the supervision of public authorities. -Klaus Schwab

I love the idea of trying to do the work of old-fashioned novelists of plotting and of really making you curious about what's going to happen next and all that, but also trying to load it up with your weird thoughts and opinions. -Adrian Tomine

The editorial page is where you'll find our opinions, while the letters columns and the space for Op-Ed contributors are a forum for debate and discussion. -Andrew Rosenthal

The 24/7 nature of online debate, on the web and across social media, has allowed for more vibrant discussion of the opinions we publish – and your own. -Andrew Rosenthal

I think the vision for FOX is to have a network full of people who have opinions as opposed to people who say news. If my message doesn't fit in, but I get that platform, then I'm reaching the people who most need to hear it. -Katie Nolan

The truth is, the NFL will never respect women and their opinions as long as the media it answers to doesn't. I'm ready when you are, Fox. -Katie Nolan

Although I'm only fourteen, I know quite well what I want. I know who is right and who is wrong. I have my opinions, my own ideas and principles, and although it may sound pretty mad from an adolescent, I feel more of a person than a child. I feel quite independent of anyone. -Anne Frank

If there is one thing I fear less than everything else, it is, I believe, persecution for my opinions. There are a good many points about which I may be diffident, but when it comes to questions of Truth and intellectual independence, there is no holding me – I can envisage no finer end than to sacrifice oneself for a conviction. -Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

All the great evils which men cause to each other because of certain intentions, desires, opinions, or religious principles, are likewise due to non-existence, because they originate in ignorance, which is absence of wisdom. -Maimonides

Think about Medusa, with the snakes. If you shoot a movie in Europe, the financiers are three snakes, and they all have opinions. In Hollywood there are, like, 20 snakes. -Daniel Espinosa

Money and success haven't really changed my beliefs or opinions over the years. When I was growing up, my mum and dad split when I was 13 or 14, during the early-Nineties recession. At that time, my dad went bankrupt, and it played a huge part in it all at home. -Matt Bellamy

I try to basically keep my opinions to myself when it comes to people who are charged with crimes that I don't know anything about. -Oprah Winfrey

The opinions of a convenience sample… may not represent all users. -John Quelch

I learned my lesson early in my career that it's not helpful to go and look at what other people's opinions are. -Jenny Slate

Polls can change; people's opinions can change. Voting intentions can change, and I think it would be a silly leader, a silly political party, that would assume that we have it sewn up. -Nicola Sturgeon

It is true that some people are interested in the buying part of things… They want to buy everything from the movie reviews to the media net to the opinions and so on. -Kangana Ranaut

Freedom of expression is tested during times of anger and conflict and enables all opinions and outraged expressions of dissent that we may not want to hear. But even for this there have to be limits. -Yair Lapid

I used to have so many opinions before I learned the facts. -Yair Lapid

When I did 'The Cell' – no matter what you think of that movie, because I have my opinions of it too – it was, you know, I still have nightmares from the research that I did. Not from playing the part, just from the research. -Vincent D'Onofrio

It's perfectly O.K. to not be completely predictable. I am a person, and I have individual opinions that may not line up ideologically. -Debbie Wasserman Schultz

I look forward to physical activity; it's a release from stress and a nice distraction. It puts me in a better mood. I never used to take classes before, but then I tore my plantar fascia so I couldn't run. I started taking SoulCycle classes, which I know are polarizing. People have strong opinions. Even though I can run again, I still go. -Ellie Kemper

There must be free and open interdepartmental discussion and consideration of everyone's ideas and opinions. These internal discussions must not be considered an invasion of turf, and must remain private… When everyone is on the same page, trust develops, and teams can grow and succeed together. -Jerry Reinsdorf

I don't really take into account what the media says. People have their own opinions about what goes on, but they don't see what goes on behind the scenes with an athlete and their preparation. -Sophie Pascoe

As you get larger, it is harder to have focused discussions. Because one of the things I've learned about Congress over the past four years that I've been in is there's no shortage of opinions about how things should be done on any particular subject. -Bill Flores

My opinions are aggressive, I admit that. But not my personality. I'm sociable. -Ariel Sharon

There are lots of different ideas, lots of different opinions about the First Amendment Defense Act and what it should be. There were a lot of different forms of it while I was on the Hill. But I would say that I agree that the decision on gay marriage does mean that we need to take some steps to defend religious liberty. -Evan McMullin

On a red carpet, you really want to feel your best, so to work with a designer who will shape a dress to your figure and take into consideration your opinions is really a blessing. -Elizabeth Debicki

I never really felt I had the same respect as my male team-mates. My opinion wasn't worth as much. I used to sit quietly in meetings and not say anything, as I knew my opinions would be disregarded. And that's after I had become Olympic champion and multiple world champion. -Victoria Pendleton

Despite the occasional high decibel level, 'The Group' is not a shout fest. I don't simply want panelists with opposing opinions trying to out-shout one another. -John J. McLaughlin

What I want is a clash of ideas, not opinions. -John J. McLaughlin

Honestly, I could care less about other people's opinions about me. -Stephen Curry

Being the one woman in the room should not be seen as a victory. If there's only one of us in the room, we're still a token; we don't actually have an empowered voice. If there's two of us, we're still a minority. If there's three, then we're allowed to have a multiplicity of opinions. -Kerry Washington

Those who are greatly occupied in physical or material matters lack sufficient knowledge or have only superficial understanding of spiritual matters. Therefore, such people's opinions and judgments concerning spiritual matters carry no weight. -Said Nursi

Sometimes, we feel like we don't want to offend people, but there are times that we need to express ourselves without fear that somebody is going to shut us down simply because we have differing opinions. That's how we grow. -Benjamin Watson

It sounds kind of cliche when teams say, 'Us against the world,' but that's the mentality you have to have. There are so many opinions out there that come from media, that come from your family or come from people on TV. -Benjamin Watson

The period before the game can be important to influence opinions, characters, personalities, feelings, and, of course, I use that to touch my players, to touch opponents, to touch supporters. -Jose Mourinho

It's not for the president to determine the arrangements between Israel and the Palestinians, and the Arab world, but to be the bridge between opinions and to facilitate dialogue and understanding. -Reuven Rivlin

I find it preferable not to have public opinions about anything. It's good for me to shut up. -Whit Stillman

You turn on the news, there're no facts anymore. 'Here's what's happening today,' and then you cut to thirty minutes of people in little boxes, little windows, telling you their opinions on it. It seems like all the news is going on in the ticker-tape on the bottom of the news. It's all opinion, it's all editorial. -Derek Cianfrance

For me, concussion response is pure common sense. We can all probably handle a few mild concussions. I have had at least three, and despite my detractors' opinions, I am mentally and physically fine. -Peter Berg

We have a mantra. 'Facts get shares; opinions get shrugs'. -Steve Bannon

It takes people being alone in front of the computer at three in the morning to write opinions about movies, apparently. -Jeff Nichols

As I approach the end of my life, I have even less and less interest in examining what have got to be very superficial evaluations or opinions about the significance of one's life or one's work. I was never given to it when I was healthy, and I am less given to it now. -Leonard Cohen

In 2015, an opera opened about me and Justice Antonin Scalia. It's called 'Scalia/Ginsburg.' The composer, Derrick Wang, has degrees in music from Harvard and Yale. Enrolled in law school, he was reading dueling opinions by me and Justice Scalia and decided he could compose an appealing comic opera from them. -Ruth Bader Ginsburg

It's not simply to say, 'My colleagues are wrong, and I would do it this way,' but the greatest dissents do become court opinions. -Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I don't see that my majority opinions are going to be undone. -Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I try to teach through my opinions, through my speeches, how wrong it is to judge people on the basis of what they look like, color of their skin, whether they're men or women. -Ruth Bader Ginsburg

We need someone with superb judgement in their own right because, yes, a president can hire the best advisors on Earth, but I guarantee you this: Five advisors will give five different opinions. And it is the president – and the president alone – who always makes the final call. -Michelle Obama

In my late 20s, I realized that I had a very clear social conscience and strong opinions about things like diversity, equality, and education, and while I tried to become more politically literate, I just couldn't catch on. It felt like I had walked into a movie that had already started, and no one would explain what had happened. -Tracee Ellis Ross

It can be easy and tempting, especially during a presidential campaign, to listen only to opinions that mirror and fortify one's own. That's not ideal, because it eliminates learning and makes it impossible for people to understand what they dismiss as 'the other side.' -Cass Sunstein

Firing insults anonymously behind the keys of a message board, slandering other people's beliefs or opinions, this happens on a daily basis in my comment section or on my feed. Cyber-bullying and, further, online social ignorance, is a very real problem, typically without any real consequence. -Ryan McCartan

Some people feel that because you are black you will never be treated fairly, and that you should voice your opinions, be militant about them. I don't feel this way. You can't convince a fool against his will. -Ernie Banks

It's better to be honest about your opinions than to pretend you don't have them. -Campbell Brown

I have been fortunate that publications like the 'New York Times' and 'The Wall Street Journal' have allowed me to share some of my opinions with a wider audience. -Campbell Brown

The historical profession is nowhere famous for its tolerance, but there are not many countries where historians can expect to pay for their opinions with penal servitude or the firing squad. -Norman Davies

Under Lenin, hardly less than under Stalin, historians harbored critical opinions at their peril. The writing, let alone the publication, of political diaries was virtually impossible. -Norman Davies

Michael Savage turns on a microphone and broadcasts his opinions to faithful followers who enjoy listening to his views on politics, social issues, and anything else that this colorful, provocative, entertaining guy comes up with. It doesn't matter which of his views I agree or disagree with. -Mike Gallagher

The global warming hysterics don't just offer opinions and beliefs about greenhouse gases and the like. These are people who speak as if they belong to a cult. -Mike Gallagher

Your employees have lots of opinions about everything – your strategy and vision; the state of the competition; the quality of your products; the vibe in the workplace. There are tons of things you can learn from them. -Jason Fried

Why should I crowd the world with my opinions? Live and let live. That's it. Let people have their own opinions, and you just keep yours to yourself. There are too many opinions – some unnecessary, some great, some ridiculously stupid – so I think I rather not say anything and keep my opinions to myself. -Alia Bhatt

There are people who consider it almost unpatriotic to be inquisitive and to be truthful about your opinions. -Laura Dern

If a corporation can express opinions and be protected in doing so by the First Amendment, then there's no reason logically one wouldn't think they could undertake to enjoy the other rights protected under the First Amendment. -Ken Cuccinelli

At some point, you have to be willing to accept other people's opinions. I think that's helpful. -Rebecca Hall

There are a lot of people who give you their opinions on what to do. -Alexandra Daddario

Trump's opinions on the Iraq War have been as erratic as his opinions on other foreign policy matters – such as his careless position to think more countries should acquire nuclear weapons. -David Brock

If you're playing a character that someone doesn't like, that's okay, but if you're voicing your own opinions, they actually don't like you! -Jennifer Coolidge

Stand-up is a weird animal. There are people who really want to know what you think about things, your opinion on life. But then there are people who think you're just that beautician in 'Legally Blonde,' who doesn't have opinions on anything. Or that I'm Stifler's mom and hot for it all the time. -Jennifer Coolidge

I think, in politics, half the people are gonna like you, and half the people are not gonna like you, no matter what you do or what you say… It's like there are no right answers. If there were, everyone would choose the right answers. They're all opinions. -Tom Brady

I love high heels from the age of 10! Short skirts and then high heels. My classmates used to make fun of me. Like, 'Ooh, she's so skinny and she's wearing high heels.' But I just wore what I like, and I didn't care about people's opinions, the same as I don't care now. -Irina Shayk

I think whatever dress you wear, people will criticise you. Different people have different opinions. -Irina Shayk

Believe me, I've known a lot of journalists, and their opinions on most subjects are wrong. If the entire mainstream media is aligned against Trump, it is just about the best endorsement he could hope for! -Milo Yiannopoulos

Facts get shares; opinions get shrugs. -Steve Bannon

It's really important when we're writing our opinions to be transparent about what our decision method in the case is and how we get from Point A to B to C in the analysis. -Diane S. Sykes

I felt the call to this industry because I enjoy broadcast journalism. I'm steeped in the news because I enjoy the news – I like reading papers; I like reading the blogs. I love talking to newsmakers and pundits, for that matter, about their opinions. I'm an information gatherer by nature, so that's what attracted me about this industry. -Megyn Kelly

The only strong opinion that I have about myself is that I don't have any opinions. -Sushant Singh Rajput

No disrespect, but I don't make decisions based on opinions. -Andre Ward

If economists were to wait for careful studies before offering opinions about policy, we would never have anything timely to say. -Raghuram Rajan

I don't mind if my performances get dissected and people criticise what I've done on the pitch. They can talk about my game 24/7 for all I care. And a lot of those opinions and criticisms may actually be right. So I don't mind that. -Robin Van Persie

I really love the idea of stepping into another character and being able to sing maybe stuff that is not my thought and my own opinions, but be able to portray someone else and take a walk in their shoes for a while. -Jens Lekman

I wish when I was 15 that I realized my voice was important and that even my thoughts and my opinions had value. Had I known, I probably would've spoken up more. I probably would've found my activism sooner and become a writer sooner. -Angie Thomas

I leave everyone to have their own opinions of my music and my influence – or not – on others. -Jean-Michel Jarre

On occasion, a well-constructed drama can do what no reality or news program can do, what Shakespeare does brilliantly, is it can show both sides' opinions. -Mandy Patinkin

Some people have strong opinions about women with short hair. They find it very masculine and severe. Others think it's soft and feminine and makes your features stand out. It can be an Audrey Hepburn kind of thing. -Morena Baccarin

I learned a lot from Cherry Jones, from the questions she asked and the opinions she had. -Morgan Saylor

When you're female working in a male-dominated industry, there are unfortunately extra things you need to do – for example, couch opinions in a way that sounds palatable and not threatening. That's a skill I developed. -Goldie Hawn

Without a dog, no one will listen to your opinions for more than a few minutes without interrupting to tell you their opinions, which you won't find nearly as interesting. -W. Bruce Cameron

I'm having this disbelief and dissatisfaction with an establishment that feels like it's moving backward, and I think there's a similar feeling with everyone of my age and in the world of music and artistic stuff. Art is an important way those feelings get expressed and help people process their feelings and opinions. -K. Flay

I wouldn't impress my opinions on anyone. -Colm Wilkinson

I have nothing to do with opinions. I deal only with armed rebellion and its aiders and abettors. -Ulysses S. Grant

One of my beliefs about leadership is it's not how many followers you have, but how many people you have with different opinions that you can bring together and try to be a good listener. -Robert Kraft

In my mind, a good leader would say, 'OK, I need to sit down and talk to the guys who oppose me. Let me let them voice their opinions; let me get their thought process.' -Mark Cuban

I think one of the main reasons I write is to do better than ranting. The ranting is the opinion, and the writing is not the opinion. I always say that people's opinions are the worst things about them. The words demand a dignity. -Howard Jacobson

I am a troll. And do you know what? I really don't like social media apart from that aspect of it. Posting pictures of me doing this or that is really boring, but I enjoy engaging with people. I tell them it's just a laugh and to stay in touch if you're getting any grief. They're just opinions. -James Blunt

Soundgarden was incredibly democratic, and I was really proud of that. I felt like we got along better than most bands we toured with and most people we knew. And at the same time, when you're that democratic and concerned with each other's opinions, you're always concerned with what the other people think. -Chris Cornell

I just dress how I wanna dress. Not to say that I don't care about how I dress or that I'm a slob or anything like that… I just don't have to worry about the outside opinions of what people are saying. -Alessia Cara

I have trouble with things like Facebook. It presents such a warped vision. I get sick of people's opinions about every little thing and this warped view that everyone is as happy as a pig in garbage. -John Grant

Our facts aren't fact; they are opinions dressed up like facts. Our opinions aren't opinions; they are emotions that feel like opinions. Our information isn't information; it's just hastily assembled symbols. -Ryan Holiday

Many times, when you do what I do or work in journalism in general, people try to not explicitly present their opinions on topics. -Larry Wilmore

I don't know everybody's political opinions, but I think the majority of people in the arts are pretty leftist, and we're disappointed in the Trump administration. -Paul Sparks

When team members openly and passionately share their opinions about a decision, they don't wonder whether anyone is holding back. Then, when the leader has to step in and make a decision because there is no easy consensus, team members will accept that decision because they know that their ideas were heard and considered. -Patrick Lencioni

You have to build trust among team members so that people feel free to admit what they don't know, make mistakes, ask for help if they need it, apologize when necessary, and not hold back their opinions. -Patrick Lencioni

Recognize that dissenting opinions are useful even when they're wrong, and go out of your way to reward them. -Adam Grant

There are, essentially, as many opinions on marriage as there are people in the world. -Taylor Jenkins Reid

Whatever your political leaning, vote. This participation is vital. I feel the same way about issues like the space program, education, the military. The more the public focuses on these things, thinks and forms opinions, I think the better we are as a democracy. -Ron Howard

I'm a very political person. I'm a very opinionated person. I have a lot of opinions about LGBTQ representations in the media, and it's not just a gay community issue. It's a black issue. It's an Asian issue. It's a minority issue in general. -Jordan Gavaris

Being able to put your blinders on, ignore negative opinions, and follow your strong intuition is what's validating to me. It's a great feeling to know you can trust your gut. -Whitney Wolfe Herd

If you're going to have more than one person read your book, they're going to have totally different opinions and responses. No person – no two people – read the same book. -Diana Gabaldon

I have survived so long because I've been blessed with talented and gracious colleagues and with a top brass who let me choose my topics every week and then allowed me to express opinions that were not always popular. Well, someone had to stand up to the yackety-yak soccer cult. -Frank Deford

I do music to tell people my thoughts and opinions about life, emotions, politics, everything. -Benjamin Clementine

Most great leaders in history that I've studied always need to get as wide a range of opinions as possible so that they can have sufficient information to make the right decisions. -John McCain

Harvard prides itself on its diversity – economic, racial, social, geographical – but it remains intellectually segregated. It's not what conservative commentators seem to imagine – a bastion of liberal professors force-feeding radical opinions to a naive student body. -Alexandra Petri

By isolating ourselves from those with whose opinions we disagree, we lose the ability to defend our beliefs. -Alexandra Petri

I've ended up on some website list or some other list for super right-wing people. They've been tweeting some pretty rude stuff at me, so I think there's a sect of America out there that doesn't like certain opinions and can really take their claws out when they don't like what you're saying. -Jack Antonoff

It's a really natural thing: The people closest in your life are the people you want the first opinions from. At the end of the day, if you're not trying to impress those people first, then I think there's something wrong there. -Jack Antonoff

I'm very happy that major players are always giving their opinions about my life, my game. I am very thankful for that. -Neymar

As a seven-year-old, I had definite opinions on Ronald Reagan. -Adam Scott

There have always been different opinions on some elements of our sanction policy. It will probably stay that way… What is important is that we keep this unity and decide all together. -Federica Mogherini

'The Ugly Truth' isn't trying to change the world with strong political opinions; it's just trying to entertain you with thoughts and ideas from my crazy mind! -Erik Griffin

If you have 130 people on set, all with different opinions, sometimes it's going to kick off. There might be some people who say I'm a big problem to work with – that you couldn't tell me anything – but hopefully, they don't. -Aneurin Barnard

I've never actually been exposed to the hardships that proper soldiers endure. I also think you need a particular constitution to be a soldier – built a certain way and wired a certain way. I don't know if I'd be too good with being told what to do all the time. I am a law-abider, but I've got a lot of questions and opinions, so maybe not. -Tom Glynn-Carney

I certainly have opinions about things, but we're a service organization. Our job is to try and realize the director's vision. -John Knoll

I had to relearn how to love myself by forgetting the opinions of everyone else and focusing on my opinion of myself. -Winnie Harlow

The hardest thing is not caring about other people's opinions. -Natalia Dyer

I don't think it's the writer's job to give answers or to give opinions. In fact, when a writer has answers, I think the work ends up being corrupted. It becomes didactic. What a book does is share a consciousness and invite people to explore the questions as best as you can. -Nathan Englander

There comes a time as you continue to write and work on scripts and screenplays where you realize that you have opinions about the next step of the process, and you kind of want more control over the translation from page to screen. -Carrie Brownstein

I'm not OK with clergy, students, and those of different opinions lying and expressing hateful speech in the name of love, but again, it is their constitutional right. I'm not OK with their conduct, but in America we tolerate it, as obnoxious and spiteful as it may be. -Pete Hoekstra

I'm not OK with clergy, students, and those of different opinions chanting and swearing, but it is their constitutional right. -Pete Hoekstra

I had to read Plato and Kant, and at times I was overwhelmed. But I have always been fearless, and so was Hannah Arendt. She wasn't afraid to speak out when she knew her opinions would not be popular because she believed in the public discourse above all. -Barbara Sukowa

It was a shock for me to see that there are obviously more people in Germany with fascist opinions than I thought there would be. -Til Schweiger

There should be consequences for those who openly voice racist and fascist opinions. Our politicians should stand up way more; our justice system should stand up way more and punish these people harder than they ever did before. -Til Schweiger

I think my songs serve a purpose in a very therapeutic way to do with relationships, very different to do with my opinions on world affairs. -Lapsley

A hallmark of a healthy creative culture is that its people feel free to share ideas, opinions, and criticisms. Our decision-making is better when we draw on the collective knowledge and unvarnished opinions of the group. -Edwin Catmull

We went from journalism, in newspapers that gets heavily edited, to blogs, where you can express your opinions, to tweeting, where you can say anything, and it gets repeated and becomes fact when it isn't. It's something the entire world is going to have to come to grips with. -Gary Bettman

I think there's that widespread sentiment that game developers need to be quiet unless they're talking on-message. I think that's changing a little bit; Twitter has helped, with developers sharing personal opinions on things. -Jason Schreier

If we can't agree on objective truth, then how are we ever going to agree on opinions? -Morgan Neville

Everyone has their own opinions, and they're entitled to them. -Johnny Christ

I tend to solicit opinions from all those around me. I like to hear opinions and the rationale behind it from everybody in the room. Perhaps it's the result of going to law school and using the Socratic method. -Theo Epstein

Judges have their own point of view, and we have to respect them for that. Rather than feeling bad, we respect our judges and their opinions. -Rithvik Dhanjani

You're entitled your own opinions, but you're not entitled to your own facts. -Daniel Levitin

One thing I loved when I was growing up, you maybe saw one review from a magazine like 'Rolling Stone,' but now there are 150 reviews before an album even comes out. There are so many opinions out there, but the only one that really matters is your own. -M. Shadows

Some of our songs are empowering, but I feel like more so than our music, it's who we are. We're four women who are completely different ethnicities, completely different body types, completely different walks of life and opinions. -Lauren Jauregui

The only news most people ever hear about the inner city comes from grim headlines; the only residents they can name are characters on 'The Wire.' Of course, ignorance of a community doesn't stop outsiders from having opinions about it or passing laws that govern it. -James Forman, Jr.

My gut is my No. 1 asset. I also like to draw from a lot of people, and I ask a lot of questions. I'll literally show my ideas to 500 different people and get their opinions, and, in the end, after digesting all their opinions, I just trust my gut. -Scooter Braun

I think people can't say anymore, 'Celebrities should keep their political opinions to themselves,' because we elected a reality TV star, so I think that's off limits. -Tamara Taylor

I do all these panels where people are always talking about the lack of female directors, and I have a lot of opinions on that. -Julie Plec

Fashion is merely an opinion. And I've got a lot of opinions. -Kanye West

Between Trump's election and Brexit, there were all sorts of opinions coming out of the woodwork that I thought had died out a long time ago. I was like, 'What's the point?' All we do is bad things. The history of humanity is the history of people exploiting each other. -Clare-Hope Ashitey

If I don't belong because of what I think and because of my opinions, then so be it. What can one do about it? One can't bend over backwards or pretend to be someone else just to belong. And in any case, it doesn't work. Once you no longer belong, it's over. -Herta Muller

In real life, I know to filter all my jerk opinions and my jerk thoughts and my jerk desires. -Ron Livingston

When people express opinions that differ from yours, take it as a chance to grow. Seek to understand over being understood. Be curious, not defensive. The only way to disarm another human being is by listening. -Glennon Doyle Melton

We need to understand the other side to impact the other side. We become much more effective as humans and leaders when we engage in hearty conversations with those who are different from us, not necessarily to change our opinions, but to build the empathy muscle. -Daniel Lubetzky

The benefits of Umuganda are not merely economic. The day is intended to build community involvement and strengthen cohesion between persons of different background and levels.

Me and my brother get along super well. We're, like, best friends. So we'll stay up until, like, five just talking because we get along and, you know, it's cool. And he respects my opinions, and I respect his, even if we don't have the same opinions, but a lot of the time we do. -Billie Eilish

As an actor, you can have your opinions, but our responsibility is telling the point of view of this one character. -Shiri Appleby

It's so easy for folks to normalize their opinions, to engage in a groupthink that is damaging. -Amitava Kumar

I'm not saying that players should go out and say random things, especially if they don't know anything about it. But I think players do know more than people give them credit for. People do research, and people are entitled to their own opinions. -Jaylen Brown

I think teens trust each other's opinions about products because of the quality of authenticity that they think their friend's recommendation has. -Alissa Quart

Whatever differences we have, tolerating others' opinions is a prerequisite to a functioning and free society. -Dave Rubin

I try to ignore people's opinions about my music – you don't want to hold yourself back because of that stuff. -Julia Holter

How is it reasonable that in a country purporting to be a democracy, I am not permitted to speak freely? Why, as a politician, should I be banned from expressing political opinions?

You don't have to speak English to have sophisticated political opinions. -Ronny Chieng

If we just stand at two opposite ends of the spectrum screaming in each other's face, we're never gonna get anything done. I don't agree with a Trump voter, but why do they feel like that?

Some musicians don't have strong opinions, or they deliberately don't have strong opinions because they want to try and sell as many records as possible. -Lauren Mayberry

As a consumer, I love action movies and have a lot of opinions about how action comedies don't really do justice to what I find exciting about an action movie, which is the genuine thrill of watching something that feels really high-stakes. A lot of times, it's played for laughs and action, which waters down the sense of danger. -Susanna Fogel

The Left sees no place for differing opinions. -Richard Grenell

I used to have the mindset of worrying about everybody else's opinions, trying to please everybody, but that's not going to happen. -Baker Mayfield

I appreciate all the kids who come up and enjoy my play at OU. But everybody giving me their opinions is where I draw the line. If it's someone who hasn't been there before, I really can't handle it. It's 'Slide more.' 'Don't take as many hits.' 'Get out of bounds.' I know they have my best interests at heart. I just have to remind myself of that. -Baker Mayfield

The hardest part, for me, is being in the band and knowing the way I want certain things to sound, but also having to listen to opinions, and very valid opinions, of my bandmates. So, sometimes, I'll have to have conversations with them as a producer and then conversations with them as a bandmate. -Jay DeMarcus

I write songs, but the guys play on them, they have opinions on them, and we tour together and spend all our time together. -Dan Smith

I've always had my own opinions and have always been somebody who thinks outside the box. -Glenn Hoddle

If the so called 'democratic' individuals out there really believe in their talk about diversity, they should let those with truly different opinions be allowed to talk freely in public, too. -Varg Vikernes

Everyone is free to express their opinions, but I think that journalists should do it with more responsibility. They lack accuracy. -Radamel Falcao

I can only say what I have lived and experienced. And the majority of people who have been to Makhachkala have come back with different opinions. It's a relaxed city but very lively, like many of the capitals in the world. At first sight, you would never say that there are political problems. -Samuel Eto'o

Lobbying has become a term of reproach, as if it were improper to push for a particular belief. This has happened because of paid lobbyists whose opinions are for hire and the fear that decision-makers, whether politicians or officials, are susceptible to their charms and wiles. This has tarred entirely proper lobbying with the same brush. -Jacob Rees-Mogg

People's opinions, you've got to respect them. -Yoel Romero

Sometimes the game does not go for you, no matter how much you try, but I do what I can and leave other people to their opinions on how I played. -Philippe Coutinho

Those who know me best know that my opinions don't change with the wind. -Toni Kroos

When I was 23, I didn't have much of an interest in politics. All of my interests were in partying and meeting girls and doing stand-up. That's all I cared about. Now, when you have a kid and stuff, you start watching the news and say, 'They shouldn't take money away from this education department.' You start having much more exact opinions. -Jim Jefferies

Everyone is entitled to their opinions, and I feel like everyone judges people: regardless of whether they know someone or not, they have an opinion based on the persona of the person. I guess you can only have a real opinion of who they are as a person once you meet someone. -Daniel Sturridge

I don't really like to pay attention too much to what is being said about me, only because the people closest to me – my parents, family, and friends – know me best. So I feel like their opinions mean more to me than anyone else's. -Daniel Sturridge

You can have opinions, but it doesn't mean they're right. -Chanel West Coast

I do sometimes talk about my cancer because that's something people relate to a lot, as we're all going to die. Because I've been close to death and won, I have strong opinions about it, and I've learned how to discuss it and keep the energy high in the show. -Tom Green

I have a different perspective on the world than the way I looked at the world when I was 20. I was kind of naive. I'm a cancer survivor, been working in this industry for a time, and older with more opinions, more experience. -Tom Green

Being English, we're polite and reserved, we don't express our opinions; we're very private people. -Steven Wilson

What skills I lacked in, say, math or science, I like to think I made up for in my ability to read people and situations with great clarity. I therefore considered myself as a sort of valued soothsayer when it came to dispensing opinions to my friends about their life choices or relationships. -Dan Levy

Stephen could be highly critical of people other than his closest relatives… He considered my friends to be easy victims and had no compunction in monopolizing the conversation at parties with his controversial opinions. -Jane Hawking

While not explicitly articulated in the Constitution, the presumption of innocence has, through Supreme Court opinions, become a fundamental tenet of our criminal-justice system, and rightly so. -Dan Abrams

I invite a variety people on my show with wide-ranging opinions – sometimes even my jaw hits the floor, too – but I let them speak. Whether it's left, right, or center, I want to expose my viewers to other perspectives. Agree with them or not, the nation needs to listen. -Brooke Baldwin

I think the rating system is a way to open more discussion with wrestling fans about matches. To me, it's just another outlet to voice their opinions, so that's why I think they are so passionate about it. -Adam Cole

A poll survey should indicate at the outset whether it is meant to capture opinions and beliefs for preferences and practices or value and perceptions. -N. Bhaskara Rao

You can say a lot of things about me, but I own my own opinions. They're not for sale. -Sue Perkins

Typically, in France, someone in my position should keep their mouth shut. I'm an entertainer, operating in the realm of pop, and it's often looked down upon for a pop artist to take a stand, to have convictions or opinions. But I don't think the two are incompatible or mutually exclusive. -Christine and the Queens

I have opinions that are based on the facts that are presented to me. -Stephen A. Smith

We do not focus test our games and never had. People ask why we don't, and I say, 'I have so many opinions in this studio, I don't need anymore!' We really debate everything – and it's a good debate. That's why the games turn out well: it's not me – it's not this guy – it's the collective. Together, we figure out what we want. -Todd Howard

There's a thing about opinions… They are formulated over time. They tend to change with time, and you are going to change your mind many times. -Kalki Koechlin

They want me to stop making my opinions and not saying a word; I know the Left wants that. -Doug Ford

Feminists, I hasten to add, are not all bad. In fact, they are an ideal bellwether, an invaluable aid in helping me form opinions on issues that I don't have time to keep up with. If the feminists are for it, I'm against it; if the feminists are against it, I'm for it. -Florence King

Grace Slick was a total trip to work with. Lots of jokes and opinions. A strident individual and super talented! -Nancy Wilson

Co-directing is not possible with my brother. We have very different opinions. -Huma Qureshi

I have been told too much – to talk less, to keep my opinions to myself, to not sound intelligent – all this was told to me so that I could fit in. But I never thought I fit in anyway. So if you don't fit in, at least stand out. -Huma Qureshi

Football is a game of opinions, and some people have a great opinion of me, and some people probably think I'm absolutely useless. -Joe Hart

You can be as good as you want with your feet, but when you're making mistakes, the opinions will change immediately. -Marc-Andre ter Stegen

I've always had a lot of energy and had a lot of opinions all my life – people misunderstood that about me being naughty, gobby, or different. -Yungblud

The one thing I learned early on as a football player is people have their opinions, and I can't change them. But I can show them what they're missing. -Deshaun Watson

How is it that labels like 'centrist' and 'moderate,' which common sense tells us should reflect the views of a majority of Americans, have come to be applied to those who represent minority interests and opinions? -Mehdi Hasan
