No errors of opinion can possibly be dangerous in a country where opinion is left free to grapple with them.
      - William Gilmore Simms

It is always considered as a piece of impertinence in England, if a man of less than two or three thousand a year has any opinion at all upon important subjects.
      - Sydney Smith

Opinion is ultimately determined by the feelings, and not by the intellect.
      - Herbert Spencer

If a man would register all his opinions upon love, politics, religion, and learning, what a bundle of inconsistencies and contradictions would appear at last!
      - Jonathan Swift

"That was excellently observed," say I when I read a passage in another where his opinion agrees with mine. When we differ, then I pronounce him to be mistaken.
      - Jonathan Swift,
        Thoughts on Various Subjects

I know where there is more wisdom that is found in Napoleon, Voltaire, or all the ministers resent and to come--in public opinion.
  [Fr., Je connais quelqu'un qui a plus d'esprit que Napoleon, que Voltaire, que tous les ministres presents et futurs: c'est l'opinion.]
      - Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord,
        In the Chamber of Peers

So many men, so many opinions; everyone has his own fancy.
  [Lat., Quot homines, tot sententiae; suus cuique mos.]
      - Terence (Publius Terentius Afer), Phormio
         (II, 3, 14)

Our belief or disbelief of a thing does not alter the nature of the thing.
      - John Tillotson

Matters of fact, as Mr. Budgell somewhere observes, are very stubborn things.
      - Matthew Tindal, in his Will, p. 23

To maintain an opinion because it is thine, and not because it is true, is to prefer thyself above the truth.
      - Ralph Venning

That the voice of the common people is the voice of God is as full of falsehood as commonness.
      - Arthur Warwick

Who observes not that the voice of the people, yea of that people that voiced themselves the people of God, did prosecute the God of all people, with one common voice, "He is worthy to die." I will not, therefore, ambitiously beg their voices for my preferment; nor weigh my worth in that uneven balance, in which a feather of opinion shall be moment enough to turn the scales and make a light piece go current, and a current piece seem light.
      - Arthur Warwick

We may print, but not stereotype, our opinions.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

All empty souls tend toward extreme opinions.
      - William Butler Yeats
