Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch.
You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.
How would your life be different if…You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day…You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others
All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.
We judge others instantly by their clothes, their cars, their appearance, their race, their education, their social status. The list is endless. What gets me is that most people decide who another person is before they have even spoken to them. What's even worse is that these same people decide who someone else is, and don't even know who they are themselves.
People can have their opinions about everything in the world, but people's opinions end where the tip of my nose begins. Your opinions of others can only go so far as to where their own shoreline is. The world is for your taking, but other people are not. One is only allowed to have an opinion of me, if that person is done educating him/herself on everything about me. Before people educate themselves on everything about you, they're not allowed to open their venomous mouthes and have an opinion about you.
People will always have opinions about your decision because they're not courageous enough to take action on their opinion.
Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.
My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I'm right.
Everyone has a sense of humor. If you don't laugh at jokes, you probably laugh at opinions.
Opinions are like onions. They spell similarly, usually have many layers, and tend to make people cry.
When another blames you or hates you, or people voice similar criticisms, go to their souls, penetrate inside and see what sort of people they are. You will realize that there is no need to be racked with anxiety that they should hold any particular opinion about you.
I cannot encourage any fabrication even for the sake of making people feel good. If I were to fabricate consciously and knowingly, I would not only be ordaining myself their enemy, but also ordaining myself God's enemy.
Each voice carries a portion of value, no matter how unpalatable or distasteful that voice may be: no one person, government, ideology, transnational, or religious institution can own and dominate the whole.
But every difference of opinion is not a difference of principle.
Giving importance to what we think because we thought it, taking our own selves not only (to quote the Greek philosopher) as the measure of all things but as their norm or standard, we create in ourselves, if not an interpretation, at least a criticism of the universe, which we don't even know and therefore cannot criticize. The giddiest, most weak-minded of us then promote that criticism to an interpretation that's superimposed, like a hallucination; induced rather than deduced. It's a hallucination in the strict sense, being an illusion based on something only dimly seen.
Don't allow the opinions of other people to shape your concept of him. Get to know him yourself, and let the goodness of God change you from the inside out.
Faithfulness imparts God's reason for all circumstances. No matter what the world says, losing is no longer an option.
Live your life by GOD’S PRINCIPLES, not someone’s opinion or commentary.
