14 Opinion Quotes from Literature

"A man's fate is his own temper; and according to that will be his opinion as to the particular manner in which the course of events is regulated. A consistent man believes in Destiny, a capricious man in Chance." ~ Vivian Grey by Benjamin Disraeli "Facts or opinions which are to pass through the hands of so many, to be misconceived by folly in one, and ignorance in another, can hardly have much truth left." ~ Persuasion by Jane Austen My good opinion once lost, is lost forever. ~ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen "Laugh as much as you choose, but you will not laugh me out of my opinion." ~ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen "When a lady does consent to listen to an argument against her own opinions, she is always predetermined to withstand it—to listen only with her bodily ears, keeping the mental organs resolutely closed against the strongest reasoning." ~ The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte I have learned never to ridicule any man's opinion, however strange it may seem. ~ The Captain of the Polestar by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle You may set it down as a truth which admits of few exceptions, that those who ask your OPINION really want your PRAISE, and will be contented with nothing less. ~ The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. "I feel certain that his tale is true. Feeling that certainty, I befriend him. As long as that certainty shall last, I will befriend him. And if any consideration could shake me in this resolve, I should be so ashamed of myself for my meanness, that no man's good opinion - no, nor no woman's - so gained, could compensate me for the loss of my own." ~ The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens "The pressure of public opinion can do in the town what the law cannot accomplish. There is no lane so vile that the scream of a tortured child, or the thud of a drunkard's blow, does not beget sympathy and indignation among the neighbors, and then the whole machinery of justice is ever so close that a word of complaint can set it going, and there is but a step between the crime and the dock. But look at these lonely houses, each in its own fields, filled for the most part with poor ignorant folk who know little of the law. Think of the deeds of hellish cruelty, the hidden wickedness which may go on, year in, year out, in such places, and none the wiser." ~ The Adventure of the Copper Beeches by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Like many men who override the opinions of others, Challenger was exceedingly sensitive when anyone took a liberty with his own ~ The Land of Mist by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
