95 Famous Opinion Quotes, Sayings and Phrases

As individuals, everybody has their own opinions, beliefs, dogmas, and definitions about themselves and their world. 

And ironically, everybody firmly believes my opinion is right and needs to be appreciated.

Since everybody thinks that way, the world locks horns, and there is constant friction in relationships. And this constant difference of opinion without understanding facts is the root cause of all evil in the world.

How to have better relationships with the world?

Firstly, just like you, everybody has the right to have an opinion according to their personality and cultural background.

Everybody is the same mentally. Your mind and my mind tendencies are basically the same at a deeper level. 

Both our minds want to feel superior and dominate the other through their opinion. 

The more you stop worrying about your self-image in front of others, the better you can freely listen to other’s viewpoints and judgments and not get affected by them mentally.

And remember, this fact, as life changes, situations and events take different paths, your opinion too will keep changing from time to time.

Life means time, and time means to change.  So, do not take a hard stand over your changing options and get all emotional over somebody’s opinion about you.  

If we can really live that way, life becomes very joyful as you become freer and freer mentally. And public opinion will have less meaning because now you know very well that similar to individual opinion, societies’ collective mentality too will keep changing its directions.

How to live a life of inner conviction?

Thoughts rise and fall, but love and oneness are all that connect and keep us together in this otherwise loveless world.

Let Osho’s wise sayings help us understand the underlying problems of making a quick opinion, and hence remaining restless throughout life, ‘ If you wish to see the truth, then hold no opinion for or against.’

Our ego always loves taking sides and quickly want to conclude. Instead, it never wants to look at the direct fact of a happening. 

It also never wants to look at its own mistakes and shortcomings; instead quickly blames the world for its misfortunes. And gets mentally disturbed, reacts without understanding, gets hurt, and entertains unnecessary arguments in day-to-day living.

Let Stoic philosopher Epictetus’s words echo on never to allow opinions of any kind to rule us inwardly, ‘ No man is disturbed by things, but his opinion about things.’ 

We hope these inspirational and thought-provoking opinion quotes and sayings help us live a more truthful life than fall into the honey traps of mental tendencies.
