Many pithy statements have been written about "opinion", which is a stated topic of this blog. Some examples:
1. Opinions are like garbage can (or a portion of the anatomy not mentioned in polite company); everybody has one, and they all stink.
2. In earlier years, I used to say to my wife: you may have your own opinion; I just don't want to hear it. (Surprisingly, we are still together).
3. There is a great line of dialogue in the recently aired drama, Downton Mannor, spoken by the grandmother (marvelously portrayed by the incomparable Maggie Smith). When told that her granddaughter had an opinion, she replied: "When she gets married, her husband will tell her what opinions she may have".
Anyone foolish enough to be interested in my opinions on such hot topics as religion, politics, economics, morality, etc. can decipher them by reading existing and future novels.
