A Quote by Edward Bernays on opinions, masses, democratic, democracy, society, conscious, intelligent, manipulation, invisible government, and ruling power

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.

A Quote by Florence R. Krall on opinions, relationships, understanding, communication, love, friends, complexity, critical, viewpoint, and silence

When we try to explain the complexity of what we see to others who demand that things be laid out in straight paths, they often become resistent and critical... when our viewpoint repeatedly falls on deaf ears, we become silent - avoid confrontation. One source of human suffering arises when our words and actions are perceived, by those we serve or love, in a light of being different from that intended.

A Quote by Elizabeth Cady Stanton on fear, opinions, truth, silent, divine, light, life, and soul

"The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls. "

Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815 - 1902)

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on love, definitions, descriptions, opinions, experience, knowledge, knowing, know, loving, living, life, questioning, question, belief, attachment, emotional, emotions, feelings, spirit, and joy

There are those who will dismiss love as a naïve and romantic construct of our culture. Others will wax poetic and tell you that “love is all,””love is the bird call and the glint in a young girl’s eyes on a summer night.” Some will be dogmatic and tell you emphatically that “God is Love.” And some, according to their own experience, will tell us, “Love is a strong emotional attachment to another…”etc. In some cases you will find that people have never thought of questioning love, much less defining it, and object violently even to the suggestion that they think about it. To them love is not to be pondered, it is simply to be experienced. It is true to some degree all of these statements are correct, but to assume that any one is best or all there is to love, is rather simple. So each man lives love in his limited fashion and does not seem to relate the resultant confusion and loneliness to this lack of knowledge about love.

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on love, definitions, descriptions, opinions, experience, knowledge, knowing, know, loving, living, life, questioning, question, belief, attachment, emotional, emotions, feelings, spirit, and joy

In discussing love, it would be well to consider the following premises;

One cannot give what he does not possess. Too give love you must possess love.
One cannot teach what he does not understand. To teach love, you must comprehend love.
One cannot know what he does not study. To study love, you must live in love.
One cannot appreciate what he does not recognize. To recognize love you must be receptive to love.
One cannot have doubt about that which he wishes to trust. To trust love you must be convinced of love.
One cannot admit what he does not yield to. To yield to love you must be vulnerable to love.
One cannot live what he does not dedicate himself to. To dedicate yourself to love you must be forever growing in love.

If you live according to nature,
you will never be poor;

A Quote by Steven Paul (Steve) Jobs on time, life, dogma, thinking, opinions, inner voice, courage, heart, and intuition

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Steve Jobs (1955 -)

If in the last few years you haven't discarded a major opinion or acquired a new one, check your pulse. You may be dead.
