Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding. The highest form of knowledge is empathy, for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another’s world. It requires profound purpose, larger-than-the-self kind of understanding.
Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod. My shadow does that much better.
We don’t need to share the same opinions as others, but we need to be respectful.
