Opinion
 
Pray, sir, what’s your opinion of affairs in general?
        Kenney.—Raising the Wind, Act I. Scene 1.
  1
Opinion! which on crutches walks,
And sounds the words another talks.
        Lloyd.—The Poet, Line 55.
  2
Fish not with this melancholy bait
For this fool gudgeon, this opinion.
        Shakespeare.—The Merchant of Venice, Act I. Scene 1.
  3
Opinion, that great fool, makes fools of all.
        Field.—To Mr. John Fletcher.
  4
A plague of opinion! a man may wear it on both sides, like a leathern jerkin.
        Shakespeare.—Troilus and Cressida, Act III. Scene 3. (Thersites to Achilles.)
  5
We will proceed no further in this business:—
He hath honour’d me of late; and I have bought
Golden opinions from all sorts of people,
Which would be worn now in their newest gloss,
Not cast aside so soon.
        Shakespeare.—Macbeth, Act I. Scene 7.
