Each of us is burdened by an unlimited number of
expectations (demands) that we hold for the actions of others.
We "know" that there is a right way to do things,

have a strong opinion and point-of-view,
and are sure that we know how everything is supposed to be.

their opinion of the world

Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

There is no truth, only human opinion.
- Anonymous

Value your own opinion more, and others' opinions less.

the same point-of-view.

for virtually none of our experience is truly factual -
and they graciously honor all other opinions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Difference of opinion is advantageous in religion.
The several sects perform the office of a Censor -
over each other.

in any specific other-directed way,
then failing becomes impossible.

like the lever of Archimedes,
with the given fulcrum, moves the world.

I have some of my own.
