Opinions


I've never had a humble opinion. If you've got an opinion, why be humble about it? ~Joan Baez

Strong opinions rarely are humble, but humility is a rare and desirable trait.
How different would our country be if all of our leaders would lay ego aside and lead in a humble fashion?
Just a thought!
(PS- i love joan)

I guess if one pretended to be humble while being opinionated, that would make a person very much a humbug wouldn't it.
Otherwise, I think humility is still speaking even while speaking one's mind. Perhaps it all depends
how a person says something. :)

Susan Abraham said...

Sorry. An error. I meant humility is still possible.
