Love for Words — Opine
December 1, 2016
___ Opine is the verb of “opinion,” per se.
It means to hold an opinion, or to express an opinion without hesitation.
When experiencing heartache after a relationship ends, for example, you may opine that “Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all” — an avid agreement with a quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson.
Your friends who have experienced heartbreak themselves, might opine that such a conviction is Quixotic.*
Folks might opine about politics over a dinner conversation or through social media, or might opine a philosophy privately or to trusted friends.
On what subjects might you Opine?
* Quixotic is a previous Jacquee T. ‘Love for Words’ feature.
