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.
