A Poll! Oh!


Me: Hey! I had an idea!

Alfred: The only weapon against bad ideas is better ideas.

Me: You don’t even know what it is! Atleast hear me out!

Benard: Every man has a right to his opinion, but no man has a right to be wrong in his facts.

Francis: Lies are sufficient to breed opinion, and opinion brings on substance.

Hippocrates: There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.

Me: Yeah, whatever! Can I speak now?

Jawaharlal: A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance.

Me: Erm, is that a yes? Does someone else still have something to say or is it my turn?

Abraham: Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it, nothing can succeed.

Me: Goddamnit! I’m outnumbered!

Abe: This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.

Mohandas: For me every ruler is alien that defies public opinion.

Me: Which is exactly why I need you to let me say something!

Thomas: The good opinion of mankind, like the lever of Archimedes, with the given fulcrum, moves the world.

Me: Screw it!

And that’s when I decided that I wouldn’t rest until I found a way to say what I wanted to so that everyone could hear it. (And also, if needed, no one should find out who it was who said it)

Here lie the answers. The options atleast. A special thanks to Normal, Insti AAS for being very helpful and cooperative all along.
