Pierre Debs Humble Opinion
Does anyone really think their opinions are humble?  
Why have an opinion if it humble?  
 
As disgusting as my opinions are to many, I would never say " my humble opinion..."  
 
I am proud of my opinions.

Substance over style?  
 
Ever notice there's room for only a couple of bulls in the china shop?

Does anyone really think their opinions are humble? Why have an opinion if it humble?  
 
The opinion itself may or may not be humble. I think it is they manner in which the opinion is expressed that gives the speaker humility.  
 
IOW, it is not what a person says, it is the *way* the person says it.  
 
As disgusting as my opinions are to many, I would never say " my humble opinion..."  
 
Is that because you are not a humble person?  
 
I am proud of my opinions.  
 
In the the Judeo-Christian history of the West, pride is seen as an insult to God, and is admonished in the the Old Testament:  
 
from Proverbs 16 (New International Version)  
 
5 The LORD detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.  
 
18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.  
 
19 Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.
