What are opinions?

Opinions are statements that tell what people think or

believe. Sometimes words and phrases like I think, I believe,
it seems probably, always, never, might, most, best, all and
none signal an opinion.

Long ago, books were written by the hands. That was probably a
very difficult and tiring job. Handwritten books were expensive. In 1440,
type was invited. Each letter was a separate block. The blocks were
combined to make words. Soon many books were printed from type. Some
people believe that a very old hand written book is more beautiful than a
printed book.
