There are many ways to interpret this quote, and normally I don't like the words "all or nothing," but there is something we can learn from this Irish poet.
I believe extremism gets us no where. At times, I think it causes more harm than good. Balance in thought is just as important as balance in life. Extreme opinions can be found on both ends of the spectrum, where sadly, those opinions spew more hateful thoughts, ideas and yes, opinions than balanced, rational thinking.
In this "new age" we are susceptible to extremism energy. Extremism coupled with stubborness and the notion, "I'm right and you're wrong" is bound for disaster. And most who claim these thoughts lack something in life, which does not fulfill their soul.
Nature contains thousands of different types of leaves and hundreds or different types of birds. There will never be one type of opinon. Opinions are merely a thought channeled through the lens of how someone sees a situation. In fact, we can learn more eachother if we listen with an unbiased ear. Because someone's opinion is not necessarily right or wrong - it's different.
