Opinions.  Most men are nothing and count for nothing until they have arrayed themselves in universal convictions and public opinions.  This is in accordance with the tailors' philosophy, "The apparel makes the man”.  Of exceptional men, however, it must be said, "The wearer primarily makes the apparel”.  Here opinions cease to be public, and become something else than masks, ornament, and disguise.
