Judging the political climate in my state by walking around lefty Ann Arbor is like a polar bear judging global warming by staring at the ice cube beneath its feet.
Eileen Pollack
Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.
I like the more community element of comedy. And I hate people pitting other people against each other. Audiences are always judging you, but when you’re being judged for a competition, it just takes away the joy of the job.
Aisling Bea
The Houston Astros are the youngest team in the National League if you judge by age.
Don Drysdale
I don’t believe in guilt, I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person, and don’t judge people in your life. I think you should live completely free.
Angelina Jolie
Try to feel and give only love and compassion to every one; you will be happy. Don’t judge or hate anything. You will be unhappy.
Jason Becker
Sachin Tendulkar is the hardest batsman I’ve ever had to bowl to because he judges the length a lot quicker than anyone else.
Shane Warne
… the more have been your trials, look for a more perfect reward from your just Judge. Do not take your present troubles ill. Do not lose hope. Yet a little while and your Helper will come to you and will not tarry (cf. Hab. 2:3).
Saint Basil
Virginity is such a personal thing. You can’t judge anyone on it. A lot of young women feel they want to save themselves for the man who they think they’ll love forever.
Joyce Brothers
The right to dissent is the only thing that makes life tolerable for a judge of an appellate court… the affairs of government could not be conducted by democratic standards without it.
William O. Douglas
Never forget that if you leave your law to judges and your religion to bishops, you will presently find yourself without either law or religion.
George Bernard Shaw
I wish America would stop judging and criticizing teens and instead, try to understand the battles they have to fight every day.
Laurie Halse Anderson
Journalism, like history, has no therapeutic value; it is better able to diagnose than to cure, and it provides society with a primitive means of psychoanalysis that allows the patient to judge the distance between fantasy and reality.
Bill Vaughan
The way that other people judge me is none of my business.
Martha Beck
He is not to pass for a man of reason who stumbles upon reason by chance but he who knows it and can judge it and has a true taste for it.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
God judges what we give by what we keep.
George Muller
Everyone’s projecting onto you, or you feel like everyone is judging you. I feel like I’m being judged a lot of the time. You become really self-conscious.
Kate Moss
If once the people become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, Judges and Governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature, in spite of individual exceptions.
Thomas Jefferson
The good guys in my movies mind their own business and they don’t judge other people. And the bad guys are jealous, they judge other people without knowing the whole story, they want all the attention and they’re mean spirited. So I think my films are politically correct in a weird way.
John Waters
Furthermore, I think there was, in fact, a celebration of Passover in the era of the Judges in which the epic was recited in the context of the central sanctuary. That tradition was displaced by the Feast of Enthronement beginning in the Solomonic era.
Frank Moore Cross
If you don’t know me, don’t judge me.
Tupac Shakur
My desire to fight comes from within… it’s a personal journey of accomplishment, not meant to be judges or for me to judge others.
Cat Zingano
No man is allowed to be a judge in his own cause, because his interest would certainly bias his judgment.
James Madison
The common people do not judge of vice or virtue by morality or immorality, so much as by the stamp that is set upon it by men of figure.
Roger L’Estrange
You don’t have to live with anger, or sadness, or jealousy. You don’t have to judge yourself, make yourself guilty, and punish yourself.
Miguel Angel Ruiz
The worst thing you want is a willy-nilly judge who is swayed by the political whims of the era or the time. What you want is a judge who is thinking about what he or she is doing and is thinking about it in a principled way.
Sonia Sotomayor
For people who are really talented, what you don’t say becomes extremely important. You have to judge what to say and what to leave alone so you can let the talent develop.
Itzhak Perlman
It may have been a comedy, or it may have been a tragedy. It cost one man his reason, it cost me a blood-letting, and it cost yet another man the penalties of the law. Yet there was certainly an element of comedy. Well, you shall judge for yourselves.
Arthur Conan Doyle
Judge Roberts’ civil rights record and views remained the most controversial and unexplained part of his record when the Judiciary Committee hearing concluded, just as his civil rights record and views had been the most controversial part of his record when the hearing began.
Mel Watt
Despotism has so often been established in the name of liberty that experience should warn us to judge parties by their practices rather than their preachings.
Raymond Aron
Thou shalt be both the plaintiff and the judge of thine own cause.
William Shakespeare
Before you Judge me, Try hard to Love me
Michael Jackson
Everybody needs a little light in their life, and when they need prayer, they know where to come, because they know I love them all, and I ain’t judging nobody.
Betty Wright
Chief Justice [John] Roberts compared judges to umpires, who apply rules they did not write and cannot change to the competition before them.
Orrin Hatch
I only judge people by the depth of their squat.
Dan John
What I have found is that when we get to that still, small voice inside and begin to live by it, we see that that still, small voice doesn’t judge us the way we are being judged by others all the time.
Echo Bodine
Criminal court is where bad people are on their best behavior. It’s much more dangerous for lawyers and judges in family court, where good people are at their worst.
Richard Dooling
Concepts of justice must have hands and feet…to carry out justice in every case in the shortest possible time and the lowest possible cost. This is the challenge to every lawyer and judge in America.
Warren E. Burger
My feeling is, well, if it’s my money, I have a right to judge.
Rick Santorum
No one in America fully understands the constantly changing Internal Revenue Code. Agents of the IRS do not, judges do not, congressmen do not, and most assuredly taxpayers do not.
G. Edward Griffin
My first two books, Letters to a Young Brother and Letters to a Young Sister, were… distributed pretty widely. Judges in juvenile justice facilities started citing the book as required reading.
Hill Harper
No longer are there immutable standards by which to judge ourselves. Image has overtaken reality.
Barbara Goldsmith
If there is no absolute by which to judge society, society is absolute.
Francis Schaeffer
[O]ften art has judged the judges, pleaded revenge to the innocent and shown to the future what the past suffered, so that it has never been forgotten. . . .
John Berger
We are all the judges and the judged, victims of the casual malice and fantasy of others, and ready sources of fantasy and malice in our turn. And if we are sometimes accused of sins of which we are innocent, are there not also other sins of which we are guilty and of which the world knows nothing?
Iris Murdoch
Criminals are dumb as stumps. If they were smart they could go be investment bankers. Or judges.
Jeff Abbott

The criterion for judging whether a movie is successful or not is time.
Peter Bogdanovich
If he wakes up, I swear I’ll do anything. I’ll open gates, I’ll help all the paranormals, I’ll never judge people wearing Crocs again. Just let him wake up. Please.
Kiersten White
One must not judge other cultures by the standars of one’s one,’ said Aunt Hilda
Eva Ibbotson
We’re constantly taking pictures of ourselves. It’s a bit scary, because images are essentially dead, so we judge beauty on something that isn’t alive.
Elle Fanning
The number one idea is to view a stock as an ownership of the business and to judge the staying quality of the business in terms of its competitive advantage. Look for more value in terms of discounted future cash-flow than you are paying for. Move only when you have an advantage.
Charlie Munger
We judge other according to results; how else?–not knowing the process by which results are arrived at.
George Eliot
What you think you see and what you think a guy did wrong, maybe he did right. Or you see a touchdown pass, but the guy might’ve been wrong. Something crazy might have happened. You don’t know that. That’s the toughest thing when it comes to judging play on a football field.
Joe Flacco
If you want to be a great leader, you have to put the interest of the country above your own. I would like to think that true leadership is not just telling people what they want to hear but helping them understand things, so you can explain to them what you think is best, and then they can judge you on that.
Lynn Novick
When I go to one of those singles dating parties I believe myself to be a bowl of fruit. When I talk to potential dates, I judge them by the smile in their lips, their smoothness of speech, and the whiteness of teeth; then I offer them the appropriate fruit, which is usually a lemon.
Amanda Holden
We properly judge a critic’s virtue not by his freedom from error but by the nature of the mistakes he does make, for he makes them, if he is worth reading, because he has in mind something besides his perceptions about art in itself – he has in mind the demands that he makes upon life.
Lionel Trilling
When I am able to resist the temptation to judge others, I can see them as teachers of forgiveness in my life, reminding me that I can only have peace of mind when I forgive rather than judge.
Gerald Jampolsky
There exists a limit to the force even the most powerful may apply without destroying themselves. Judging this limit is the true artistry of government. Misuse of power is the fatal sin.
Frank Herbert
Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
Dalai Lama
Theme-park approach to nature. We judge plants and animals by whether they’re entertaining to us. We gravitate toward animals and plants that are big, dramatic, beautiful and at eye-level.
Gary Larson
The ultimate judge of your swing is the flight of the ball.
Ben Hogan
Yeah, the cut throats and the pigs. But who wants all that blood spilled, judge, huh? Isn’t there a simpler way of not pissing off the big vipers?
Al Swearengen
God does not judge us by the multitude of works we perform, but how well we do the work that is ours to do. The happiness of too many days is often destroyed by trying to accomplish too much in one day. We would do well to follow a common rule for our daily lives–DO LESS, AND DO IT BETTER.
Dale E. Turner
When Steve Wise told me that he intended to argue in court before a judge that an animal could be a “legal person,” it seemed like a novel, possibly far-fetched idea, but the more I thought about it, the more I became intrigued.
Chris Hegedus
But we’re born as children and we look at the world with open eyes… And we don’t judge and we don’t betray. We’re not jealous. We’re not envious. We’re not even weary, which is a danger also as kids. They have to learn a certain amount of awareness.
Colin Farrell
I’m not judging myself; I’m not dissing what I do. I’m proud of what I’ve done and I’m proud of what I’m working on. I’ve accomplished something and I’m not going to be ashamed to be happy about what I’ve done.
Nicki Minaj
A word of advice is, when you judge someone, it doesn’t define the person that you’re judging. It defines you.
Judges must beware of hard constructions and strained inferences, for there is no worse torture than that of laws.
Francis Bacon
We’ve voted in a government that’s rotting at the core, Appointing Godless Judges who throw reason out the door, Too soft to place a killer in a well deserved tomb, But brave enough to kill a baby before he leaves the womb.
Roy Moore
To say that subjects in general are not proper judges (of the law) when their governors oppress them and play the tyrant, and when they defend their rights …is as great a treason as ever a man uttered.
Jonathan Mayhew
The idea of scrolling is amazing because you could just bypass everybody’s whatever, but then whatever catches your eye – yeah, I don’t judge those people who tweet their breakfast, lunch and dinner but, I like to just use it for special occasions.
Tamlyn Tomita
Remove all the walls and curtains so you can get closer and purely love. Have principles but do not use them to exclude or to judge the others. Stay far from idols, specially from those you made from your own principles. Have a powerful faith, but do not play the powerful.
Shams Tabrizi
If our prayer is “Dear God, please use me to be of service,” then that is what we will be. And it is not for us to judge either the size or value of our gifts. Our job is to try to get out of the way, to defer to the spirit moving within us and become open channels for the flow of God’s love.
Marianne Williamson
Judging your early artistic efforts is artist abuse.
Julia Cameron
My favorite judge is Simon because he is brutally honest and he thinks I’m
Jordin Sparks
Judge Laurence Silberman explains the origins of his ruling against the ban on handguns in Washington, D.C. He explains, ‘It wasn’t a right to bear arms granted by the Constitution, it was a right that was protected by the Constitution.’
Laurence Silberman
I have never cared very deeply about the actual taste of my work. Let its essential odor satisfy my mind and senses, and I am content. I rarely judge by the grosser test of actual gustation … in cooking, to create a masterpiece for the nose alone – that is exquisite, that is Art!
Elinor Wylie
One drawback about judging on ‘MasterChef’ is that, as the series gets busier and busier and the food gets better, you take bigger and bigger mouthfuls of all that rich, sweet, fatty food, and we really put on weight.
Gregg Wallace
How can we judge fairly of the characters and merits of men, of the wisdom or folly of actions, unless we have . . . an accurate knowledge of all particulars, so that we may live as it were in the times, and among the persons, of whom we read, see with their eyes, and reason and decide on their premises?
William Wilberforce
Life takes us on different paths… It’s not up to us to evaluate or judge them, merely respect and embrace them. (Lara Lington – to Sadie Lancaster)
Sophie Kinsella
Judge your neighbor, write it down. Ask four questions, turn it around.
Byron Katie
It is almost certain that we will fail. But how will future history judge the German people, if not even a handful of men had the courage to put an end to that criminal?
Henning von Tresckow
To judge wisely, we must know how things appear to the unwise.
George Eliot
You can have many different selection systems, but the bottom line has to be a system that, once the judge takes office that judge will feel that he or she is to decide the case without reference to the popular thing or the popular will of the moment
Stephen Breyer
Judging others makes us blind, whereas love is illuminating. By judging others we blind ourselves to our own evil and to the grace which others are just as entitled to as we are.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
If you think it’s necessary to judge me by my past, don’t get mad when I put you there.
Wiz Khalifa
The very helplessness of the public which makes it necessary for them to consult the experts also makes it impossible for them to judge how expert they are.
Hugh Nibley
Children begin by loving their parents; after a time they judge them; rarely, if ever, do they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

We should not judge a man’s merits by his great qualities, but by the use he makes of them.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
We hang out, we help one another, we tell one another our worst fears and biggest secrets, and then just like real sisters, we listen and don’t judge.
Adriana Trigiani
Don’t judge me by my past. I don’t live there anymore
Zig Ziglar
You have the right to kill me, but you don’t have the right to judge me. That’s life. There’s nobility in that. There’s focus. It’s genuine. It’s crystal and it’s pure and it’s available to everybody, so just shut your traps and put down your McDonalds, your vaccines, your Us Weekly, your TMZ and the rest of it.
Charlie Sheen
There are very few good judges of humor, and they don’t agree.
Josh Billings
I cannot think well of a man who sports with any woman’s feelings; and there may often be a great deal more suffered than a stander-by can judge of.
Jane Austen
Laws … proportionate and mild should never be dispensed with. Let mercy be the character of the law-giver, but let the judge be a mere machine.
Thomas Jefferson
Unlike some, I don’t claim to hold the mystic key to the future. But judging from past events, it seems to me that those who want to prophesy the imminent end of America’s unique global role have a harder case to make than those who think we will limp on for a while, making a mess of things as usual.
Walter Russell Mead
Seems like there’s always someone who disapproves. They’ll judge it like they know about me and you.
Taylor Swift
Tell the FBI that the kidnappers should pick out a judge that Nixon wants back.
William O. Douglas
It is open to a war resister to judge between the combatants and wish success to the one who has justice on his side. By so judging he is more likely to bring peace between the two than by remaining a mere spectator.
Mahatma Gandhi
Gladly we desire to make other men perfect, but we will not amend our own fault.
Thomas a Kempis
I don’t judge people. I don’t even judge people on ‘The Voice.’ I’m a coach. I’m there for constructive criticism and to aid and abet and discover new talent.
Cee Lo Green
In a society that judges self-worth on productivity, it’s no wonder we fall prey to the misconception that the more we do, the more we’re worth
Ellen Stern
One Negro meeting another at an all-white cocktail party cannot but wonder how the other got there. The question is: Is he for real? Or is he just kissing ass? Almost all Negroes, are almost always acting, but before a white audience – which is quite incapable of judging their performance.
Michael Salu
A woman questions the man who loves exactly as a judge questions a criminal. This being so, a flash of the eye, a mere word, an inflection of the voice or a moment’s hesitation suffice to expose the fact, betrayal or crime he is attempting to conceal.
Honore de Balzac
But let no person say what they would or would not do, since we are not judges for ourselves until circumstances call us to act.
Abigail Adams
I know I’m not a showy politician… I don’t go drinking in parliament’s bars. I don’t wear my heart on my sleeve, I just get on with the job in front of me and you can judge me by my record.
Theresa May
Keep in mind that the tendency to be judgmental – toward yourself or another person – is a good barometer of how anxious or stressed out you are. Judging others is simply the flip side of judging yourself.
Harriet Lerner
God tells us not to judge one another, no matter what anyone’s sexual preferences are or if they’re black, brown or purple.
Dolly Parton
At the Olympics, there was a little bit of unfair judging, but I tried not to be disappointed and to do my best. I think the audience respected and loved what I did at the Olympics, and that helped me become the world champion in 1997.
Olena Vitrychenko
A sense of humor judges one’s actions and the actions of others from a wider reference. It pardons shortcomings, it consoles failure.
Thornton Wilder
The most important thing in playing any character is not judging.
Keira Knightley
Judge [Samuel] Alito should see criticism as a badge of honor worn by many past and present members of the Court.
Chuck Grassley
I am learning to understand rather than immediately judge or to be judged.
Bruce Lee
I am the worst judge of my books.
John Banville
Mon cher ami, let’s not give them any pretext, no matter how small, for judging us!!! Otherwise, we’ll be left in shreds. We are forced to take the same precautions as the animal trainer. If, before going into the cage, he has the misfortune to cut himself while shaving, what a feast for the wild animals!!
Albert Camus
They judge me like a picture book, by the colors, like they forgot to read.
Lana Del Rey
One of my good friends is Christian, goes to church every Sunday, very religious. I’m fine with that and I will never judge her.
Amber Tamblyn
It is simply not for us to judge each other. The Lord has reserved that right for Himself, because only He knows our hearts and understands the varying circumstances and complexities of our lives.
Sheri L. Dew
Human beings judge one another by their external actions. God judges them by their moral choices.
C. S. Lewis
If I’m being forced to do something I don’t want to do, my real self comes out. But whether or not I’m aware of it, no matter what happens, I’m always going to have a fake self and I’m not going to judge my fake self.
Benjamin Clementine
It would have been easy to judge effort by how many hours a day passed while I was at work. That’s the worst way to measure effort. Effort is measured by setting goals and getting results.
Mark Cuban
To judge from the notions expounded by theologians, one must conclude that God created most men simply with a view to crowding hell.
Marquis de Sade
Judge not, lest ye be judged judgmental.
Florence King
I have this tattooed on my left side! I love the saying and it’s a perfect description of Karma, don’t judge/discriminate and don’t do to someone what you wouldn’t want done to you.
The marriage of convenience has this to recommend it: we are better judges of convenience than we are of love.
Mignon McLaughlin
I am going to judge my circumstances by Jesus’ love, not Jesus’ love by my circumstances.

I personally am opposed to abortion, but I will not judge anybody else’s right in that regard because I am not a woman and I could never face the actual reality of it.
Martin Sheen
Judges, like the criminal classes, have their lighter moments
Oscar Wilde
Bad critics judge a work of art by comparing it to pre-existing theories. They always go wrong when confronted with a masterpiece because masterpieces make their own rules.
Robert Anton Wilson
When I am able to resist the temptation to judge others, I can see them as teachers.
Gerald Jampolsky
I judge all things only by the price they shall gain in eternity.

Absent scandal, a federal judge can serve for decades on the bench, underscoring the importance of appointing judges who have a proper understanding of their constitutional role.
Paul Weyrich
I became tired of submitting my art to a panel of corporate strategists who decide if it meets their standard of what gets into stores or not. It was quite simple for me: they act like judge and jury of my art, and that is unacceptable. I wanted to give it right to the public.
Chuck D
Mike Judge, who I’ve become friends with over the years never took himself seriously as an artist.
Bill Griffith
Neil Gorsuch represents the type of judge that has the vision of Donald Trump and it fulfills the promise that he made to all of you and to all Americans across the country.
Reince Priebus
I love a woman, I love to judge how beautiful she is, how beautiful I can make her.

Olivier Rousteing
One must be a god to be able to tell successes from failures without making a mistake.
Anton Chekhov
He never sleeps, the judge. He is dancing, dancing. He says that he will never die.
Cormac McCarthy
When I was a rookie, Cy Young used to hit me flies to sharpen my abilities to judge in advance the direction and distance of an outfield-hit ball.
Tris Speaker
I wonder what sentences judges might hand down at future international criminal tribunals on those who will be partially but directly responsible for millions of deaths from starvation, famine, and disease in the decades ahead.
Mark Lynas
God looks at the heart, and we shouldn’t judge by appearance . . . but we still live on the earth, and everyone here looks at the exterior, because only God sees the interior.
Nancy Leigh DeMoss
I ask you not to judge me for my weakness. The only way I can endure is to be in a place where I will never see you, never be haunted by the possibility of seeing you with him. I need to be somewhere where sheer necessity forces you from my thoughts minute by minute, hour by hour, I cannot do that here.
Joanna Noelle Levesque
I’m starting to judge success by the time I have for myself, the time I spend with family and friends. My priorities aren’t amending; they’re shifting.
Brendan Fraser
So with truth – there is a certain moment when one can say, this is the truth and here I put a dot, a stop, and I go to another thing. A judge has to put an end to a deliberation. But for a historian, theres never an end to the past. It can go on and on and on.
A. B. Yehoshua
People are always going to identify with what it’s like living in society and have people judge you in certain ways, and how you can be strong enough to be your own person and all those good things.
Alessandro Nivola
When I go up there, which is my intention, the Big Judge will say to me, Where are your wounds? and if I say I haven’t any, he will say, Was there nothing to fight for? I couldn’t face that question. (Ah, But Your Land Is Beautiful)
Alan Paton
Four things belong to a judge: to hear courteously, to answer wisely, to consider soberly, and to decide impartially.
Everyone judges constantly: positively judging one person is the same as negatively judging everyone else; it is to say that that person is superior in some sense.
Criss Jami
The hitter can never be the judge. Only the receiver of the blow can tell you how hard it was, whether it would kill a man or make a baby just yawn.
Edward P. Jones
Bridges are happy, because they do not judge those who come to them.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
The Constitution is what the judges say it is.

Meryl Streep
I never speak ill of dead people or live judges.
Edwin Edwards
And I guess you judge how well you’re doing by how well you sleep at night… and what your dreams are like.

Lady Gaga
People love to judge, get used to it and stop taking it personally.

O God and Lord, now the council condemns even Your own act and Your own law as heresy, since You Yourself did lay Your cause before Your Father as the just judge, as an example for us, whenever we are sorely oppressed.
Jan Hus
I used to be a partier, now I’m an alcoholic. It’s all in who’s judging you.
Doug Stanhope

Nicolas Malebranche
Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.
Albert Einstein
I think an awful lot of the reasons people put forward for not liking Hillary Clinton play into deep-seated, negative female stereotypes: ambition, secrecy, calculating. I mean, that is Lady Macbeth, a kind of cold woman. I don’t think that’s Hillary. And I don’t think people would judge a man in the same way.
Anne-Marie Slaughter
The world at large does not judge us by who we are and what we know; it judges us by what we have.
Joyce Brothers

Dahlia Lithwick
As for his name, well, what attorney wouldn’t want to be able put a Judge in a crate every now and then?
Jodi Picoult
I wasn’t hired to be a moral judge. I wasn’t hired to be a preacher or an evangelist. I’m hired to apply the law.
Frank Minis Johnson
Maintain your relationships – for all kinds of reasons, friends are vital. Good friends, supportive friends, friends who won’t judge you or try to take advantage of you.
Peter Kinderman
One thing, however, is certain. Although we may never know with complete certainty the identity of the winner of this year’s presidential election, the identity of the loser is perfectly clear. It is the nation’s confidence in the judge as an impartial guardian of the rule of law.
John Paul Stevens
Friends and family are vitally important for an individual who is struggling to return to the gospel path. Those around such a person must refrain from judging. They must do all they can to show love.
M. Russell Ballard
There are only shades of gray. Black and white are nothing more than lofty ideals in our minds, the standards by which we try to judge things, and map out our place in the world in relevance to them.
Karen Marie Moning
I got more shy as I got older and realized people could be laughing at me or judging me.
Missy Elliott
I was definitely always the bigger girl and kind of weird. I didn’t make friends very easily and I was a big reader, so I was very antisocial, and I knew that people were judging me.
Shannon Purser
[American’s government] thinking they are the judge of the world; they’re not.
Bashar al-Assad
I think it’s true that we shouldn’t apply a strict litmus test and the most important thing in any judge is their capacity to provide fairness and justice to the American people.
Barack Obama
In the twilight of life, God will not judge us on our earthly possessions and human success, but rather on how much we have loved.
John of the Cross
Radio stations have constructed a narrow door[way], and that’s because they don’t understand how complex and paradoxical our snap judgments are. It’s hard to measure new songs.
Malcolm Gladwell
We cannot judge of the fact, but the law upon the fact.
Chris Pratt
She didn’t judge him or hate him for things that weren’t his fault. She accepted him and that was the greatest miracle of all.
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Have faith in who you are. Believe that you will recover, and it will truly happen. And don’t judge yourself too harshly. Some things are meant to be, and you had to fall so that later you may rise and become what you are truly meant to be.
Joseph Delaney
A man is morally free when, in full possession of his living humanity, he judges the world, and judges other men, with uncompromising sincerity.
George Santayana
I feel like I always learn when I’m writing, even when I’m not writing about myself. I’m careful not to judge; I try to internalize and empathize with the characters. Stepping into that person’s shoes is transformative. It changes you. Looking at my own life, it’s also humbling to write.
Sarah Gerard
You know, a man always judges himself by the balance he can strike between the needs of his body and the demands of his mind. You’re judging yourself now, Mersaut, and you don’t like the sentence.
Albert Camus
The author himself is the best judge of his own performance; none has so deeply meditated on the subject; none is so sincerely interested in the event.
Edward Gibbon
Today we live in a world that judges its achievements by speed and busyness. В… We are so busy making things happen that we have little time left to think about the value of what is happening. We urgently need people who concentrate on the meaning of life rather than simply the speed.

In our system of government, the judicial and legislative branches have different roles. Judges are not politicians. Judges must decide cases, not champion causes. Judges must settle legal disputes, not pursue agendas. Judges must interpret and apply the law, not make the law.
Orrin Hatch
Through knowledge we behold the world’s creation, How in his cradle first he fostered was; And judge of Nature’s cunning operation, How things she formed of a formless mass.
Edmund Spenser
I want to state upfront, unequivocally and without doubt: I do not believe that any racial, ethnic or gender group has an advantage in sound judging. I do believe that every person has an equal opportunity to be a good and wise judge, regardless of their background or life experiences.
Sonia Sotomayor
One thing I am sure of is that I won’t judge a dance reality show.
I don’t judge others. I say if you feel good with what you’re doing, let your freak flag fly.
Sarah Jessica Parker
It is better that a judge should lean on the side of compassion than severity.
Miguel de Cervantes
In the visual arts, particularly painting, I distrust all those abstractions, those artificial constructions. I have a very simple way of judging them: if I can do them, they are not art.
F. Sionil Jose
Forbear to judge, for we are sinners all.
William Shakespeare
I wouldn’t judge people on their instant responses.
Rob Brown
You that would judge me, do not judge alone this book or that, come to this hallowed place where my friends’ portraits hang and look thereon; Ireland’s history in their lineaments trace; think where man’s glory most begins and ends and say my glory was I had such friends.
William Butler Yeats
Evil is the product of the ability of humans to make abstract that which is concrete.
Jean-Paul Sartre
… We’re werewolves. We don’t get to judge ‘crazy.
Carrie Vaughn
There is no fear of judgment for the man who judges himself according to the Word of God.
Howard G. Hendricks
We respect the role of the Senate. We respect the authority of the Senate to look at the qualifications of Judge Roberts, and at the end of the day I’m optimistic that if given a fair hearing and a fair opportunity, that he will be confirmed.
Alberto Gonzales
When we have sold our identity to the judges of this world, we are bound to become restless, because of a growing need for affirmation and praise.
Henri Nouwen
I think the scores for Olympic gymnastics are affected by what countries the judge and the gymnast are from. That’s wrong. That type of political pandering isn’t meant for gymnastic Olympic events. It’s meant for the Supreme Court.
Craig Ferguson
You must not judge people by their country. In South America, it is always wise to judge people by their altitude.
Paul Theroux
If you can manipulate news, a judge can manipulate the law. A smart lawyer can keep a killer out of jail, a smart accountant can keep a thief from paying taxes, a smart reporter could ruin your reputation – unfairly.
Mario Cuomo
To judge from all Communist papers, magazines and brochures, and from all public assemblies, one might even surmise that a revolt of the poor peasants in Western Europe might break out at any moment!
Herman Gorter
People are starting to understand the other side’s perspective and that’s where empathy can sort of begin – once you quit judging other people but just understand where they’re coming from.
Sterling K. Brown
My credibility is zero. My wife claims she can go before any judge at any time and have me committed.
Alan Abel
Who can judge another man’s suffering?
Janet Fitch
I don’t read for amusement, I read for enlightenment. I do a lot of reviewing, so I have a steady assignment of reading. I’m also a judge for the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, which gives awards to literature and nonfiction.
Joyce Carol Oates
It is very different hosting and judging a show like ‘Love School’; it was unlike acting in a movie or series or being part of a reality show. But I keep telling myself that I have just one life, and I have to make the most of it.
Karishma Tanna
All my life I have painted pictures so that certain people would drop dead when they looked at them, but I have not succeeded yet. The worst painting cant hurt you, but a bad driver can kill you, a bad judge can send you to the chair, a bad politician can ruin an entire country, That is why even a bad painting is sacred.
Man Ray
And I loathe people who find it harder to put up with a gown askew than with a soul askew and who judge a man by his bow, his bearing and his boots.
Michel de Montaigne
I am praetor of the legion,” Reyna said. “I judge this to be in the best interest of Rome.” “To get yourself killed? To break our oldest laws and travel to the Ancient Lands? How will you even find their ship, assuming you survive the journey?” [Octavian] “I will find them,” Reyna said.
Rick Riordan
Listening to both sides does not necessarily bring about a correct judgment.
Donald Rumsfeld
I start thinking:
How many souls hip-hop has affected?
How many dead folks this art resurrected?
How many nations this culture connected?
Who am I to judge one’s perspective?
When you feel like some people will turn their back on you, judge you so much, you just have to keep going and you can keep going with your life. There are so many things that you can touch on really.
La’el Collins
“I Don’t Want to Miss A Thing” is a hard song to perform, I was worried that I was not going to reach that significant note that is at the end of the song. Thank god, Steven loved it! He was the nicest and friendliest judge that I have met. He also invited me to chat with him whether I had free time on the Idol set.
Jessica Sanchez
We dance to reclaim our brilliant ability to disappear in something bigger, something safe, a space without a critic or a judge or an analyst.
Gabrielle Roth
It especially annoys me when racists are accused of ‘discrimination.’ The ability to discriminate is a precious faculty; by judging all members on one ‘race’ to be the same, the racist precisely shows himself incapable of discrimination.
Christopher Hitchens
Ethics and equity and the principles of justice do not change with the calendar.
D. H. Lawrence
We have to judge presidents not only by the long-term consequences of their actions but also by how they make citizens in their own day feel. One reason that Nixon never succeeded in his comeback campaign is that he had such a negative impact on public trust at the time of his presidency.
David Greenberg
I am in the valley of prayer on the issue of gay marriage, and I will err on the side of inclusiveness and not exclusion. I’m going to follow Jesus and say, Whosoever will, let them come. And I’m going to extend rights to all of God’s children and if I am wrong, God will have to judge me.
Joseph Lowery
Don’t get caught up in how many hours you work. Judge success based on having goals and measuring your results. Hard work, and lots of it, is certainly needed, but focus on what you get done.
Mark Cuban
What? You’re thinking for yourself? You’re deciding on your own? You’re applying your own yardsticks, your own judgments, your own values? Who do you think you are, anyway? And, indeed, that is precisely the question you are answering.
Neale Donald Walsch
Are people the best judges of their own happiness, or outsiders? In defining happiness, should we think of entire lives or of shorter periods such as moments, days, or years? And to what extent are virtue and happiness linked?
Sissela Bok
Above all, God wanted us to love others. We have to love each other and get on with each other, she added. It’s not up to me to judge anybody.
Carrie Underwood
Any woman can fool a man if she wants to and if he’s in love with her.
Agatha Christie
It seems impossible, in fact, to judge the eye using any word other than seductive, since nothing is more attractive in the bodies of animals and men. But extreme seductiveness is probably at the boundary of horror.
Georges Bataille
After all, our Constitution was intended as a popular document. It was drafted and ratified by the people. It established democratic institutions. It entrusts the people with the power to make the tough decisions. And, in most cases, it prefers the will of the people to the unchecked rule of judges.
Mike DeWine
To see both sides of a quarrel, is to judge without hate or alarm
Richard Thompson
The superiority of one man’s opinion over another’s is never so great as when the opinion is about a woman.
Henry James
I don’t judge those who can’t dream, those who need to pierce their arms to create different worlds under their skin, because I am fortunate in the tools of my escapes
Rawi Hage
There are two devices which can help the sculptor to judge his work: one is not to see it for a while. The other… is to look at his work through spectacles which will change its color and magnify or diminish it, so as to disguise it somehow to his eye, and make it look as though it were the work of another.
Gian Lorenzo Bernini
But it seems that the judging maybe they shouldn’t at least see the practices all week long. That can taint the way they go into the judging and the outlook of what’s going to happen, instead of just watching those four minutes and judging on those minutes alone.
Nancy Kerrigan
I never felt that the naming issue was all that important, but I was obviously wrong, judging by how many people felt. I tell people to call it just plain Linux and nothing more.
Linus Torvalds
I never met the second happiest man, or the first happiest man, so I can’t judge where I fall into that category.
Jamie Farr
Since the invention of the flush toilet and the vacuum carpet cleaner, the modern man seems to judge a man’s moral standards by his cleanliness, and thinks a dog the more highly civilized for having a weekly bath and a winter wrapper round his belly.
Lin Yutang
Judging by informal observation, most young Americans burn up their spare time buffing their emotional IQ and self-esteem with social media and non-stop texting. That’s great for eye-thumb coordination, but what about the satisfaction of actually making something?
Seth Shostak
There’s not much a newspaper reporter can do about dead men. But a newspaper reporter and a cop and a judge can deliver some justice. That’s why the founding fathers wrote it up the way they did, I suppose. Life. Liberty. Pursuit of happiness. Everyone is entitled to those things.
Charlie LeDuff
I put myself in a position of authority where if I get judged, I get scrutinized. So if I get caught slipping, than I have to reap the repercussions of it. That is the game I’m in and people will judge you, you just have to get over it.
Damon Dash
To live is in itself a value judgment. To breathe is to judge.
Albert Camus
Education in Chess has to be an education in independent thinking and judging. Chess must not be memorized.
Emanuel Lasker
A negative judgment gives you more satisfaction than praise, provided it smacks of jealousy.
Jean Baudrillard
You can judge a leader by the size of the problem he tackles… Other people can cope with the waves, it’s his job to watch the tide.
Antony Jay
To judge human character rightly, a man may sometimes have very small experience, provided he has a very large heart.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
History teaches the young the virtues of freedom. By apprising them of the past it will enable them to judge the future.
Thomas Jefferson
Judge [Samuel Alito], there’s a genuine struggle going on well beyond you, well beyond the Congress, in America about how to read the Constitution.
Joe Biden
A corrupt judge does not carefully search for the truth.
I’m really shy and I’m scared of people judging me.
Rupali Ganguly
I was just ice skating. I had no concept of that. In those days you couldn’t see the judges. I was this little person on the ice and they were just people that would stand around the boards.
Dorothy Hamill
Inquire often, but judge rarely, and thou wilt not often be mistaken.
William Penn
By judging others, you make yourself easy to judge.
Ashly Lorenzana
This is a very, very conservative judge who in his dissenting opinions is overwhelmingly likely to be more conservative than the majority.
Cass Sunstein
Whether a tops-down or bottoms-up investor in bonds, stocks, or private equity, the standard analysis tends to judge an investor or his firm on the basis of how the bullish or bearish aspects of the cycle were managed.
Bill Gross
The most certain test by which we judge whether a country is really free is the amount of security enjoyed by minorities.
Lord Acton
The Bible says, Judge not lest ye be judged. Our lives are supposed to be hospitals, not courtrooms.
Tammy Faye Bakker
When it comes to judging individuals, I do not like remarks such as ‘too good to be true.’ They speak as though one is rewarding the nature of evil. Yet, ironically, we still wonder where all the good people have gone.
Criss Jami
It’s just like nurses in a hospital tend to know more than the doctors most of the time; if you really want to get the answers to a question about court, you should spend more time buttering up the clerks than the judges.
Jodi Picoult
Gently to hear, kindly to judge.
William Shakespeare
Yoga aims to bring about a situation where the mind is quieter and more effective. It’s not only about relaxation, it’s also about improving our energy. It’s about making us more decisive and at the same time better able to judge a situation clearly.
Paul Harvey
In the 1970s, for all the Stevie Wonders, I’m sure there were five artists that were making forgettable music.
John Legend
Taste is the best judge. It is rare. Art only addresses itself to an excessively small number of individuals.
Paul Cezanne
None of us has ever seen a motive. Therefore, we don’t know we can’t do anything more than suspect what inspires the action of another. For this good and valid reason, we’re told not to judge. Tragedy is that our attention centers on what people are not, rather than on what they are and who they might become.
Brennan Manning
To be at acting school, it was kind of the first time you felt the freedom to be as much of yourself as you wanted. People weren’t going to judge you.
Michael Imperioli
The common people are but ill judges of a man’s merits; they are slaves to fame, and their eyes are dazzled with the pomp of titles and large retinue. No wonder, then, that they bestow their honors on those who least deserve them.
Opinions are a private matter. The public has an interest only in judgments.
Walter Benjamin
We should evaluate judges and judicial nominees based on the general process for applying the law to any legal disputes, not on the specific result in a particular case or dispute.
Orrin Hatch
I think the public will judge if stardom has gotten into my head.
Majid Michel
We do not judge great art. It judges us.
Caroline Gordon
Perhaps the enemies of liberty are such only because they judge it by its loud voice.
Jose Marti
I think we need to start with Philadelphia and make sure that we actually get some election reform in Philadelphia. Actually, a recent election was thrown out by a federal judge because of corruption with the voting process in Philadelphia.
Patrick McHenry
One can’t judge Wagner’s opera Lohengrin after a first hearing, and I certainly don’t intend to hear it a second time.
Gioachino Rossini
Thus we should beware of clinging to vulgar opinions, and judge things by reason’s way, not by popular say.
Michel de Montaigne
We justify ourselves when we should judge ourselves. If we learned humility, it might spare us the humiliation.
Vance Havner
Be strong, believe in freedom and in God, love yourself, understand your sexuality, have a sense of humor, masturbate, don’t judge people by their religion, color or sexual habits, love life and your family.
Madonna Ciccone
It is a trial within a nation but a trial of victors against the vanquished. Even before the trials started, the victors who are our judges were quite convinced that we were guilty and that we should all pay the price.
Julius Streicher
The great tides and currents which engulf the rest of men do not turn aside in their course and pass the judges by.
Benjamin Cardozo
I would never dream of telling people how to dress. but I do say to them, however you are dressing, accept responsibility for it. And also, unless asked, I don’t judge. And if asked to judge – I would approach it socratically, I would approach it with questions.
Tim Gunn
Cheerleading is a part of you. You live it all the time. People will judge you based upon it, but you can’t be ashamed because although they may make fun of you, they are just jealous that you are on of the elite, the superior, the best… a cheerleader!
Kacy Catanzaro
No reason for a feverish rush For we will all arrive in the same place At the right time. Justice will be served. There will be no better or worse, No big and small, no rewards, no punishment, No guilt, no judges, no hierarchies; Only silent equality.
Dejan Stojanovic
If you’re not grown up enough to understand that a trailer is not done by the director, then fine. Judge the movie from the trailer.
Michel Gondry
I think Nelly [Ternan] actually has something very conservative about her, and she’s very judgmental of (this other character’s) situation, and can see that’s about to happen to herself. So she judges it even more harshly [because] it’s what she fears becoming.
Felicity Jones
I don’t judge people by their theology, I judge them by their behavior
Dennis Prager
Stupidity is the same as evil if you judge by the results.
Margaret Atwood
He cannot be strict in judging, who does not wish others to be strict judges of himself.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
It’s really never fair to judge people because none of us know what’s going on inside anyone else’s head.
Tom Ford
Any judicial nominee who has said that the Constitution means what it says, not what judges would like it to mean, is going to be called an ‘extremist.’ That person will be said to be ‘out of the mainstream.’ But the mainstream is itself the problem.
Thomas Sowell
I have no faith in my ability to judge things.
Ozzy Osbourne
You ultimately judge the civility of a society not by how it treats the rich, the powerful, the protected and the highly esteemed, but by how it treats the poor, the disfavored and the disadvantaged.
Bryan Stevenson
To see the world is to judge the judges.
Joseph Joubert
Criticism exists only to recognize the truth, not to act as judge.
Carl von Clausewitz
Judge [Samuel] Alito has a reputation for being an exceptional and honest judge devoted to the rule of law, as well as being a man of integrity.
Chuck Grassley
As a player, that’s not your responsibility to comment and to give your opinion on another player. As a quarterback, I don’t want another quarterback tweeting about my performance or judging me in that way.
Eli Manning
Just because I’m telling a story about a woman losing faith is not my rebellion against what I grew up in. If anything, it really affected the way I approached the story, and in fact, approach everything. I don’t judge my characters.
Vera Farmiga
Whoever can discern truth has received his commission from a higher source than the chiefest justice in the world who can discernonly law. He finds himself constituted judge of the judge. Strange that it should be necessary to state such simple truths!
Henry David Thoreau
My greatest talent is calmness and being positive. I concentrate on what you can do even in the worst of times. You don’t judge by last week’s errors or lost opportunity.
Joe Torre
Judges are the weakest link in our system of justice and they are also the most protected.
Alan Dershowitz
While a defeat for Obamacare in the Court would be nice, the defeat of President Obama at the polls on November 6 is crucial. If electoral victory is achieved, Obamacare can and will be repealed – and more judges of a constitutionalist persuasion will be appointed by the next president.
William Kristol
Judging others’ intentions is the right of God alone. We don’t have this right, and it is poor manners with God.
Habib Ali al-Jifri
Every reality before your eyes was once imagined in the mind of one person. No matter who judges or knocks your dream, pay no attention to them. Instead, create what you imagine, and you will then be amazed at the Divine creative capacity you do have that will be well remembered for serving others.
Barbara Rose
I judge a woman and a horse by the same criteria: legs, head and rear end.
Elizabeth Arden
We’re all the harshest judges of ourselves.
Susan Anton
Fools measure actions, after they are done, by the event; wise men beforehand, by the rules of reason and right. The former look to the end, to judge of the act. Let me look to the act, and leave the end with God.
Joseph Hall
We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus – whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?
Phil Robertson
The one thing you can give God that will truly impress God is freindship. God is an eternal companion who is with you all the time – never judges, just is.
Frederick Lenz
Don’t judge a man by where he is, because you don’t know how far he has come.
C. S. Lewis
I don’t think I made it clear where I was mentally when I appeared on ‘X Factor.’ There was so much pressure and a lot of judging. But I wanted to take a chance on the show because I wanted to make something of myself. ‘X Factor’ seemed like the only way out.
James Arthur
And judging what is appropriate or not appropriate for a country, I think it is important in particular in judging what is the appropriate economic policy framework, one should take into account the overall political environment and the institutional framework within which economic policy operates.
Lucas Papademos
The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse: You cannot post “Thou shalt not steal,” “Thou shalt not commit adultery,” and “Thou shalt not lie” in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.
George Carlin
I’m afraid, is that there are a number of groups who really don’t want a fair-minded judge who has an openness to both sides of the argument. Rather, they want judges who will impose their liberal agenda on the American people; views so liberal that they cannot prevail at the ballot box.
John Cornyn
We think that it is the best scientists working in the frontier fields of science who are best able to judge what is good and what is bad – if any – in the application of their scientific research.
Kenichi Fukui
Everyone else is too busy judging themselves to be thinking badly of you.
Darren Hayes
Arbitrary power is the natural object of temptation to a prince, as wine and women to a young fellow, or a bribe to a judge, or avarice to old age.
Jonathan Swift
What is failure? We can’t possibly know what failure is. Most people think they do, but that’s because they’re judging how their lives should be and what they need it to be: a success. Who is to say what’s a success and what’s a failure? Do your best. Trust. Relax. Do your best. Enjoy yourself.
Gary Zukav
It is surely only a matter of time before some federal judge finds the Constitution unconstitutional.
Mark Steyn
We must judge of a form of government by it’s general tendency, not by happy accidents
Thomas B. Macaulay
Some criticize me, thinking I’m too tolerant of the clerical regime in Iran. In response, I have to say, I have served time in prison, I have lost my position [as a judge]. Do I need to prove that I am brave? Do I need to be killed?
Shirin Ebadi
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world. What you see reflects your thinking. And your thinking but reflects your choice of what you want to see. If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Helen Schucman
I think my independence was a big help to getting Judges Roberts and Alito confirmed, and I think that’s recognized.
Arlen Specter
Poets and men of action differ: the former yield to their feelings in order to reproduce them in lively colors, and therefore judge only ex post facto; the latter feel and judge at one and the same time.
Honore de Balzac
If we judge our lives by what we know or by what we say, we can easily deceive ourselves into thinking that we are something we are not; it is wiser to evaluate ourselves by the amount of truth we actually live. This is very humbling.
Paul Washer
If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge him? The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains this very well. It says they should not be marginalized because of this (orientation) but that they must be integrated into society. The problem is not having this orientation. We must be brothers.
Pope Francis
Each of us is full of too many wheels, screws and valves to permit us to judge one another on a first impression or by two or three external signs.
Anton Chekhov
How would you judge an artist who mutilated animals in a gallery because it was visually arresting? How riveting would the sound of a tortured animal need to be to make you want to hear it that badly? Try to imagine any end other than taste for which it would be justifiable to do what we do to farmed animals.
Jonathan Safran Foer
There is nothing that deceives us more than our own judgment when used to give an opinion on our own works. It is sound in judging the work of our enemies but not that of our friends, for hate and love are two of the most powerfully motivating factors found among living things.
Leonardo da Vinci
Let judges secretly despair of justice: their verdicts will be more acute. Let generals secretly despair of triumph; killing will be defamed. Let priests secretly despair of faith: their compassion will be true.
Leonard Cohen
We judge matters so superficially that ordinary acts and words, done and spoken with some flair and some knowledge of worldly matters, often succeed better than the greatest cleverness.
Madeleine de Souvre, marquise de Sable
I always thought I could coach. I just thought people were poor judges of good coaches.
Bum Phillips
After all, it is style alone by which posterity will judge of a great work, for an author can have nothing truly his own but his style.
Isaac D’Israeli
Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is.
Leigh Brackett
I will tell you, I’m a lousy cook, but I think I’m a pretty good judge of a good meal.
Barney Frank
The more you judge, the less you love.
Honore de Balzac
When you judge others, the issue is almost always with you.
Ray Torres
I hope people stop judging others by blindly following rumors.
Sara Khan
Don’t judge someone until you’ve stood at his forge and worked with his hammer, eh?
Rick Riordan
Had the jury convicted on proper instructions it would be the end of the matter. But juries are not bound by what seems inescapable logic to judges.
Robert H. Jackson
I got nothing against the honest cop on the beat. You just have them transferred someplace where they can’t do you any harm. But don’t ever talk to me about the honor of police captains or judges. If they couldn’t be bought they wouldn’t have the job.
Al Capone
Dress for success. Image is very important. People judge you by the way you look on the outside.
Brian Tracy
I want judges on the Supreme Court who will not use that position to impose their personal policy preferences or political agenda on the American people.
John Cornyn
The job of a judge is to figure out what the law says, not what he wants it to say. There is a difference between the role of a judge and that of a policy maker… Judging requires a certain impartiality.
Clarence Thomas
The courage of federal Judge Frank Johnson is well-known.He was the one that gave the legal authority for the right to march from Selma to Montgomery, and he suffered dearly for it. He was ostracized and rejected. His life was threatened as a result of it.
Dick Durbin
All judges had rather that ten innocent should suffer than that one guilty should escape.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Blessed are those who do not fear solitude, who are not afraid of their own company, who are not always desperately looking for something to do, something to amuse themselves with, something to judge.
Paulo Coelho
The condition of women affords in all countries the best criterion by which to judge the character of men.
Frances Wright
The punishment of death is the war of a nation against a citizen whose destruction it judges to be necessary or useful.
Cesare Beccaria
I’ll be the judge of my own manliness.
Dennis Rodman
Like Andy Warhol and unlike God Almighty, Larry King does not presume to judge; all celebrities are equal in his eyes, saints and sinners alike sharing the same ‘Love Boat’ voyage into the dark beyond, a former sitcom star as deserving of pious send-off as Princess Diana.
James Wolcott
The decisions I made are done. And history will judge whether or not they were correct. There’s no such thing as accurate short-term history.
George W. Bush
Each of us seems to have a main focus, a particular idea of practicality – a concept of ‘what we want out of life’ against which we judge our experiences.
Jane Roberts
There are people who are afraid to go to confession, forgetting that they will not encounter a severe judge there, but the immensely merciful Father.
Pope Francis
We’ve had a number of economists supporting our legislation. And here’s where we are. The American people can judge. Six largest financial institutions in America today have assets of roughly $10 trillion; equivalent to 58 percent of the GDP of the United States of America.
Bernie Sanders
I think I have one answer, that is partly religious and partly secular; and that is to say, we ought to at least recognize that we and the Russians are in a common predicament. That would be religious in the sense, “Judge not lest you be judged.”
Reinhold Niebuhr
Sex wasn’t God’s big mistake. Judging against sex was humanity’s big mistake. Pleasure is as divine as any cathedral, any temple.
Deepak Chopra
Take no thought of who is right or wrong or who is better than. Be not for or against.
Bruce Lee
The fear of the judge within is more terrible than that of the one without.
Mahatma Gandhi
We can never judge a soul above the high water mark of our own.
Maurice Maeterlinck
It is the function of a judge not to make but to declare the law, according to the golden mete-wand of the law and not by the crooked cord of discretion.
Edmund Burke
After all, a district judge who gives harsh sentences to Yankees fans and lenient sentences to Red Sox fans would not be acting reasonably even if her procedural rulings were impeccable.
John Paul Stevens
It’s disingenuous and wrong to say that the attorney general’s expanded powers in the Patriot Act come with adequate oversight by the courts, … In reality, the most troubling provisions in the law make judges little more than rubber stamps in Justice Department investigations.
Anthony Romero
The judge’s authority derives entirely from the fact that he is applying the law and not his personal values. That is why the American public accepts the decisions of its courts, accepts even decisions that nullify the laws a majority of the electorate or their representatives voted for.
Robert Bork
In order to judge of the form to be given to this institution the Senate, it will be proper to take a view of the ends to be served by it. These were,first, to protect the people against their rulers, secondly, to protect the people against the transient impressions into which they themselves might be led.
James Madison
Our entire judicial system in Liberia has broken down because of the many years of lawlessness, indiscipline and warfare. We need more training to get more qualified judges. We need infrastructural reforms. All of our laws need to be re-examined by a law reform commission.
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
While the censorious man is most severe in judging others, he is invariably the most ready to repel any animadversions made upon himself…
Elias Lyman Magoon
Heaven is above all yet; there sits a judge, That no king can corrupt.
William Shakespeare
Capitalism stands its trial before judges who have the sentence of death in their pockets. They are going to pass it, whatever the defense they may hear; the only success victorious defense can possibly produce is a change in the indictment.
Joseph A. Schumpeter
For Heaven’s sake discard the monstrous wig which makes the English judges look like rats peeping through bunches of oakum.
Thomas Jefferson
As, for the safety of society, we commit honest maniacs to Bedlam, so judges should be withdrawn from their bench, whose erroneous biases are leading us to dissolution. It may indeed injure them in fame or in fortune; but it saves the republic, which is the first and supreme law.
Thomas Jefferson
[Malipiero’s advice to Casanova.] If you wish your audience to cry, you must shed tears yourself, but if you wish to make them laugh you must contrive to look as serious as a judge.
Giacomo Casanova
My father basically had two ways of judging anything. Either something was poetic or it wasn’t.
Bernardo Bertolucci
What is slander? A verdict of “guilty” pronounced in the absence of the accused, with closed doors, without defence or appeal, by an interested and prejudiced judge.
Philibert Joseph Roux
We appeal, not to those who reject today in the name of a return to yesterday, not to those who are hopelessly deafened by today; we appeal to those who see the distant tomorrow — and judge today in the name of tomorrow.
Yevgeny Zamyatin
But history will judge you, and as the years pass, you will ultimately judge yourself, in the extent to which you have used your gifts and talents to lighten and enrich the lives of your fellow men. In your hands lies the future of your world and the fulfillment of the best qualities of your own spirit.
Robert Kennedy
I can’t judge the way other people behave. I can only look at myself.
Cyndi Lauper
Think before you speak. Think before you judge. Think before you think you have a person all figured out.
Lily Collins
God will judge us, Mr. Harris, by–by what we did to relieve the suffering of our fellow human beings. I don’t think God cares what doctrine we embrace.
Abraham Verghese
These humans are only of flesh, of mud, and I suggest there is one force stronger than their zeal for God: their own self-righteousness! We will make them proud, pure in their own eyes, vindictive, unjust judges over each other, and stir up such a noise among them that the simplest prayer will not be uttered!
Frank Peretti
I have kept my promise to the American people by nominating a justice of the United States supreme court judge Neil Gorsuch who is from my list of 20 and who will be a true defender of our laws and constitution.
Donald Trump
Your heart just breaks, that’s all. But you can’t judge or point fingers. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates you.
Audrey Hepburn
Although actions speak louder than words, I believe it is our intentions that reveal our soul. Refrain from judging others based solely on their words and actions, and seek to know their deepest intentions so that you can know who they truly aspire to be, and support them in becoming the best version of themselves.
Hal Elrod
Don’t judge a person by their past. They don’t necessarily live there anymore.
Nicky Gumbel
One can criticize the Israeli government, but it is not fair to judge the people of Israel.
Antonio Munoz Molina
It has been thought that the people are not competent electors of judges learned in the law. But I do not know this to be true, and, if doubtful, we should follow principle.
Thomas Jefferson
If you truly love someone, you don’t judge them by their past. You leave it there. Just be happy that their future belongs to you.
A good and faithful judge ever prefers the honorable to the expedient.
I don’t believe you can make an honest film about another person in all their complexities from a place of distance. You can make a journalistic report, you can judge someone from a distance, but you can’t really get to know them.
Joshua Oppenheimer
I don’t want to judge anyone’s sex life – but I worry that those are the only options we are giving to our young people.
Christopher Rice
You have discovered so much kindness and good will to those you thought were oppressed, and had no helper, that I am sure you will not despise what I have wrote, if you judge it will be of any service to them.
Jupiter Hammon
History or custom or social utility or some compelling sense of justice or sometimes perhaps a semi-intuitive apprehension of the pervading spirit of our law must come to the rescue of the anxious judge and tell him where to go.
Benjamin Cardozo
I consider myself to be a pretty good judge of people… that’s why I don’t like any of them.
Roseanne Barr
I’m one of three judges on ‘MasterChef’ with Gordon Ramsay, but I don’t want my own show. I’m kind of used to the sidekick gig.
Joe Bastianich
Edward Banfield’s idea of the “long time horizon,” says that more successful people look further into the future, judging their efforts and results in terms of decades, not weeks or even months. This is the power of thinking long.
Tom Butler-Bowdon
I hate tests. It’s a really lousy way to judge a person’s ability.
Bill Paxton
Feelings should always be allowed to be free. You should not judge a future love by past suffering.
Paulo Coelho
A critic is a man who creates nothing and thereby feels qualified to judge the work of creative men. There is logic in this; he is unbiased, he hates all creative people equally.
Robert A. Heinlein
People hasten to judge in order not to be judged themselves.
Albert Camus
If thou canst see sharp, look and judge wisely, says the philosopher.
Marcus Aurelius
I only do one thing at a time; otherwise, I get confused and then I can’t trick you.
Judy Sheindlin
Don’t judge from the outside. Like any beautiful rose has thorns… the more a person appears nice on the outside, the more you should doubt the inside.
Gosho Aoyama
That’s how I judge a quarterback: Either you make plays or you don’t. I don’t even want to talk about mechanics.
Fran Tarkenton
I love music. It’s always been a big part of my life, and I don’t think people should, you know, judge me by my last name instead of listening to the album. I think the music definitely speaks for itself, and it’s a great album.
Paris Hilton
Conscience is all about using discernment, discrimination and assessment, rather than looking to the rather crude form of advice from the judge that’s mostly attacking our sense of worth or value, instead of giving us helpful information.
Mark Coleman
Objection!” Metz shouts. Grounds?” the judge asks. Well…he’s my witness!
Jodi Picoult
I have simply said that there’s just a side of me that could not judge anybody singing. It’s not who I am. I don’t want to be that person.
Steve Perry
The ordinary manner of spending their time, is the only way of judging of people’s inclination and genius.
Ellin Devis
It’s tough when you started out as young as I did to look back and see how far I’ve come. I try to be easy on myself and go ‘Look man, you were younger, you were learning; you learn, you grow.’ But I’m not my best judge. I always feel like my best work is still ahead of me.
Matt Dillon
We should be similarly wary of accepting common opinions; we should judge them by the ways of reason not by popular vote.
Michel de Montaigne
This principle that judges are not politicians lies at the very heart of a judicial job – of the judicial job description.
Orrin Hatch
It’s your own conscience That is gonna remind you That it’s your heart and nobody else’s That is gonna judge.
Bob Marley
To give a person an opinion one must first judge well whether that person is of the disposition to receive it or not.
Yamamoto Tsunetomo
In the case of judges, I wouldn’t be shocked to find out the number on television exceeds the number in real life — what is it about those black robes that makes us think ovaries?
Jane Espenson
We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.
Henry Ward Beecher
Trump considers himself such a virile example of masculinity that he’s qualified to serve as the ultimate arbiter of femininity. He relishes judging women on the basis of their looks, which he seems to believe amounts to the sum of their character.
Franklin Foer
when you judge the power that is in a person, you must judge their capacities as both friend and as enemy.
Gregory David Roberts
Whenever you have a thought that excludes or judges anyone else, you aren’t defining them. You’re defining yourself as someone who needs to judge others.
Wayne Dyer
You can make the best of it and be content, or you can complain, it makes no difference. What does it matter that human beings judge the things that exist?
Franz Grillparzer
Monogamy is desirable for many reasons, especially in creating a stable, emotionally connected home for children. But judging from centuries of human behavior, it is also a very difficult standard to meet.
Mary Gaitskill
Anyhow, I’ve learned one thing now. You only really get to know people when you’ve had a jolly good row with them. Then and then only can you judge their true characters!
Anne Frank
You lose power to the people and circumstances you judge. They capture your attention in the same way that a movie does.
Gary Zukav
He uses common sense to judge not the intentions of an action but its consequences.
Paulo Coelho
In every case, we ought to act that part towards another, which we would judge to be right in him to act toward us, if we were in his circumstances and he in ours; or more generally – What we approve in others, that we ought to practise in like circumstances, what we condemn in others we ought not to do.
Thomas Reid
As to judging our own time, and thereby gaining some basis for a judgment of future possibilities, we are doubtless not only too close to it to appraise it but too much formed by it and enclosed within it to do so.
Emily Greene Balch
Of course you’re always at liberty to judge the critic. Judge people as critics, however, and you’ll condemn them all!
Henry James
God forbid that Judges upon their oath should make resolutions to enlarge jurisdiction.
William Cowper
She can’t even chew gum and walk in a straight line, let alone write a book.
Liam Gallagher
Ultimately, the courts will make the final judgment whether the White House has gone too far. Independent and impartial judges must assess the proper balance between protecting our liberties and protecting our national security.
Edward Kennedy
In the remaining months, we should focus on achieving more robust international involvement in training of Iraqi soldiers, police officers, judges, teachers, and doctors – all key elements needed to end the sectarian and civil conflict and build Iraq’s future.
John Olver
To consider judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.
Thomas Jefferson
Take all the robes of all the good judges that have ever lived on the face of the earth, and they would not be large enough to cover the iniquity of one corrupt judge.
Henry Ward Beecher
Big business never pays a nickel in taxes, according to Ralph Nader, who represents a big consumer organization that never pays a nickel in taxes.
Dave Barry
[James vowed again to] use the National Guard and state troopers to prevent the removal [of Judge Roy Moore’s Commandments display].
Fob James
What happens if a big asteroid hits Earth ? Judging from realistic simulations involving a sledge hammer and a common laboratory frog, we can assume it will be pretty bad.
Dave Barry
Make not thyself the judge of any man.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
One can choose to obsess over prescriptive rules, but they have no more to do with human language than the criteria for judging cats at a cat show have to do with mammalian biology.
Steven Pinker
One must judge men not by their opinions, but by what their opinions have made of them.
Georg C. Lichtenberg
I learned a long time ago not to judge people by what they look like, sound like, or by the clothes they wear. Just because a house is nice and shiny out front doesn’t mean it’s not rotting on the inside. (Kyrian)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Some people try to get out of jury duty by lying. You don’t have to lie. Tell the judge the truth. Tell him you’d make a terrific juror because you can spot guilty people.
George Carlin
Had my dream again where I’m making love, and the Olympic judges are watching. I’d nailed the compulsories, so this is it, the finals. I got a 9.8 from the Canadians, a perfect 10 from the Americans, and my mother, disguised as an East German judge, gave me a 5.6. Must have been the dismount.
Harry Burns
I think if you look at yesterday’s New York Times poll, particularly when you judge Democrats in Congress versus the Republicans in Congress, people put a little more faith, or even a little more than a little more faith in the Democrats in Congress.
John Podesta
When will rappers & skanks realize God’s not the only one who gets to judge them on their actions? We do too. It’s called CONSEQUENCES.
Nils Parker
Somewhere between the ages of eleven and fifteen, the average child begins to suffer from an atrophy, the paralysis of curiosity and the suspension of the power to observe. The trouble, I should judge, to lie with the schools.
Thomas A. Edison
Dan instantly recognized the angry scratch that stretched from the corner of Ian’s eye all the way along the olive skin to his chin. “Have you been messing with Saladin?” “No. Saladin has been messing with me,” Ian shot back. “He isn’t big on Lucians,” Dan explained. “Animals are really good judges of character.
Gordon Korman
I’m grateful when stories come in a rush, although I keep an eye on them afterwards, to see whether they hold together. It’s harder to judge the ones that took so long to finish. With those, I’ve lost perspective. Mostly I’m just glad that I can be done with them.
Kelly Link
If you want to get your soul to heaven, trust in me. Don’t judge or question. You are broken now, but faith can heal you. Just do everything I tell you to do.
Maynard James Keenan
Unfortunately, in real life, people are so incredibly quick to judge a situation before it has completely played itself out. But fortunately, in “reel” life, the audience gets an opportunity to watch things unfold, or unravel… or both in some cases.
Michael Muhney
Violence is not to be undertaken by private persons. If a state or administration acts without due and visible attention to agreed international process, it acts in a way analogous to a private person. It purports to be judge of its own interest.
Rowan Williams
God plants His saints in the most useless places. We say, ‘God intends me to be here because I am so useful.’ Jesus never estimated His life along the line of the greatest use. God puts His saints where they will glorify Him, and we are no judge at all of where that is.
Oswald Chambers
