Judges Quotes

Human judges can show mercy. But against the laws of nature, there is no appeal.

William Clark

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

The more a man judges, the less he loves.

Honor de Balzac

Men of genius are not quick judges of character. Deep thinking and high imagining blunt that trivial instinct by which you and I size people up.

Sir Henry Maximilian Beerbohm

A sense of humor judges one's actions and the actions of others from a wider reference... it pardons shortcomings; it consoles failure. It recommends moderation.

Thornton Wilder

Contemplative and bookish men must of necessity be more quarrelsome than others, because they contend not about matter of fact, nor can determine their controversies by any certain witnesses, nor judges. But as long as they go towards peace, that is Truth, it is no matter which way.

John Donne

Nevada's one of the most conservative states in the Union, but you can do what you want in Vegas and nobody judges you.

Drew Carey

As records of courts and justice are admissible, it can easily be proved that powerful and malevolent magicians once existed and were a scourge to mankind. The evidence (including confession) upon which certain women were convicted of witchcraft and executed was without a flaw; it is still unimpeachable. The judges' decisions based on it were sound in logic and in law. Nothing in any existing court was ever more thoroughly proved than the charges of witchcraft and sorcery for which so many suffered death. If there were no witches, human testimony and human reason are alike destitute of value.

Ambrose Bierce

To embarrass justice by a multiplicity of laws, or to hazard it by confidence in judges, are the opposite rocks on which all civil institutions have been wrecked, and between which legislative wisdom has never yet found an open passage.

Samuel Johnson

Although the most acute judges of the witches and even the witches themselves, were convinced of the guilt of witchery, the guilt nevertheless was non-existent. It is thus with all guilt.

Friedrich Nietzsche

If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress... Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America

James Madison

Most people think themselves kind enough, but rather like a magician thinking he is fooling an audience who can see through his trick, we are the worst judges of the effect we have on others. True, we can mentally point out various kindnesses we have committed and those pleasant aspects of ourselves. Yet by doing so, we ignore the real test cases: how we behave under pressure, how nice we are to people we dont like, how we deal with other people who seem determined to not live up to our unrealistic expectations.

Derren Victor Brown

Story belongs to the people. They are sounder judges of it than anyone else, for their senses are unspoiled and their emotions are free.

Pearl Sydenstricker Buck

The populace judges of the power of God by the power of the priests.

Napoleon Bonaparte

Posterity alone rightly judges kings. Posterity alone has the right to accord or withhold honors.

Napoleon Bonaparte
