On you, my lord, with anxious fear I wait,
And from your judgment must expect my fate.
- Joseph Addison, A Poem to His Majesty
The most generous and merciful in judgment upon the faults of others, are always the most free from faults themselves.
- James H. Aughey
It is very questionable, in my mind, how far we have the right to judge one of another, since there is born within every man the germs of both virtue and vice. The development of one or the other is contingent upon circumstances.
- Hosea Ballou
The more one judges, the less one loves.
- Honore de Balzac
The more you judge, the less you love.
- Honore de Balzac
Cruel and cold is the judgment of man,
Cruel as winter, and cold as the snow;
But by-and-by will the deed and the plan
Be judged by the motive that lieth below.
- Lewis J. Bates, By-and-By
Tekel: Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.
- Bible, Daniel (ch. V, v. 27)
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
- Bible, II Corinthians (ch. V, v. 10)
Wise men say that there are three sorts of persons who are wholly deprived of judgment,--they who are ambitious of preferments in the courts of princes; they who make use of poison to show their skill in curing it; and they who intrust women with their secrets.
- Bidpai (Pilpay), The Two Travellers
(chap. ii, fable vi)
Feeling without judgment is a washy draught indeed; but judgment untempered by feeling is too bitter and husky a morsel for human deglutition.
- Charlotte Bronte (used pseudonym Currer Bell)
One wise man's verdict outweighs all the fools'.
- Robert Browning
Meanwhile "Black sheep, black sheep!" we cry,
Safe in the inner fold;
And maybe they hear, and wonder why,
And marvel, out in the cold.
- Richard Eugene Burton, Black Sheep
Who upon earth could live were all judged justly?
- Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)
My friend, judge not me,
Thou seest I judge not thee;
Betwixt the stirrop and the ground,
Mercy I askt, mercy I found.
- William Camden,
Remaines Concerning Britaine
(1637, p. 392),
quoted by Dr. Hill on epitaph to a man killed by a fall from his horse
Foolish men imagine that because judgment for an evil thing is delayed, there is no justice, but an accident alone, here below. Judgment for an evil thing is many times delayed some day or two, some century or two; but it is sure as life, it is sure as death!
- Thomas Carlyle
For all right judgment of any man or thing it is useful, nay, essential, to see his good qualities before pronouncing on his bad.
- Thomas Carlyle
Woe to him, . . . who has no court of appeal against the world's judgment.

Men's judgments sway on that side fortune leans.
- George Chapman
We neither know nor judge ourselves; others may judge, but cannot know us. God alone judges and knows us.
- Wilkie (William) Collins
We judge other according to results; how else?--not knowing the process by which results are arrived at.
- George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
The Mill on the Floss (bk. VII, ch. II)
The judgment may be compared to a clock or watch, where the most ordinary machine is sufficient to tell the hours; but the most elaborate alone can point out the minutes and seconds, and distinguish the smallest differences of time.
- Bernard de Bovier de Fontenelle
The right of private judgment is absolute in every American citizen.
- James Abram Garfield
In other men we faults may spy,
And blame the mote that dims their eye;
Each little speck and blemish find,
To our own stronger errors blind.
- John Gay, The Turkey and the Ant
(pt. I, l. 1)
So comes a reckoning when the banquet's o'er,
The dreadful reckoning, and men smile no more.
- John Gay, The What D'ye Call It
(act II, sc. 9)
How are we justly to determine in a world where there are no innocent ones to judge the guilty?
- Comtesse de Genlis, Stephanie-Felicite du Crest de Saint-Aubin
