God does not weigh criminality in our scales. We have one absolute, with the seal of authority upon it; and with us an ounce is an ounce, and a pound a pound. God's measure is the heart of the offender,--a balance which varies with every one of us, a balance so delicate that a tear cast in the other side may make the weight of error kick the beam.
      - James Russell Lowell

Men as a whole judge more with their eyes than with their hands.
      - Niccolo Machiavelli (Macchiavelli)

Give your decisions, never your reasons; your decisions may be right, your reasons are sure to be wrong.
      - Sir James Mansfield, Advice

Judge thyself with a judgment of sincerity, and thou wilt judge others with a judgment of charity.
      - John Mason

O, how full of error is the judgment of mankind. They wonder at results when they are ignorant of the reasons. They call it fortune when they know not the cause, and thus worship their own ignorance changed into a deity.
      - Metastasio (pseudonym of Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi Pietro)

When thou attended gloriously from heaven,
  Shalt in the sky appear, and from thee send
    Thy summoning archangels to proclaim
      Thy dread tribunal.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. III, l. 323)

There written all
  Black as the damning drops that fall
    From the denouncing Angel's pen,
      Ere Mercy weeps them out again.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--Paradise and the Peri
         (st. 28)

There are no judgments so harsh as those of the erring, the inexperienced, and the young.
      - Dinah Maria Mulock (used pseudonym Mrs. Craik)

We praise or blame as one or the other affords more opportunity for exhibiting our power of judgment.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Outward judgment often fails, inward judgment never.
      - Theodore Parker

'Tis with our judgments as our watches, none
  Go just alike, yet each believes his own.
      - Alexander Pope, Essay on Criticism (l. 9)

Wise judges are we of each other!
      - Armand Jean du Plessis Duc de Richelieu

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

For every event is a judgment of God.
  [Ger., Denn aller Ausgang ist ein Gottesurheil.]
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller,
        Wallenstein's Tod (I, 7, 32)

Commonly we say a Judgment falls upon a
  Man for something in him we cannot abide.
      - John Selden, Table Talk--Judgments

For I do not distinguish them by the eye, but by the mind, which is the proper judge of the man.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        Of a Happy Life (ch. I),
        (L'Estrange's Abstract)

We shall be judged, not by what we might have been, but what we have been.
      - Rev. William Sewell,
        Passing Thoughts on Religion--Sympathy in Gladness

And how his audit stands, who knows, save Heaven?
      - William Shakespeare

How would you be if He, which is the top of judgment, should but judge you as you are?
      - William Shakespeare

They, judgment and reason, have been grandjurymen since before Noah was a sailor.
      - William Shakespeare

He that of greatest works is finisher
  Oft does them by the weakest minister.
    So holy writ in babes hath judgment shown
      When judges have been babes; great floods have flown
        From simple sources, and great seas have dried
          When miracles have by the greatest been denied.
      - William Shakespeare,
        All's Well That Ends Well
         (Helena at II, i)

I see men's judgments are
  A parcel of their fortunes, and things outward
    Do draw the inward quality after them
      To suffer all alike.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
         (Enobarbus at III, xiii)

I will chide no breather in the world but myself, against whom I know most faults.
      - William Shakespeare, As You Like It
         (Orlando at III, ii)

Give every man thine ear, but few thy voice;
  Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at I, iii)

O judgment, thou art fled to brutish beasts,
  And men have lost their reason!
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Antony at III, ii)
