Forbear to judge, for we are sinners all.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (King Henry at III, iii)

I not deny,
  The jury passing on the prisoner's life
    May in the sworn twelve have a thief or two
      Guiltier than him they try; what's open made to justice,
        That justice seizes; what knows the laws
          That thieves do pass on thieves?
      - William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
         (Angelo at II, i)

How would you be,
  If He, which is the top of judgment, should
    But judge you as you are? O think on that,
      And mercy then will breathe within your lips,
        Like man new made.
      - William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
         (Isabella at II, ii)

What we oft do best,
  By sick interpreters (once weak ones) is
    Not ours, or not allowed; what worst, as oft
      Hitting a grosser quality, is cried up
        For our best act.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Wolsey at I, ii)

A Daniel come to judgment! yea, a Daniel!
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Shylock at IV, i)

I charge you by the law,
  Whereof you are a well-deserving pillar,
    Proceed to judgment.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Shylock at IV, i)

I stand for judgment. Answer; shall I have it?
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Shylock at IV, i)

The urging of that word 'judgment' hath bred a kind of remorse in me.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Second Murderer at I, iv)

The very thing that men think they have got the most of, they have got the least of; and that is judgment.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)

The number of those who undergo the fatigue of judging for themselves is very small indeed.
      - Richard Brinsley Sheridan

In forming a judgment, lay your hearts void of foretoken opinions; else, whatsoever is done or said will be measured by a wrong rule; like them who have the jaundice, to whom everything appears yellow.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

How dreadful it is when the right judge judges wrong.
      - Sophocles

It behooves us always to bear in mind, that while actions are always to be judged by the immutable standard of right and wrong, the judgments which we pass upon men must be qualified by considerations of age, country, station, and other accidental circumstances; and it will then be found that he who is most charitable in his judgment is generally the least unjust.
      - Robert Southey

Would that our harsh judgments could be restrained, our impatience checked, our selfishness broken down, our passions controlled, our waste of time and life in worthless or unworthy objects corrected, by the thought that there is One in whose hands we are, who cares for us with a parent's love, who will judge us hereafter without the slightest tinge of human' infirmity, the All-Merciful and the All-Just.
      - Dean Arthur Penrhyn Stanley

To sit alone with my conscience will be judgment enough for me.
      - Very Rev. Charles William Stubbs, D.D.

But as when an authentic watch is shown,
  Each man winds up and rectifies his own,
    So in our very judgments.
      - Sir John Suckling, Aglaura (epilogue)

Though our works
  Find righteous or unrighteous judgment, this
    At least is ours, to make them righteous.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne, Marino Faliero
         (act III, sc. 1)

. . . Where blind and naked Ignorance
  Delivers brawling judgments, unashamed,
    On all things all day long.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson,
        Idylls of the King--Merlin and Vivien
         (l. 662)

The nature of all men is so formed that they see and discriminate in the affairs of others, much better than in their own.
  [Lat., Ita comparatam esse naturam omnium, aliena ut melius videant et dijudicent, quam sua.]
      - Terence (Publius Terentius Afer),
        Heauton timoroumenos (III, 1, 94)

Ev'n not all these, in one rich lot combined,
  Can make the happy man, without the mind,
    Where judgment sits clear-sighted, and surveys
      The chain of reason with unerring gaze.
      - James Thomson (1)

Rashly, nor ofttimes truly, doth man pass judgment on his brother; for he seeth not the springs of the heart, nor heareth the reasons of the mind.
      - Martin Farquhar Tupper

I mistrust the judgment of every man in a case in which his own wishes are concerned.
      - Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley

One cool judgment is worth a thousand hasty councils. The thing to do is to supply light and not heat. Ay any rate, if it is heat it ought to be white heat and not sputter, because sputtering heat is apt to spread the fire. There ought, if there is any heat at all, to be that warmth of the heart which makes every man thrust aside his own personal feeling, his own personal interest, and take thought of the welfare and benefit of others.
      - Thomas Woodrow Wilson,
        in a speech at Pittsburgh

Human judgment is finite, and it ought always to be charitable.
      - William Winter
