Dinocrates, I appreciate your design as excellent in composition, and I am delighted with it, but I apprehend that anybody who should found a city in that spot would be censured for bad judgement. For as a newborn babe cannot be nourished without the nurse's milk, nor conducted to the approaches that lead to growth in life, so a city cannot thrive without fields and the fruits thereof pouring into its walls.
Thus methinks should men of judgement frame Their means of traffic from the vulgar trade, And as their wealth increaseth, so enclose Infinite riches in a little room.Christopher Marlowe
Personal dignity is to be measured with the yardstick of one’s conscience, not with that of other people’s judgement.Fausto Cercignani
To charge all unmerited praise with the guilt of flattery, and to suppose that the encomiast always knows and feels the falsehood of his assertions, issurely to discover great ignorance of human nature and human life. In determinations depending not on rules, but on experience and comparison, judgement is always to some degree subject to affection.Very near to admiration is the wish to admire.
The greatest improvement in the productive powers of labour, and the greater part of the skill, dexterity and judgement with which it is any where directed, as applied, seem to have been the effects of the division of labour.Adam Smith
His mind resembled the vast ampitheatre, the Colisæum at Rome. In the centre stood his judgement, which like a mighty gladiator, combated those apprehensions that, like the wild beasts of the Arena, were all around in cells, ready to be let out upon him. After a conflict, he drives them back into their dens; but not killing them, they were still assailing him.james boswell
General Ratko Mladi? is a living 100 kg contradiction ... His large and compact face is almost always painted with a smile. He inspires trust at first sight, but the same senior UN functionaries, those who spent the most time with him in , are divided in their judgement.ratko mladić
I will confer with thee somewhat gravely, although thou beest a goosecap and hast no judgement.thomas nashe
Das moralische Urteilen undVerurteilen ist die Lieblings- Rache der Geistig-Beschr a« nkten an denen, die es weniger sind. Moral judgement and condemnation is the favourite form of revenge of the spiritually limited on those who are less so.
Resistants were on the right side, Salò Republic's combatants on the wrong one. (...) One cannot equate who was fighting for a right cause of equality and freedom, and who, apart of goodfaith, was on the wrong side. (...) The judgement of the Right [on Fascism] have to be negative, due to freedom limitation. (...) We cannot deny ourselves history, and Fascism was a dictatorship that denied some fundamental freedoms.gianfranco fini
"Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement."jim horning
Faith exalts the human heart, by removing it from the market-place, making it sacred and unexchangeable. Under the jurisdiction of religion our deeper feelings are sacralized, so as to become raw material for the ethical life: the life lived in judgement.roger scruton
Attending there let us absorb the cultures of nations And dissolve into our judgement all their codes. Then, being clogged with a natural hesitation (People are continually asking one the way out), Let us stand here and admit that we have no road.william empson
The only way to escape misrepresentation is never to commit oneself to any critical judgement that makes an impact – that is, never to say anything. I still, however think that the best way to promote profitable discussion is to be as clear as possible with oneself about what one sees and judges, to try and establish the essential discriminations in the given field of interest, and to state them as clearly as one can (for disagreement, if necessary).f. r. leavis
We speak glibly of conservation education, but what do we mean by it? If we mean indoctrination, then let us be reminded that it is just as easy to indoctrinate with fallacies as with facts. If we mean to teach the capacity for independent judgement, then I am appalled by the magnitude of the task.aldo leopold
"No nation is fit to sit in judgement upon any other nation."
If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well It were done quickly. If the assassination Could trammel up the consequence, and catch, With his surcease, success; that but this blow Might be the be-all and the end-all here, But here, upon this bank and shoal of time, We'd jump the life to come. But in these cases We still have judgement here; that we but teach Bloody instructions, which being taught, return To plague the inventor: this even-handed justice Commends the ingredients of our poison'd chalice To our own lips.william shakespeare
According to my judgement, the French Revolution and the doings of Napoleon opened the eyes of the world . The nations knew nothing before and the people thought that kings were gods upon the earth and that they were bound to say that whatever they did as well done.
"judgement day," he said in a mocking voice. "Ain't no judgement day, old man. Cept this. Maybe this here judgement day for you."
Sickness is the first warning that we have made a wrong judgement . A healthy person is never unhappy.
Great cases like hard cases make bad law. For great cases are called great, not by reason of their importance in shaping the law of the future, but because of some accident of immediate overwhelming interest which appeals to the feelings and distorts the judgement.
Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet, Till earth and sky stand presently at God's great judgement seat; But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth, When two strong men stand facetoface, tho'theycome from the ends of the earth.
England shall bide till judgement Tide By Oak, and Ash, and Thorn.
In the unlikely event of losing Pascal's Wager, I intend to saunter in to judgement Day with a bookshelf full of grievances, a flaming sword of my own devising, and a serious attitude problem.
Teleology,... as science, belongs to no Doctrine, but only to Criticism; and to the criticism of a special cognitive faculty, viz. judgement. But so far as it contains principles a priori , it can and must furnish the method by which nature must be judged according to the principle of final causes.Immanuel Kant
