Such proud, obstinate, ridiculous judgements I have encountered many times, and once even in England.
Everyday we act in ways that reflect our ethical judgements.peter singer
Where we desire to be informed,'tisgood to contest with men above ourselves; but to confirm and establish our opinions,'tis best to argue with judgements below ourown, that the frequent spoils and victories over their reasonsmaysettleinourselvesanesteemand confirmed opinion of our own.
Our eyes are sentinels unto our judgements And should give certain judgement what they see; But theyare rash sometimes and tell us wonders Of common things, which when our judgements find, They can then check the eyes and call them blind.thomas middleton
When it comes to the final judgements on political conduct, history is not merciful. It is just.NewYorkTimes
Johnson's aesthetic judgements are almost invariably subtle, or solid, or bold; they have always some good quality to recommend themexcept one: theyare never right.(Giles) Lytton Strachey
Where blind and naked Ignorance Delivers brawling judgements, unashamed, On all things all day long.Tennyson
The more you realize that most judgements are greatly influenced by random, extraneous factors that most people judging you are more like a fickle novel buyer than a wise and perceptive magistrate the more you realize you can do things to influence the outcome.paul graham
The more I see the more I doubt whether people ever really make aesthetic judgements at all. Everything is judged on political grounds which are then given an aesthetic disguise. When, for instance, Eliot can't see anything good in Shelley or anything bad in Kipling, the real underlying reason must be that one is a radical and the other a conservative, of sorts.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Mathematical reasoning may be regarded rather schematically as the exercise of a combination of two facilities, which we may call intuition and ingenuity . The activity of the intuition consists in making spontaneous judgements which are not the result of conscious trains of reasoning... The exercise of ingenuity in mathematics consists in aiding the intuition through suitable arrangements of propositions, and perhaps geometrical figures or drawings.alan turing
Some philosophers fail to distinguish propositions from judgements; ... But in the real world it is more important that a proposition be interesting than that it be true. The importance of truth is that it adds to interest.Alfred North Whitehead
Nothing is as peevish and pedantic as men's judgements of one another.
I have long recognised as a fact that judgements really grounded on a long succession of small experiences mostly forgotten, or perhaps never brought out into very distinct consciousness , often grow into the likeness of intuitive perceptions .... When states of Mind in no respect innate or instinctive have been frequently repeated, the Mind acquires, as is proved by the power of Habit , a greatly increased facility of passing into those states and this increased facility must be owing to some change of a physical character, in the organic action of the Brain .
Acid rain is a short-hand term that covers a set of highly complex and controversial environmental problems. It is a subject in which emotive and political judgements tend to obscure the underlying scientific issues which are fairly easily stated but poorly understood.
