God forbid that Judges upon their oath should make resolutions to enlarge jurisdiction.
Knowing that religion does not furnish grosser bigots than law, I expect little from old judges.thomas jefferson
The prestige of the Nobel Prize is due to many causes, but in particular to its twofold idealistic and international character: idealistic in that it has been designed for works of lofty inspiration; international in that it is awarded after the production of different countries has been minutely studied and the intellectual balance sheet of the whole world has been drawn up. Free from all other considerations and ignoring any but intellectual values, the judges have deliberately taken their place in what the philosophers have called a community of the mind.henri-louis bergson
The solemn fog; significant and budge; A fool with judges, amongst fools a judge.william cowper
The Constitution... meant that its coordinate branches should be checks on each other.

Times before number, condemned criminals had waited for their last dawn. Yet until the very end they could hope for a reprieve; human judges can show mercy. But against the laws of nature, there is no appeal.
Angelo : Thieves for their robbery have authority When judges steal themselves.william shakespeare
judges and senates have been bought for gold; Esteem and love were never to be sold.Alexander Pope
judges ought to be more learned than witty, more reverend than plausible, and more advised than confident. Above all things, integrity is their portion and proper virtue.
No doubt, there are those who believe that judges-and particularly dissenting judges-write to hear themselves say, as it were, I I I. And no doubt, there are also those who believe that judges are, like Joan Didion, primarily engaged in the writing of fiction. I cannot agree with either of those propositions.brennan, william j., jr.
The world at large does not judge us by who we are and what we know; it judges us by what we have.joyce brothers
I'm the only guy who actually invented anything of the judges. They got a couple of advertising hacks, and a venture capitalist.doug hall
I had too many bad comments from the judges. Too many, too late, at this point in timesyesha mercado
Each state pursues its own interest's, however defined, in ways it judges best. Force is a means of achieving the external ends of states because there exists no consistent, reliable process of reconciling the conflicts of interest that inevitably arise among similar units in a condition of anarchy.kenneth waltz
All submit to them where they sit, inner, secure, unapproachable to analysis in the soul,Not traditions, not the outer authorities are the judges,They are the judges of outer authorities and of all traditions,They corroborate as they go only whatever corroborates themselves, and touches themselves;For all that, they have it forever in themselves to corroborate far and near without one exception.walt whitman
A man is morally free when... he judges the world, and judges other men, with uncompromising sincerity. This is not just an aim but an obligation.nassim nicholas taleb
Of course, we need not be surprised if artistic excellence goes unrecognized on account of being unknown; but there should be the greatest indignation when, as often, good judges are flattered by the charm of social entertainments into an approbation which is a mere a pretence.vitruvius
When the judges shall be obliged to go armed, it will be time for the courts to be closed.
Since twelve honest men have decided the cause, And were judges of fact, tho' not judges of laws.
Although the most acute judges of the witches and even the witches themselves, were convinced of the guilt of witchery, the guilt nevertheless was non-existent. It is thus with all guilt.
He that judges without informing himself to the utmost that he is capable, cannot acquit himself of judging amiss.john locke
And We sent after them in their footsteps Jesus, son of Mary, verifying that which was before him of the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel containing guidance and light, and verifying that which was before it of the Torah, and a guidance and an admonition for the dutiful. And let the People of the Gospel judge by that which Allah has revealed in it. And whoever judges not by what Allah has revealed, those are the transgressors.
Decisions of the Irish Courts, though entitled to the highest respect. are not binding on English judges.
How necessary it is carefully to consider the language of learned judges, especially when you are dealing with language which is admitted to be only a dictum and not a decision, and when it is attempted to use that language for the purpose of founding on it an article of a code of law.
judges, like Caesar's wife, should be above suspicion.
In the judgments which judges pronounce, this is inevitable, that, having their minds full, not only of the cases before them, but of the principles involved in the cases which have been referred to, it very often happens that a Judge, in stating as much as is necessary to decide the case before him, does not express all that may be said upon the subject. That leaves the judgment open sometimes to misconstruction, and enables ingenious advocates, by taking out certain passages, to draw conclusions which the Judge never meant to be drawn from the words he used.
Recognised precedents have the force of decisions, by which Courts and judges individually must hold themselves bound.
