We do all, myself included, we tend to hold ourselves to pretty low standards. But when it comes to judging public figures or politicians or people we've never met, we tend to hold people to very high standards, and, if we held ourselves to those standards, we'd always fall short.
I mean, I love being with friends and I love kissing and loving someone to pieces. But it's hard to find someone who doesn't ultimately start judging you and your choices.
I wouldn't approach the issue of judging in the way the president does. Judges can't rely on what's in their heart. They don't determine the law. Congress makes the law. The job of a judge is to apply the law.
In the days when corporate downsizing was all the rage, Wall Street took a lot of flak for judging companies too harshly and setting the bar for corporate performance so high that executives felt their only option was to slash payrolls.
People tend to say Christians are always judging, but the word of God convicts Christians and urges them to obey God's commands.

The U.S. State Department has a consistent record of error in the assessment of Asian situations and judging Red Chinese intentions.
I'm always listening and watching; my ear is like a boom mike. And judging, frankly. Constantly judging.
It's not a science when you are judging art, but we'd be remiss to say you can't look at something and say, 'This is more well done than that.'
The number of those who undergo the fatigue of judging for themselves is very small indeed.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Nowadays, what an award gives is a sense of solidarity with the poetry guild, as it were: sustenance coming from the assent of your peers on the judging panel.
Judging is a lonely job in which a man is, as near as may be, an island entire.
But an experienced reader is also a self-aware and critical reader. I can't remember ever reading a story without judging it.
The moment that we realize our attention has wandered is the magic moment of the practice, because that's the moment we have the chance to be really different. Instead of judging ourselves, and berating ourselves, and condemning ourselves, we can be gentle with ourselves.
When I wrote 'The Good Body,' I turned 40 and suddenly had this stomach. It seemed like the end of the world. Because I didn't value my body. I was constantly judging it, but I also didn't live in it.
I want to be very careful about judging and how much to generalize about the use of media being pathological. For some people, it's a temptation and a pathology; for others, it's a lifeline.
I met my darling wife Wilnelia in 1980 when we were on the judging panel for the Miss World contest at the Royal Albert Hall. With two ex-wives and five daughters, I thought I wouldn't be involved with anyone for a long time - if ever. Winnie was so gorgeous, my jaw dropped - and it's a big jaw to drop.

Unlike some, I don't claim to hold the mystic key to the future.

Walter Russell Mead
My father basically had two ways of judging anything. Either something was poetic or it wasn't.

Willing or preferring is the same with respect to good and evil, that judging is with respect to truth or falsehood.
It's really hard to see yourself and to recognize that you are a human being like everybody else. You just think everybody's judging you.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
