#BlogElul: Judge

Some food for thought from others:

Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.

Do not mind anything that anyone tells you about anyone else. Judge everyone and everything for yourself.
--Henry James

I do believe that every person has an equal opportunity to be a good and wise judge regardless of their background or life experiences.
--Sonia Sotomayor

I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made.
--Franklin D. Roosevelt

Let you look sometimes for the goodness in me, and judge me not.
--Arthur Miller

I am saddened by how people treat one another and how we are so shut off from one another and how we judge one another, when the truth is, we are all one connected thing. We are all from the same exact molecules.
--Ellen DeGeneres

He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.
--Immanuel Kant

We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.
--Henry Ward Beecher

Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima, this #BlogElul post is one in a series marking the days of the Hebrew month of Elul, which precedes the Jewish High Holidays and traditionally serves as a time of reflection and spiritual preparation for the new year.
