Famous quotes containing the word judges:

    The World is not enough used to this way of writing, to the moment. It knows not that in the minutiae lie often the unfoldings of the Story, as well as of the heart; and judges of an action undecided, as if it were absolutely decided.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)

    So let all thine enemies perish, O Lord:
    —Bible: Hebrew Judges (l. V, 31)
