Famous quotes containing the word judges:

    Science is the language of the temporal world; love is that of the spiritual world. Man, indeed, describes more than he explains; while the angelic spirit sees and understands. Science saddens man; love enraptures the angel; science is still seeking, love has found. Man judges of nature in relation to itself; the angelic spirit judges of it in relation to heaven. In short to the spirits everything speaks.
    HonorĂ© De Balzac (1799–1850)

    If ye had not plowed with my heifer, ye had not found out my riddle.
    Bible: Hebrew Samson, in Judges 14:18.

    To the men who had answered his riddle, “Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness.”

    We do not quite say that the new is more valuable because it fits in; but its fitting in is a test of its value—a test, it is true, which can only be slowly and cautiously applied, for we are none of us infallible judges of conformity.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
