Judges

Famous quotes containing the word judges:

    Let judges secretly despair of justice: their verdicts will be more acute. Let generals secretly despair of triumph; killing will be defamed. Let priests secretly despair of faith: their compassion will be true.
    Leonard Cohen (b. 1934)

    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)

    The laws of Caesar are one thing, those of Christ, another. Papinianus judges one way, our Paul another.
    Jerome (c. 340–420)
