We are selected, but I grew up in California and in San Francisco and there was a system of electing judges. ~ Stephen Breyer
Electing Judges quotes by Stephen Breyer
When hatred judges, the verdict is just guilty. ~ Toba Beta
Electing Judges quotes by Toba Beta
The marriage of convenience has this to recommend it: we are better judges of convenience than we are of love. ~ Mignon McLaughlin
Electing Judges quotes by Mignon McLaughlin
Such injunctions were burned into us, for Mommy felt strongly about proper behavior; about sitting with a straight back, knees together, legs crossed at the ankle; about walking with shoulders back, head high. 'A person meeting you for the first time judges you by how you walk, how you spreak, and how you're dressed,' she told us. On our Sunday excursions to Asbury Park, she would watch for an example . . . 'See that?' she's say. 'I don't know that man from Adam, but I can tell from his walk he's stupid, dumb, a no account.' Then she'd point to another man. 'I don't know him either, but that's an educated person. His back's straight, he's walking straight, not slumping and slouching and oozing along'. ~ Yvonne S. Thornton
Electing Judges quotes by Yvonne S. Thornton
In response, Tertullian pointed out what an emasculated, inconsistent figure Marcion's god was. This supposed deity: plainly judges evil by not willing it, and condemns it by prohibiting it; while on the other hand, he acquits it by not avenging it, and lets it go free by not punishing it. What a prevaricator of truth is such a god! What a dissembler to his own decision! Afraid to condemn what he really condemns, afraid to hate what he does not love, permitting that to be done which he does not allow, choosing to indicate what he dislikes rather than deeply examine it! ~ Iain M. Duguid
Electing Judges quotes by Iain M. Duguid
It is a trial within a nation but a trial of victors against the vanquished. Even before the trials started, the victors who are our judges were quite convinced that we were guilty and that we should all pay the price. ~ Julius Streicher
Electing Judges quotes by Julius Streicher
Furthermore, the slaves cannot be put into a more wretched situation, ourselves being judges, and the community cannot take a more lively step to escape ruin, and obtain the smiles and protection of Heaven. ~ Samuel Hopkins
Electing Judges quotes by Samuel Hopkins
The police have no right to do what they have been doing to the protesters. Their behavior has been designed to chill the protester's constitutional rights. This judge's ruling is wonderful. ~ James Lafferty
Electing Judges quotes by James Lafferty
The first black borough presidents of Manhattan were West Indians. As late as 1970, the highest ranking blacks in New York's police department were West Indians, as were all the black federal judges in the city. The 1970 census showed that black West Indian families in the New York metropolitan area had 28 percent higher incomes than the families of American blacks. The incomes of second-generation West Indian families living in the same area exceeded that of black families by 58 percent. Neither race nor racism can explain such differences. Nor can slavery, since native-born blacks and West Indian blacks both had a history of slavery. ~ Thomas Sowell
Electing Judges quotes by Thomas Sowell
he was punished by the envy of journalists, and by the malignant pedantry of half-civilised judges. Envy in his case overleaped itself: the hate of his justicers was so diabolic that they have given him to the pity of mankind forever; they it is who have made him eternally interesting to humanity, a tragic figure of imperishable renown. ~ Oscar Wilde
Electing Judges quotes by Oscar Wilde
Human hypocrisy: When one judges humanity as a whole, people have the habit of disagreeing, saying that everyone is different - unique. Yet people turn around and say that at the end of the day, everyone is the same. Ladies and gentlemen, the joyful paradoxical nature of humanity. If you really want to dismiss the paradox, show me that your an imaginary number, rather than a real number. ~ Lionel Suggs
Electing Judges quotes by Lionel Suggs
There's always room for improvement, but the judges are looking for big airs and stylish tricks. ~ Shaun White
Electing Judges quotes by Shaun White
One thing I know from personal experience, judges hate it when parties talk publicly about their cases. There are a lot of things about our criminal legal system that need to be changed, and this is just one of them. Prosecutors know how to play the press. Most defendants don't. ~ Michael Arrington
Electing Judges quotes by Michael Arrington
The courts have their job to do, and we have ours. Far too often, they get to tell us what to do and when, but the judges know that the line exists, and most stay on their side of it. I'm not about to start giving them the ground that we still own. ~ Marc Rainer
Electing Judges quotes by Marc Rainer
In the light of the world's attitude toward woman and her duties, the nature of Carrie's mental state deserves consideration. Actions such as hers are measured by an arbitrary scale. Society possesses a conventional standard whereby it judges all things. All men should be good, all women virtuous. Wherefore, villain, hast thou failed? ~ Theodore Dreiser
Electing Judges quotes by Theodore Dreiser
No tyranny is more cruel than the one practised in the shadow of the laws and under color of justice - when, so to speak, one proceeds to drown the unfortunate on the very plank by which they had saved themselves. And since a tyrant never lacks instruments for his tyranny, Tiberius always found judges ready to condemn as many people as he might suspect. ~ Baron De Montesquieu
Electing Judges quotes by Baron De Montesquieu
This watchfulness also applies to our tendency to add thought upon thought upon thought. We notice, for example, our anger and how it is quickly followed by another thought that judges it: "I should not be having this angry thought" or "after all these years I still can't let go of my anger" or "I thought I dealt with this years ago." This aggregate of thoughts must also be observed, and we must each see for ourselves that part of the reason we can't let go is that we whip these thoughts and feelings into a great drama that we watch over and over again.

It is not a question of having only acceptable thoughts, but of thoughts thoroughly observed as they appear and disappear in awareness. No thought or feeling should appear in the valley of awareness unobserved. ~ Martin Laird
Electing Judges quotes by Martin Laird
Reproof is unavoidable. God's Word demands it when a brother falls into open sin. The practice of discipline in the congregation begins in the smallest circles. Where defection from God's Word in doctrine or life imperils the family fellowship and with it the whole congregation, the word of admonition and rebuke must be ventured. Nothing can be more cruel than the tenderness that consigns another to his sin. Nothing can be more compassionate than the severe rebuke that calls a brother back from the path of sin. It is a ministry of mercy, an ultimate offer of genuine fellowship, when we allow nothing but God's Word to stand between us, judging and succoring. Then it is not we who are judging; God alone judges, and God's judgment is helpful and healing. Ultimately, we have no charge but to serve our brother, never to set ourselves above him, and we serve him even when we must speak the judging and dividing Word of God to him, even when, in obedience to God, we must break off fellowship with him. We must know that it is not our human love which makes us loyal to the other person, but God's love which breaks its way through to him only through judgment. Just because God's Word judges, it serves the person. He who accepts the ministry of God's judgment is helped. ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Electing Judges quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Like the vast majority of Americans, I've opposed same-sex marriage, but I've also opposed unjust discrimination against anyone, for racial or religious reasons, or for sexual preference. Americans are a tolerant, generous, and kind people. We all oppose bigotry and disparagement. But the debate over same-sex marriage is not a debate over tolerance. It is a debate about the purpose of the institution of marriage and it is a debate about activist judges who make up the law rather than interpret the law. ~ Mitt Romney
Electing Judges quotes by Mitt Romney
JA: We wouldn't mind a leak from Google, which would be, I think,
probably all the Patriot Act requests.275
ES: Which would be [whispers] illegal.
[Nervous chuckles]
JA: It depends on the jurisdiction ... !
ES: We are a US
JA: There are higher laws. First Amendment, you know.
ES: No, I've actually spent quite a bit of time on this question because I am
in great trouble because I have given a series of criticisms about Patriot I
and Patriot II, because they're nontransparent, because the judge's orders
are hidden and so forth and so on. The answer is that the laws are quite
clear about Google in the US. We couldn't do it. It would be illegal. ~ Julian Assange
Electing Judges quotes by Julian Assange
The bedrock of our democracy is the rule of law and that means we have to have an independent judiciary, judges who can make decisions independent of the political winds that are blowing. ~ Caroline Kennedy
Electing Judges quotes by Caroline Kennedy
Perhaps the scarlet cord that Rahab hangs from her window (Judges 2:18) reminds you of the blood of Christ, but that does not mean that is what it represents. ~ Timothy Keller
Electing Judges quotes by Timothy Keller
The problem is not covenant theology in general, but covenantal nomism in particular. Wright's primary objection to the imputation of Christ's active obedience is that it's a category mistake: "If we use the language of the law-court, it make no sense whatever to say that the judge imputes, imparts, bequeaths, conveys or otherwise transfers his righteousness to either the plaintiff or the defendant. Righteousness is not an object, a substance or gas which can be passed across the courtroom ... To imagine the defendant somehow receiving the judge's righteousness is simply a category mistake." P.25 ~ Michael S. Horton
Electing Judges quotes by Michael S. Horton
…how ready they themselves are at bottom to make one pay; how they crave to be hangmen. There is among them an abundance of the vengeful disguised as judges, who constantly bear the word "justice" in their mouths like poisonous spittle, always with pursed lips, always ready to spit upon all who are not discontented but go their own way in good spirits…The will of the weak to represent some form of superiority, their instinct for devious paths to tyranny over the healthy – where can it not be discovered, this will to power of the weakest! ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Electing Judges quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
It is my conviction that the public always shows itself more honest in its spontaneity than do those who officially set themselves up as judges of works of art. ~ Igor Stravinsky
Electing Judges quotes by Igor Stravinsky
Even what are considered the accomplishments of diversity are admissions of its failure. All across America, public organizations such as fire departments and police forces congratulate themselves when they manage to hire more than a token number of blacks or Hispanics. They promise that this will greatly improve service.
And yet, is this not an admission of how difficult the multi-racial enterprise really is? If all across America it has been shown that whites cannot provide effective police protection for blacks or Hispanics, it only proves that diversity is an insoluble problem. If blacks want black officers and Hispanics want Hispanic officers, they are certainly not expressing support for diversity. A mixed-race force - touted as an example of the benefits of diversity - becomes necessary only because of the tensions that arise between officers of one race and citizens of another. The diversity we celebrate is necessary only because of the intractable problems of diversity.
Likewise, if Hispanic judges and prosecutors must be recruited for the justice system, does this mean whites cannot dispense dispassionate justice? If non-white teachers are necessary role models for non-white children, does this mean inspiration cannot cross racial lines? If newspapers must hire non-white reporters in order to satisfy non-white readers, does this mean whites cannot write acceptable news for non-whites? If blacks demand black newscasters and weathermen on television, does it ~ Jared Taylor
Electing Judges quotes by Jared Taylor
I can't see the country electing another Bush, i love Jeb Bush - I think he's a nice guy. I just can't see it. ~ Tom Coburn
Electing Judges quotes by Tom Coburn
Judges are the weakest link in our system of justice, and they are also the most protected. ~ Alan Dershowitz
Electing Judges quotes by Alan Dershowitz
For all right judgment of any man or things it is useful, nay, essential, to see his good qualities before pronouncing on his bad. ~ Thomas Carlyle
Electing Judges quotes by Thomas Carlyle
Imagination judges the future by the past, but concerns itself with the future more than with the past. ~ Napoleon Hill
Electing Judges quotes by Napoleon Hill
Senescent judges show how patriotic they are by passing out hard sentences for tearing up a draft card or following one's conscience according to the principles established by our country at the Nuremburg trials. ~ Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
Electing Judges quotes by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
A sense of humor judges one's actions and the actions of others from a wider reference. It pardons shortcomings, it consoles failure. ~ Thornton Wilder
Electing Judges quotes by Thornton Wilder
A few years before his death in 1934 the great Algerian Sheikh, Ahmad al-'Alawi, became friendly with a Frenchman, Dr. Carret, who had been treating him for various minor ailments. One day Carrett tried to explain his agnosticism to the Sheikh, adding, however, that what most surprised him was that people who did claim to be religious 'should be able to go on attaching importance to this earthly life'. After a pause, the Sheikh said to him: 'It is a pity that you will not let your spirit rise above yourself. But whatever you may say and whatever you may imagine, you are nearer to God than you think'. In this confused age in which we now find ourselves there may be many a believer who is a kafir under the skin, and many a kafir who is closer than he knows to the God in whom he thinks he does not believe.

It is important to be aware of these paradoxes because the distrust of religion - or at least of 'organized religion' - which is so widespread in the Western world, derives less from intellectual doubts than from a critical judgement of the way in which religious people are seen to behave. The agnostic does not concern himself with the supernatural dimensions of religion, let alone with ultimate truth. He sees only that part of the iceberg which is visible above the surface, and he judges this to be misshapen. The whole sad story is summed up in the wise child's prayer: 'Lord, please make good people religious and make religious people good'. ~ Charles Le Gai Eaton
Electing Judges quotes by Charles Le Gai Eaton
Our constitutional system is founded on democracy: the will of the people, not the unchecked rule of judges. ~ Mike DeWine
Electing Judges quotes by Mike DeWine
You might make a mistake with your feet, but the judges can't watch your steps the whole time. They're more impressed by how you handle yourself.'
There wasn't much I could do to prove that Jeff was marking the audit sheet incorrectly. The only thing I could do was handle myself with grace. ~ Sophie
Electing Judges quotes by Sophie
Judges rule on the basis of law, not public opinion, and they should be totally indifferent to pressures of the times. ~ Warren E. Burger
Electing Judges quotes by Warren E. Burger
We should evaluate judges and judicial nominees based on the general process for applying the law to any legal disputes, not on the specific result in a particular case or dispute. ~ Orrin Hatch
Electing Judges quotes by Orrin Hatch
