Richelle E. Goodrich
“Perhaps, if you weren't so busy regarding my shortcomings, you'd find that I do possess redeeming qualities, discreet as they may be.  I notice when the sky is blue.  I smile down at children.  I laugh at any innocent attempt at humor.  I quietly carry the burdens of others as though they were my own.  And I say 'I'm sorry' when you don't.  I am not without fault, but I am not without goodness either.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, and Grumblings for Every Day of the Year

“A person doesn't ever truly know another person. They have a whole life, years and years of memories and experiences. You cannot ever know what they have felt in situations, what has happened to them, what made them who they are. So you cannot judge a person ever, not unless you somehow manage to learn their whole life.”

Richelle E. Goodrich
“We live our lives supposing things are as they appear to be when that is almost never the case.”

Criss Jami
“To be naive is to be unaware of how stupid and cruel other people are; but, by some definitions, ignorance is nearly the opposite of naivety in being a kind of cynicism, in being unaware of their intelligence and humanity. It seems to be a normal although unfortunate case that the great many of us consciously abhor ignorance in others yet subconsciously practice it ourselves: as naivety is apparent and well-known to inflict its damage upon oneself; whereas the alternative and the easier, ignorance, its damage upon others.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Mohsin Hamid

Debasish Mridha

Abhijit Naskar
“The only measure of judging a human being is through that person’s character, because character is not determined by race, religion, gender or social status. And one who recognizes this simple fact of human life behaves the same with the scientist, the janitor and the sex-worker.”
Abhijit Naskar, Human Making is Our Mission: A Treatise on Parenting

“One wrong move and everyone judges you .”

“We have a lot of In-SPECK-tor Gadgets in the body of Christ not qualified to remove specks! What do I look like telling you to take a bath if I stink? What do you look like telling me to brush my teeth when your breath smells horrible? Jesus would answer, “You look like a Hypocrite!”
Sandra M. Michelle, I'm Not Drunk I'm Praying: Dealing With Critical Spirits in the Church.

Naide P Obiang

Kate Douglas Wiggin
“I am not wise enough to say how much of all this squalor and wretchedness and hunger is the fault of the people themselves, how much of it belongs to circumstances and environment, how much is the result of past errors of government, how much is race, how much is religion. I only know that children should never be hungry, that there are ignorant human creatures to be taught how to live; and if it is a hard task, the sooner it is begun the better, both for teachers and pupils. It is comparatively easy to form opinions and devise remedies, when one knows the absolute truth of things; but it is so difficult to find the truth here, or at least there are so many and such different truths to weigh in the balance....”
Kate Douglas Wiggin, Penelope's Irish Experiences

Marietta Holley
“And then I sez—‘How is anybody a-goin’ to live pattern lives, when they are a-starvin' to death? And how is anybody a-goin’ to enjoy religion when they are a-chokin’?”
Marietta Holley, Samantha at the World's Fair

Emily St. John Mandel

Emily St. John Mandel, Station Eleven

Mohsin Hamid
“Children are excellent judges of character, you know”
Mohsin Hamid, Moth Smoke

Luvvie Ajayi Jones

“Never judge people based on their nationality, religion, race, gender, skin colour or look. Humans are all the same. They’re God’s loving children." Angel of Hope”

Scarlet Jei Saoirse
“Am I pretty?
Am I smart?
I want to do this or that. Do you think I can?

When you ask someone to judge you, that's exactly what they'll do. And gladly. That's why it's so important to believe in your self so deep that you can fail publicly and think nothing of it because you already know every other step up is failure. It's part of the process.”
Scarlet Jei Saoirse

Chinmai Swamy
“When you judge another person you are denying yourself the opportunity to grow and achieve your goals.”
Chinmai Swamy

Malcolm Gladwell
“If you knew my father, you would have seen him in other stressful situations, and you would have come to understand that the “frightened” face, for whatever reason, was simply not part of his repertoire. In crisis, he turned deadly calm. But if you didn’t know him, what would you have thought? Would you have concluded that he was cold? Unfeeling? When we confront a stranger, we have to substitute an idea—a stereotype—for direct experience. And that stereotype is wrong all too often.”
Malcolm Gladwell, Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know

Merida Johns
“Don’t make snap decisions, good or bad, about someone. Before forming an opinion, figure out what makes a person tick. Sam in Blackhorse Road A Novel”
Merida Johns, Blackhorse Road: A novel of deception and forgiveness and love gained and lost
