August 31, 2022 8:00 AM EST
Check out these awesome judging others quotes for a good refresher on the importance of treating others how you would like to be treated.
We live in a judgmental world. Some even say to judge is to be human.
A person can’t make it through life without experiencing judgment or doing some judgment of their own.
Judgment can be a powerful tool to help us make the best decisions on our journey.
For example, we need to discern what we prefer and do not prefer.
Writer Naide Obiang suggests that we “Do not judge. Assess.”
What is the difference between a judgment and an assessment?
Well, for starters, an assessment does not have any emotional charge. There is no spark of feeling in the assessment.
A judgment invalidates that which we do not prefer.
An assessment considers the conditions and provides us input for decision-making.
Being mindful about how we come to conclusions and judgments is excellent for mental health.

As the collection of Judging Others Quotes shows, nobody knows everything about everyone.
It is unwise to judge what we do not know.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky is one of Russia’s most well-known writers. Judgment is a central theme in much of writing.
Dostoyevsky was charged, judged, and sentenced to prison, where he did years of hard labor.
As a man who saw others judged harshly and experienced the consequences of being judged, he wisely noted, “Judge [people] not by what they are, but by what they strive to become.”
This outlook allows us to see the best in others. It does not mean pretending to look over all of a person’s traits.
However, it does mean that people can change, and we should not limit their growth based on their past.
If we do our best to accept what we cannot control and make judgments based on what could become in addition to what is, we will benefit greatly.
