Be wary of passing the judgment: obscure. To find something obscure poses no difficult, elephants and poodles find many things obscure
It is with our judgments as with our watches: no two go just alike, yet each believes his own
Don't wait for the last judgment - it takes place every day
A fox should not be of the jury at a goose's trial
No one should be judge in his own cause
It is well not to lend too easy an ear to accusations
Every accusation against a fallen man gains credence
A hasty judgment is a first step to recantation
It is better to risk saving a guilty man than to condemn an innocent one
Scarcely any degree of judgment is sufficient to restrain the imagination from magnifying that on which it is long detained

On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
