Examples of judgement in a Sentence

  1. Neil Ferguson:

    I accept I made an error of judgement and took the wrong course of action. I have therefore stepped back from my involvement in SAGE.

  2. Howard Zinn:

    Was all this bloodshed and deceit - from Columbus to Cortes, Pizarro the Puritans - a necessity for the human race to progress from savagery to civilization? Was Morison right in burying the story of genocide inside a more important story of human progress? Perhaps a persuasive argument can be made - as it was made by Stalin when he killed pesants for industrial progress in the Soviet Union, as it was made by Churchill explaining the bombings of Dresden and Hamburg, and Truman explaining Hiroshima. But how can the judgement be made if the benefits and losses cannot be balanced because the losses are either unmentioned or mentioned quickly?

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Good judgement comes from valuable experience; and paradoxically, such "valuable experience" is the direct product of many bad judgements made in the past.

  4. Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th earl of Chesterfield, 1749:

    That ready wit, which you so partially allow me, ... may create many admirers; but, take my word for it, it makes few friends. It shines and dazzles like the noonday sun, but, like that, too, it is very apt to scorch, and therefore is always feared. The milder morning and evening light and heat of that planet soothe and calm our minds. Never seek for wit; if it present itself, well and good; but even then, let your judgement interpose, and take care that it be not at the expense of anybody.

  5. Myra Becker:

    I think the Republican Congress people are wimps. I guess, whatever word may be better, you use your judgement.
