Gautama Buddha on Living the Dhamma


To pass judgment hurriedly doesn’t mean you’re a judge.
The wise one, weighing right and wrong, judges others impartially —
unhurriedly, in line with the Dhamma, guarding the Dhamma,
guarded by Dhamma, intelligent: he’s called a judge.
— Gautama Buddha, Dhammapada, v. 256-257
