Don’t Judge

If you see someone who has achieved a prominent position but whose behavior is inappropriate, do not say, “if I were in his place, I wouldn’t do as he does.” You do not know what tomorrow will bring, and you are no different from him or anyone else. Perhaps that prestigious position would sway you as it has swayed him. Only when you reach his place and his position and overcome your own tendencies will you have the right to question his conduct. ~ Rabbeinu Yonah of Gerondi (D. 1263)
