Today's quotes begin with the fact that there is no need for comparisons:
"Nothing is good or bad but by comparison."
-- Thomas Fuller
Fuller states that comparison is the problem not the solution. Things are just the way they are: good or bad. To compare them is what makes them good or bad.
"Do not judge and you will never be mistaken."
-- Jean Jacques Rousseau
To judge, as Rousseau states, means that judging something or someone makes you wrong. That is, by judging, you are manufacturing your own preconceived notions about that something or someone, based on your own perceptions of who you think they are.
