To offend and judge are distinct offices,
And of opposed natures.
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Portia, in The Merchant of Venice, act 2, sc. 9, l. 61-2.
To the Prince of Aragon, who has judged badly in choosing the silver casket, and is offended because he feels he deserves better.
