Favorite Quotes from Judge Judy

“I always say that when I see that needle starts to go in the other direction when people have had enough of me. I’m going to be smart enough to say goodbye. It’s such a joyous ride to be on top, and it takes away from that ride if you sort of ride it down.” – Judge Judy 

“Women watch and say, ‘I like watching you control your own space. It’s motivated me to do better, to go back to college, to even try law school. My daughter’s been watching you since she’s 10 – I love the fact that she’s watching a strong woman who’s in control.’ All of those things are good, positive things.” – Judge Judy

You lock your windows before you leave. You put on an alarm if you live in the country because you know that there are bad people out there. Well, in this Internet age, you know that there are bad people out there. And no matter what you do, those bad people are going to get into your house. – Judge Judy 

“While I sat in family court, I probably heard 20 or 25,000 cases. And I am sure, during the course of those cases, there were cases that I probably would’ve decided differently had I had either more time or been able to explore more. But all you can do as a judge is really give a case your best effort.” – Judge Judy 

“I really believe if you give people a product that couples entertainment with a little bit of education, a soft glove and sense of humor – especially about a subject people have begun to feel very frustrated about, which is the legal system – then you have a formula for success.” – Judge Judy
