Don’t rely on outward appearances when making judgments.
I agree because appearances can sometimes be misleading. Like sometimes, I see people that look really mean, but I get to know them and I realize that they're actually really nice. When I talk about middle school with some of my friends, most time than not they'll tell me that they thought I was really mean but I actually wasn't.
Justice is always blind.
I disagree that justice is always blind. On the news sometimes, there were policemen killing other men, but the court let them go because the policemen claimed it as self defense. Justice isn't always blind, because people there are usually some exceptions when someone commits a crime but doesn't go to jail because they had an excuse.
A brotherly love between two friends can be just as strong as an intimate love between a man and a woman.
I agree that a brotherly love between two friends can be just as strong as an intimate love between a man and a woman. When there's relationships between men and women, I feel like the purpose of that is to be with someone that can help you to grow, support you, and help you reach your individual goals. They're kind of like your best friends, I think, that care about you and your success. But when there's a brotherly love between two friends, I feel like it's similar but not quite the same. It's similar in the way that those to friends can help each other to reach their goals, and support their decisions. In both relationships, the two people are kind of like really good best friends that care about each other.
You can break a promise as long as you have a good excuse.
I agree that you can break a promise as long as there is a good excuse. I don't remember the last time I broke a promise just because I usually don't make them, but there are some good examples of breaking a promise for a valid reason. Like if I promised my friend in preschool that I wouldn't tell the teacher she was going to climb a tree without the teacher looking, but I told the teacher after because it looked like she was in a dangerous position. Or if two people promise to love each other forever, that could be broken for a good reason. If they aren't happy with each other it would be okay to not be with that person if they are both unhappy people. I think in the end, it'll be okay to break a promise when it comes to health and safety.
Love is blind.
I disagree for the most part that love is blind. I feel that I would agree if it was a few years ago. But, now I have a lot of friends that get into relationships super fast because the boy looks good, or the girl looks good. They don't care how bad they are treated or how dumb they could be.. I feel like most people now go for the looks.
Stereotypes are often right.
I disagree with this statement because not all stereotypes are correct and most of the time I feel that they are wrong. There are some boys that people think are gay because they dress more feminine than other guys and they're around girls all time, but they aren't gay. It's just kind of what people think now, because some gay people are like that. I also know that some people don't think that athletes are the smartest because of all the movies that they watch, but that's also wrong because not all athletes are dumb. I think that now we usually just base everything off how other people act and dress instead of getting to know them first and then decide.
An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth is a good motto to live by.
I disagree with this motto and I think that it's kind of a personal thing. If I gave someone something, I wouldn't expect them to give anything to me or anything like that. For example, when I give food to my friends, I usually do it because I have food and they don't and I don't feel like being mean. I don't expect anything back because I feel that that would be sort of a selfish mentality. But, this does go to a certain extent. So like if I gave my friend a lot of money, I'd want them to pay me back because its a lot of money. But more often times than most, I disagree with this because I usually don't expect anything back when I give to other people.
