Chapter 4 Mishnah 9
Rabbi Yishmael his son says: One who withdraws from judgment removes from himself hatred, robbery and the responsibility for an unnecessary oath; while one who is too self-confident in handing down legal decisions is a fool, wicked and arrogant of spirit.
It is a sign of wisdom to take all the time necessary before issuing a pronouncement. Conversely, a person who hurries to issue judgment displays a definite sign of foolishness.
