But hear thee, Gratiano; Thou art too wild, too rude and bold of voice; Parts that become thee happily enough, And in such eyes as ours appear not faults; But where thou art not known, why, there they show Something too liberal. Pray thee, take pain To allay with some cold drops of modesty, Thy skipping spirit, lest through thy wild behavior, I be misconstrued in the place I go to, And lose my hopes.

He that thinks with more extent than another will want words of larger meaning; he that thinks with more subtilty will seek for terms of more nice discrimination; and where is the wonder, since words are but the images of things, that he who never knew the original should not know the copies?

He that reads and grows no wiser, seldom suspects his own deficiency; but complains of hard words and obscure sentences, and asks why books are written which cannot be understood?samuel johnson

I wanted:;to help myself and the listeners realise our own faults too to stop being so judgmental of others and to get ourselves out of the dogmatic boxes we have trapped ourselves in.dawud wharnsby

One who reveals your faults to you like a mirror is your true friend, and one who flatters you and covers up your faults is your enemy.
America's daily political vitriol is an undeniable fact. Against that depressing background, it is good to be able to celebrate an American invention which, for all its faults, tries to spread around the world a combination of unpaid idealism, knowledge and stubborn civility.
We ought not to be angry at their knowing our faults and despising us; it is but right that they should know us for what we are contemptible .
