It is time to move forward together. Stronger for the bitter experiences we have shared, wiser for the suffering inflicted on us and more compassionate for having the capacity to forgive. For all its faults and cruelties, Fiji remains a country full of promise and hope simply demonstrated by the goodwill that has endured and the love we have for this land that is our home.

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.
Kindness and courage can repair time's faults, And serving him breeds patience and courtesy In us, light sojourners and passing subjects.Edwin Muir

Conscience is a coward, and those faults it has not strength enough to prevent it seldom has justice enough to accuse.Oliver Goldsmith
All his faults are such that one loves him still the better for them.Oliver Goldsmith
We have the tendency to judge others by their surface appearance, and to find only their negative qualities. But if we search beneath the surface we discover that a myriad of strains mix together to create a particular person’s nature. The faults we perceive are likely to be the effect of circumstances, the psychological response to trauma, abuse, rejection, heartbreak, insecurity, pain, confusion, or disease.radhanath swami

Giraldus, garrulous, egotistic, spiteful, as he is, makes us half forget his faults in the endless instruction, the endless amusement, of his pages.gerald of wales
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? Yet vanity inclines us to find faults any where rather than in ourselves. 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
We can love with all our hearts those in whom we recognize great faults. It would be impertinent to believe that perfection alone has the right to please us; sometimes our weaknesses attach us to each other as much as our virtues.vauvenargues, luc de clapiers, marquis de
I included songs which were aimed at making listeners think a little more deeply about faith in general. People of The Boxes for example, is not just a fable with implied reference to Jews and Christians , but it also points out that we who call ourselves " Muslims " are also living in a box sometimes. 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
The greatest of faults, I should say, is to be conscious of none.thomas carlyle
England, with all thy faults, I love thee still My Country! and, while yet a nook is left Where English minds and manners may be found, Shall be constrained to love thee.william cowper
Time shall unfold what plighted cunning hides: Who cover faults, at last shame them derides.william shakespeare
Nothing will make us so charitable and tender to the faults of others as by self-examination thoroughly to know our own.
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.
Olivia: Go to, you're a dry fool; I'll no more of you; besides, you grow dishonest. Feste: Two faults, madonna, that drink and good counsel will amend: for give the dry fool drink, then is the fool not dry; bid the dishonest man mend himself; if he mend, he is no longer dishonest; if he cannot, let the botcher mend him; any thing that's mended is but patched; virtue that transgresses is but patched with sin; and sin that amends is but patched with virtue.
