Observe your enemies, for they first find out your faults.
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.ratu joni madraiwiwi
"Whatever my husband's faults may be, it can only aggravate the evil for me to hear them from a stranger's lips."anne brontë
I'm not conceited. Conceit is a fault, and I have no faults.david lee roth
How beautiful is candor! All faults may be forgiven of him who has perfect candor.walt whitman
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.
A private school has all the faults of a public school without any of its compensations.
England, with all thy faults I love thee still My country!william cowper
I consider as lovers of books not those who keep their books hidden in their store-chests and never handle them, but those who, by nightly as well as daily use thumb them, batter them, wear them out, who fill out all the margins with annotations of many kinds, and who prefer the marks of a fault they have erased to a neat copy full of faults.
Of the two classes of people, I hardly know which is to be regarded with most distaste, the vulgar aping the genteel, or the genteel constantly sneering at and endeavouring to distinguish themselves from the vulgar. ... True worth does not exult in the faults and deficiencies of others; as true refinement turns away from grossness and deformity, instead of being tempted to indulge in an unmanly triumph over it. ... Real power, real excellence, does not seek for a foil in inferiority; nor fear contamination from coming in contact with that which is coarse and homely.william hazlitt
For my own part, as I once said, I like a friend the better for having faults that one can talk about.william hazlitt
Be to her virtues very kind;Be to her faults a little blind.Matthew Prior
Before one blames, one should always find out whether one cannot excuse. To discover little faults has been always the particularity of such brains that are a little or not at all above the average. The superior ones keep quiet or say something against the whole and the great minds transform without blaming.Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
There are faults which show heart and win hearts, while the virtue in which there is no love, repels.john lancaster spalding
How beautiful is candor! All faults may be forgiven of him who has perfect candor.
Bad men excuse their faults, good men will leave them.Ben Jonson
You crystal break, for fear of breaking it: Careless and careful hands like faults commit.
Conscience is a coward, and those faults it has not strength to prevent, it seldom has justice enough to accuse.Oliver Goldsmith
Forgive yourself for your faults and your mistakes and move on.Leslie Calvin Brown
If you are looking for a friend who has no faults, you will have no friends.
Even so it was with me, when I was young: If we are nature’s, these are ours; this thorn Doth to our rose of youth rightly belong: Our blood to us, this to our blood is born; It is the show and seal of nature’s truth, Where love’s strong passion is impress’d in youth: By our remembrances of days foregone, Such were our faults; or then we thought them none. Her eye is sick on’t: I observe her now.
The Triumph of Wit is to make your good Nature subdue your Censure ; to be quick in seeing faults , and slow in exposing them. You are to consider, that the invisible thing called a Good Name , is made up of the Breath of Numbers that speak well of you; so that if by a disobliging Word you silence the meanest , the Gale will be less strong which is to bear up your Esteem .
