A brother who recognizes that we have shortcomings, we, in the struggle, have faults, and that he wanted to reconcile differences.
Conscience is a coward, and those faults it has not strength enough to prevent it seldom has justice enough to accuse.
My guiltiest pleasure is Harry Stephen Keeler. He may have been the greatest bad writer America has ever produced. Or perhaps the worst great writer. I do not know. There are few faults you can accuse him of that he is not guilty of. But I love him.
Everything becomes so problematic because of basic faults: from a discontent with myself.
The mystery of existence is the connection between our faults and our misfortunes.
Madame de Stael
I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect.
Strive to attain to the greater virtues, but do not neglect the lesser ones. Do not make light of a fall even if it be the most venial of faults; rather, be quick to repair it by repentance, although many others may commit a large number of faults, slight and grievous, and remain unrepentant.
I may have many faults, but being wrong ain't one of them.
My friend is he who will tell me my faults in private.
Solomon Ibn Gabirol
I tolerate my faults but not at all other people's.
I am British. I love Britain for all its faults and all its virtues. My husband is American and I am largely based in Los Angeles, but whenever someone asks me where home is, I automatically say 'London.'
Our own self-love draws a thick veil between us and our faults.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield

I might have faults but I'm not a big head.
The practice mirror is to be used for the correction of faults, not for a love affair, and the figure you watch should not become your dearest friend.
Agnes de Mille
We're not perfect; we all have things that people might not like to see, and I like to show my faults.
We make mistakes, we have our faults, and God knows some of us have more than our share, but when danger threatens and duty calls, we go smiling to our own funeral.
Faults are beauties in a lover's eye.
To us Americans much has been given; of us much is required. With all our faults and mistakes, it is our strength in support of the freedom our forefathers loved which has saved mankind from subjection to totalitarian power.
I can feel pretty critical of people, and I understand that sort of feeling of when you're going through something that's painful, taking it out on the world and projecting onto other people, finding faults with other people because it's harder to find faults in yourself.
I think we have to face right in the center of the hurricane, if you will, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s foibles and faults. I think that we do no good to ourselves and do no honor to him by pretending that he did not fail, that he did not wrestle greatly and, at times, surrender to his own sins and his own faults and failures.
Michael Eric Dyson
The greatest gift God has given me is the capacity of love for people. I have so many faults, but caring about people is not one of them.
