The mystery of existence is the connection between our faults and our misfortunes.
Madame de Stael
I may have many faults, but being wrong ain't one of them.
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.
My friend is he who will tell me my faults in private.
Solomon Ibn Gabirol
It is in our faults and failings, not in our virtues, that we touch each other, and find sympathy. It is in our follies that we are one.
Jerome K. Jerome
I'm human, I feel, I understand. That's the highest level of love, is understanding - when you can understand someone, when you can love them with their flaws and their faults. So I understand, I consider. I may speak the truth, but I'll consider your feelings, too.
I tolerate my faults but not at all other people's.
People may flatter themselves just as much by thinking that their faults are always present to other people's minds, as if they believe that the world is always contemplating their individual charms and virtues.

A husband without faults is a dangerous observer.
Our own self-love draws a thick veil between us and our faults.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
My general plan is good, though in the detail there may be faults.
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 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.
We're not perfect; we all have things that people might not like to see, and I like to show my faults.
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.
Faults are beauties in a lover's eye.
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.
Never exaggerate your faults, your friends will attend to that.
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.
Communication between band-mates is imperative. Communication is the key to any healthy relationship. If I need to be checked, I expect to hear it put in plain words what my faults are, and give my band-mates the ultimate consideration by shutting up and listening, then acting on the advice given. Same goes for anyone else in any band.
If the best man's faults were written on his forehead, he would draw his hat over his eyes.
The common faults of American language are an ambition of effect, a want of simplicity, and a turgid abuse of terms.
James F. Cooper
I think we have to face right in the center of the hurricane, if you will, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s foibles and faults.

Michael Eric Dyson
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
