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.
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.'
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.
Our own self-love draws a thick veil between us and our faults.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
A husband without faults is a dangerous observer.

Faults are beauties in a lover's eye.
My general plan is good, though in the detail there may be faults.

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

Communication between band-mates is imperative. Communication is the key to any healthy relationship.

Same goes for anyone else in any band.

What I love about 'Breaking Bad' is the reflection of many people's - it's more real in terms of people have faults, people have character traits that they don't like about themselves.

There's something about the openness of the American people. Yes, we have our faults, but deep down, there's a goodness. America doesn't want to take over the world; in many ways, we don't want to be bothered by the rest of the world.
I have a lot of faults. I often interrupt in meetings. I talk too loud. I talk too fast.
The more famous you become, the less people will tell you your faults.

Henry Cabot Lodge
John F. Kennedy
