A Quote by Oliver Goldsmith on beginning, charity, faults, merit, pity, pride, and virtue

Careless their merits or their faults to scan, His pity gave ere charity began. Thus to relieve the wretched was his pride, And even his failings lean'd to Virtue's side.

A Quote by Oliver Goldsmith on boredom, certainty, day, disaster, faults, jokes, kindness, laughter, learning, and love

Well had the boding tremblers learn'd to trace The day's disasters in his morning face; Full well they laugh'd with counterfeited glee At all his jokes, for many a joke had he; Full well the busy whisper circling round Convey'd the dismal tidings when he frown'd. Yet was he kind, or if severe in aught, The love he bore to learning was in fault; The village all declar'd how much he knew, 'Twas certain he could write and cipher too.

Conscience is a coward, and those faults it has not strength enough to prevent it seldom has justice enough to accuse.

A Quote by Prophet Muhammad on brothers, day, faults, god, islam, knowledge, paradise, world, and path

If anyone removes (one of the) anxieties of this world from a believer, God will remove (one of the) anxieties from him on the Day of Resurrection; if one smoothes the way for one who is destitute, God will smooth the way for him in this world and the next; and if anyone conceals the faults of a Muslim, God will conceal his faults in this world and the next. God helps a man as long as he helps his brother. If anyone pursues a path in search of knowledge God will thereby make easy for him a path to paradise.

A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on correction, deception, evil, existence, faults, good, love, and self-love

Self-love makes us deceive ourselves in almost all matters, to censure others, and to blame them for the same faults that we do not correct in ourselves; we do this either because we are unaware of the evil that exists within us, or because we always see our own evil disguised as a good.

A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on belief, confession, criticism, faults, kindness, order, reason, suffering, vanity, and wishes

There is no more reason to accuse ourselves excessively of our failings than to excuse them overmuch. He who goes overboard in self-criticism often does so in order not to suffer others' criticisms, or else does so out of a kind of vanity that wishes to make others believe that he knows how to confess his faults.
