[ Also see Character Defects Error Guilt Lying Mischief Sin Vice Wickedness ]

Her only fault--and that is faults enough--
  Is that she is intolerable curst,
    And shrewd and froward, so beyond all measure,
      That were my state far worser than it is
        I would not wed her for a mine of gold.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Taming of the Shrew
         (Hortensio at I, ii)

Is she not a wilderness of faults and follies?
      - Richard Brinsley Sheridan

God Himself allows certain faults; and often we say, "I have deserved to err; I have deserved to be ignorant."
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

Only those faults which we encounter in ourselves are insufferable to us in others.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

It is not so much the being exempt from faults as the having overcome them that is an advantage to us; it being with the follies of the mind as with weeds of a field, which if destroyed and consumed upon the place where they grow, enrich and improve it more than if none had ever sprung there.
      - Jonathan Swift

Confession of our faults is the next thing to innocency.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

He who overlooks a fault, invites the commission of another.
  [Lat., Invitat culpam qui delictum praeterit.]
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

Unless you bear with the faults of a friend, you betray your own.
  [Lat., Amici vitium ni feras, prodis tuum.]
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

For tho' the faults were thick as dust
  In vacant chambers, I could trust
    Your kindness.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, To the Queen (st. 5)

Faults are beauties in a lover's eye.
      - Theocritus

'Tis a meaner part of sense to find a fault than taste an excellence.
      - John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester
