“Do not think of your faults, still less of others' faults;

look for what is good and strong, and try to imitate it.

Your faults will drop off, like dead leaves, when their time comes.”
-John Ruskin-

Lovely shot Ruth and an interesting quote! Really made me think! Maybe the things I think are my faults may disappear in time! ;o)

It's true, what John Ruskin says. We can emphasize our faults or our strengths - it's up to us.

talj;I somehow feel that any faults you have are miniscule!

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
