Richelle E. Goodrich
“Perhaps, if you weren't so busy regarding my shortcomings, you'd find that I do possess redeeming qualities, discreet as they may be.  I notice when the sky is blue.  I smile down at children.  I laugh at any innocent attempt at humor.  I quietly carry the burdens of others as though they were my own.  And I say 'I'm sorry' when you don't.  I am not without fault, but I am not without goodness either.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, and Grumblings for Every Day of the Year

“Liars are highly unlikely to admit their lies, never mind apologize for the hurt they’ve caused. Liars don’t genuinely apologize. Deceit has become their full-out lifestyle. They are centered on themselves with no thoughts of the consequences of their lies. In cowardly style, they tell more lies to try and cover their tracks. They are not good at admitting they actually have shortcomings.”
Cathy Burnham Martin, The Bimbo Has Brains: And Other Freaky Facts

“Eden fruitarianism is about exposing denial, it's about recognising the invalidity of feeble excuses, it's about unveiling meaningless pretexts, and it's about taking responsibility for all of our actions, facing the consequences of them with honesty and integrity, and finally, and of most significance, it's about making whatever changes are necessary in recognition of our shortcomings.”
Mango Wodzak, Destination Eden - Eden Fruitarianism Explained

Karen Horney

Karen Horney, Neurosis and Human Growth: The Struggle Towards Self-Realization

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“To incessantly blame others for my shortcomings is cowardice borne of fear, fed by fear, and haunted by fear. To be steadfastly accountable for my shortcomings is bravery borne of God, fed by God, and blessed by God.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“I also often ask my guests about what they consider to be their invisible weaknesses and shortcomings. I do this because these are the characteristics that define us no less than our strengths. What we feel sets us apart from other people is often the thing that shapes us as individuals. This may be especially true of writers and actors, many of whom first started to develop their observational skills as a result of being sidelined from typical childhood or adolescent activities because of an infirmity or a feeling of not fitting in. Or so I’ve come to believe from talking to so many writers and actors over the years.”
Terry Gross, All I Did Was Ask: Conversations with Writers, Actors, Musicians, and Artists

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“However far I’ve come, it’s probably somewhere less than halfway of where I could be if I simply believed in myself.”

Ramana Pemmaraju

Paddick Van Zyl
“David’s life is example enough of what it is to live in a broken world. He experienced the
clashing of private grief and public duty. He knew deceit and turmoil, heartache, struggling.
But he also knew how to cling to God, how to trust in God and how to worship God. There is
nothing that ever catches God by surprise since He knows everything (omniscient) and sees
everything. Our entire life is laid open bare before God, as was David's. God already knows
about the 'mess­ups' and shortcomings that will cause us to stumble. It is our repentant
attitude that makes all the difference.”
Paddick Van Zyl, God's King: Lessons From The Life and Times Of King David

“It is easy to discuss the faults in others, and hard to disseminate our own shortcomings.”
Barbara Januszkiewicz

Gina Greenlee
“If we never challenge our shortcomings, we ensure that they remain our Achilles' heel.”

“I once was a man with promise and potential. Then doubt whispered in my ear and I became less than I could have been, all because I listened and believed.”
B J Huculak

Abhijit Naskar
“You are defective – you are imperfect – you are far from the best version of yourself – but you have a 3 pound of lump of jelly inside your skull containing more nerve cells than there are stars in our galaxy, so be aware of this magnificent and miraculous possession of yours, because with that very awareness will you be able to trump all your shortcomings and imperfections and rise above them as the Lord Saint victorious.”
Abhijit Naskar, Saint of The Sapiens

Ann Beattie
“I guess that I have been thinking about how graceful you were, and although it is none of my business, I wondered whether you might not be paying a price for being that way. . . . People want to have an easy fix on other people, and since you are Cindi Coeur, it's easy to assume that someone who satirizes our shortcomings has set herself above us.”
Ann Beattie, Love Always

Scott Lynch
“That’s that. Put it in your hat and wear it to town, Locke. We need to face our shortcomings head on. The old saying for a gang is, ‘‘Lies go out, but the truth stays home’’.”
Scott Lynch, The Lies of Locke Lamora

Ada Limon
“Mostly, I enjoy my failings. Until I don't.”
Ada Limon, Bright Dead Things

“Isn't it ironic that we often condemn in others what we hate in ourselves? We project our shortcomings on others and confront them in their lives, not in ours. We excuse our weaknesses, but sharply oppose the same weaknesses in others. We discharge and acquit our misdemeanors but hold others accountable for theirs. In what is an obvious injustice, we consider the log in our eyes too small to be seen but the speck in others' eyes too big to be ignored.”
Abiodun Fijabi

Wayne Gerard Trotman
“Know your weaknesses and respect them.”
Wayne Gerard Trotman

Criss Jami
“Before awakening, the order of the day brings quite the bite, a sting - a find in light of dreams. Like nightmares' love supreme, phenomenology sings of the unconscious this highly common theme: '...Seeking sovereignty...Using fragments of things...The mind, it tries and pines...For a rise by false wings...And hides one's shortcomings...Behind the heights of these...Lofty philosophies...' And that's the fall of kings.”
Criss Jami
