Faults are bad friends. I have watched two seagulls chasing a kestrel away from the safety of the shore. Seeing this, others join the chase to hunt it down into the water and drown it. Faults are like that. They are not worth defending or justifying. They are false friends and will attract more like them, which will drag you down until they drown you.
NEW PROJECT: MAKE A LIST OF YOUR VIRTUES! Purify them. Consolidate them. Find new ones. They are real friends which will journey with you until the end. The real End. The end of suffering.
