QUOTATION: How to Think of Your Faults

St. Francis de Sales
It is necessary to detest your defects, not with a detestation of trouble and vexation, but with a tranquil detestation, to behold them with patience, and to make them serve to lower you in your own esteem. Regard your faults with more compassion than indignation, more humility than severity, and preserve your heart full of a sweet, calm, peaceful love.

--St. Francis de Sales, Consoling Thoughts
