On Faults

   You could spy faults if your eyes were out.

   Conceal defects for charity and cover up small faults.

   A fault once denied is twice committed.

   Where love fails we espy all faults.

   Faults in the life breed errors in the brain,
     And these reciprocally those again.

   Denying a fault doubles it.

   Not to repent of a fault is to justify it.

   A fault confessed is half redressed.

   However blind a man may be, 
     Another's faults he is sure to see.
