For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith excellence, to excellence, knowledge;—2 Pet 1:5 NET
You will find it less easy to unroot faults than to choke them by gaining virtues. Do not think of your faults, still less of others’ faults; in every person who comes near you look for what is good and strong; honor that; rejoice in it, and, as you can, try to imitate it; and your faults will drop off, like dead leaves, when their time comes. — John Ruskin.
