Man holding a magnifying glass over his eyeTwo prominent dignitaries were attending a high-level meeting.  As they waited for the meeting to begin, they were engaged in conversation when Sir Winston Churchill arrived and took a seat just two rows ahead of them.  Almost immediately, the tone and topic of their conversation became shallow.
“There’s Churchill,” one said.  “They say hi s health is failing rapidly.”
The other replied, “Yes, and they say he is growing quite senile, too.”
After a few moments, Churchill, turned and said the two men, “They also say he’s hard of hearing.”

How easy it is to confess the secret faults of others…how easy it is to choose not to use the same lens when looking at ourselves.
