Fable Aesop
The Two Bags
printer friendly version
Every man, according to an ancient legend, is born into the world
with two bags suspended from his neck-- a small bag in front
full of his neighbors' faults, and a large bag behind filled with his
own faults. Hence it is that men are quick to see the faults of
others, and yet are often blind to their own failings.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
