I suspect the secret of personal attraction is locked up in our unique imperfections, flaws and frailties.
— Hugh Mackay

A poem might be defined as thinking about feelings - about human feelings and frailties.
Anne Stevenson frailties quote

It sounds cliched, but superheroes can be lonely, vain, arrogant and proud. Often they overcome these human frailties for the greater good.
— Tom Hiddleston

Ninety per cent of the world's woe comes from people not knowing themselves, their abilities, their frailties, and even their real virtues. Most of us go almost all the way through life as complete strangers to ourselves -- so how can we know anyone else?
— Sydney J. Harris

Mankind's common instinct for reality has always held the world to be essentially a theatre for heroism. In heroism, we feel, life's supreme mystery is hidden. We tolerate no one who has no capacity whatever for it in any direction. On the other hand, no matter what a man's frailties otherwise may be, if he be willing to risk death, and still more if he suffer it heroically, in the service he has chosen, the fact consecrates him forever.
— frailties quotation by William James
