Phaedrus - The vices of men

Jupiter has placed two saddlebags on us: the one full of our vices behind our backs, the one heavy with the vices of others hung in front of us, on our chest.
For this reason we cannot see our own faults, but as soon as others make mistakes, we become censors.

[ Peras imposuit Iuppiter nobis duas:
Propriis repletam vitiis post tergum dedit,
Alienis ante pectus suspendit gravem.

Hac re videre nostra mala non possumus;
Alii simul delinquunt, censores sumus.]
