Don't blame others!

“We believe that to err is human. To blame it on someone else is politics.” - Hubert H. Humphrey

"We seldom suspect faults in others that we don't possess ourselves."

The best of men is he who sees his own faults and does not see the faults of others.

“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.” - Albert Ellis

A wise man is one who forgets the faults of others, but always remembers his own.

“It is not only what we do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable.” - Moliere

“If you blame others for your failures, do you credit them with your success?”

“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won't succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.” - Wayne Dyer

“When you blame others, you give up your power to change.” - Dr. Robert Anthony

Blaming others is the easy way... takes some courage to admit to mistakes, and move out of the negativity!
