A bit about Henry Ward Beecher ...

Henry Ward Beecher (June 24, 1813 - March 8, 1887) was a theologically liberal American Congregationalist clergyman and reformer, and author who was born in Litchfield, Connecticut, the eighth of nine children of Lyman Beecher by his first wife (and the eighth of thirteen children in all). One of his elder sisters was Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin.

I personally don't like this quote. Just say accept your friends' faults, it's what makes them who they are. Sometimes faults can be unbearable so why bury it. STUPID quote.
