From the Omaha Daily Bee, November 30, 1912. The other fellow’s faults loom big There is no doubt of that We always see him at his worst And have his flaws down pat. We’re always quick to recognize The weaknesses he’s shown But, after all, they’re not so big When measured by our own. If we would take the other chap And size him up by us And think about the things we’ve done When he does so and thus, And note the selfish ways we have, We might not throw the stone; His flaws might not appear so great When measured by our own. It’s mighty easy to map out The other fellow’s way, To say what virtues he should have, What he should do today. But we should always bear in mind The pitfalls we have known, And judge his weaknesses by those Decidedly our own. When we are on life’s level path, The other chap may be Down on the rough and rugged road, And all those faults we see Are, no doubt, faults we too had When fighting on alone, And maybe, too, they’re very small When measured by our own.
