To check fault in oneself is pure loveliness
You break the mirror that remind you of your ugliness

The Genius is saying that the best of people are those who acknowledge and seek to address their personal flaws, while the unidentified “you” he’s rhyming at is the worst because that “you” is the kind of person who’d rather destroy their own possessions than confront their inadequacies.
