I have read an Islamic quote that I like very much: "All praise is due to Allah; all the mistakes have been mine."
Can anyone think of a Jewish source that expresses a similar concept?

"The Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice; a God of faithfulness and without iniquity, righteous and just is He. Is corruption His? No; His children's is the blemish" - Deuteronomy 32:4
The posuk in Nechemiah 9:33 says the same thing:
וְאַתָּה צַדִּיק עַל כָּל-הַבָּא עָלֵינוּ: כִּי-אֱמֶת עָשִׂיתָ וַאֲנַחְנוּ הִרְשָׁעְנוּ.
"You are just in all that has come upon us; for You have dealt truly and we have done wickedly."
Also Pharaoh proclaimed in Shemos 9:27:
ה' הַצַּדִּיק וַאֲנִי וְעַמִּי הָרְשָׁעִים.
"The Lord is the righteous One, and I and my people are the guilty ones."
