Perfection quotes
Perfection
No good work whatever can be perfect, and the demand for perfection is always a sign of a misunderstanding of the ends of art.

- Ruskin, John
He is the half part of a blessed man, Left to be finished by such as she; And she a fair divided excellence, Whose fulness of perfection lies in him.

- William Shakespeare
Artists who seek perfection in everything are those who cannot attain it in anything.

- Eugene Delacroix
Perfectionism is simply putting a limit on your future. When you have an idea of perfect in your mind, you open the door to constantly comparing what you have now with what you want. That type of self criticism is significantly deterring.

- John Eliot, Ph.D.
It is only imperfection that complains of what is imperfect. The more perfect we are the more gentle and quiet we become towards the defects of others.

- Addison, Joseph
Imperfection clings to a person, and if they wait till they are brushed off entirely, they would spin for ever on their axis, advancing nowhere.

- Carlyle, Thomas
But no perfection is so absolute, That some impurity doth not pollute.

- William Shakespeare
I am one of those who believe that spiritual progress is a rule of human life, but the approach to perfection is slow and painful. If a woman elevates herself in one respect and is retarded in another, it is because the rough trail that leads to the mountain peak is not free of ambushes of thieves and lairs of wolves.

- Kahlil Gibran
Perfecting is our destiny, but perfection never our lot.

- Weber, C. J.
The principal mark of genius is not perfection but originality, the opening of new frontiers.

- Koestler, Arthur
Perfection of means and confusion of goals seem -- in my opinion -- to characterize our age.

- Einstein, Albert
We never taste happiness in perfection, our most fortunate successes are mixed with sadness.

- Corneille, Pierre
Look at those thousand birds, and without our Father not one of them shall fall to the ground; and art thou not of more value than many sparrows--thou for whom God sent His Son to die? . . . Ah! my friend, we must look out and around to see what God is like. It is when we persist in turning our eyes inward, and prying curiously over our own imperfections, that we learn to make a god after our own image, and fancy that our own hardness and darkness are the patterns of His light and love.

- Hypatia, chap. xi.
Fix your eyes on perfection and you make almost everything speed towards it.

- Channing, William Ellery
I think I may define taste to be that faculty of the soul which discerns the beauties of an author with pleasure, and the imperfections with dislike.

- Joseph Addison
Perfectionism is the enemy of creation, as extreme self-solitude is the enemy of well-being.

- Updike, John
Be ye therefore perfect, eve as your Father who is in heaven is perfect.

- Bible
Perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add but when there is no longer anything to take away, when a body has been stripped down to its nakedness.

- Saint-Exupery, Antoine De
Nothing would be done at all if one waited until one could do it so well that no one could find fault with it.

- Newman, Cardinal J.
Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew -

- Francis De Sales, St.
