Perfection quotes
Perfection
Perfection has one grave defect. It is apt to be dull.

- Maugham, W. Somerset
In order to deserve, we must pay our dues and steadily work for perfection. We must relish in struggle, and relinquish pride. We must dispel fear and seek enlightenment. We must shun division and honor love. We must know our hearts and seek to understand others. We must try, live, create, feel, grow and love.

- Bryant McGill
A diamond with a flaw is worth more than a pebble without imperfections.

- Chinese Proverb
Finality is death. Perfection is finality. Nothing is perfect. There are lumps in it, said the Philosopher.

- Stephens, James
All excellent things are as difficult as they are rare.

- Spinoza, Baruch (Benedict de)
The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.

Action is the highest perfection and drawing forth of the utmost power, vigor, and activity of man's nature.

- South, Bishop Robert
You have to let people see what you wrote. It will never be perfect, but perfect is overrated. Perfect is boring.

- Tina Fey
The indefatigable pursuit of an unattainable perfection --even though nothing more than the pounding of an old piano --is what alone gives a meaning to our life on this unavailing star.

- Smith, Logan Pearsall
Perfection is perfectly simple; fouling things up requires true skill.

- Horton, Doug
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
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
No one ever approaches perfection except by stealth, and unknown to themselves.

- Hazlitt, William
I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.

- Michael J. Fox
So much perfection argues rottenness somewhere.

- Webb, Beatrice Potter
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.
There is nothing in machinery, there is nothing in embankments and railways and iron bridges and engineering devices to oblige them to be ugly. Ugliness is the measure of imperfection.

- Wells, H.G.
The world itself is pregnant with failure, is the perfect manifestation of imperfection, of the consciousness of failure.

- Miller, Henry
Of all the nations in the world, the United States was built in nobody's image. It was the land of the unexpected, of unbounded hope, of ideals, of quest for an unknown perfection. It is all the more unfitting that we should offer ourselves in images. And all the more fitting that the images which we make wittingly or unwittingly to sell America to the world should come back to haunt and curse us.

- Boorstin, Daniel J.
It is no crime not to be perfect
