Have no fear of perfection — you'll never reach it.
If I only had a little humility, I'd be perfect.
I do what most women do. I meet someone and some of it's right, maybe he looks right, or has the right job, or the right background, and, instead of sitting back and waiting for him to reveal his other bits, I make them up. I decide how he thinks, how he's going to treat me, and, sure enough, every time I conclude that this time he's definitely my perfect man, and all of a sudden, well, not so suddenly perhaps, usually around six months after we've split up, I see that he wasn't the person I thought he was at all.
—Jane Green in Mr. Maybe
The perfection of art is to conceal art.
I never expect to see a perfect work from imperfect man.
Perfection is a road, not a destination. Every time I live, I get an education.
I do think imperfection's underrated.
