Perfection quotes by Marina & The Diamonds
#1. Homewrecker"

Every boyfriend is the one
Until otherwise proven
The good are never easy
The easy never good
And love it never happens like you think it really should

Deception and perfection are wonderful traits
One will breed love
The other hate
You'll find me in the lonely hearts
Under 'I'm after a brand new start'

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker

Girls and their curls and their gourmet vomit
Boys and their toys and their six inch rockets
We're all very lovely 'til we get to know each other
As we stop becoming friends and we start becoming lovers

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)

I'm only happy when I'm on the run
I break a million hearts just for fun
I don't belong to anyone

I guess you could say that my life's a mess
But I'm still looking pretty in this dress
I'm the image of deception

When everything is life and death
You may feel like there's nothing left
Instead of love #Quote by Marina & The Diamonds
Perfection quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#2. Benedict sets up a community, a family. And families, the honest among us will admit, are risky places to be if perfection is what y ou are expecting in life. #Quote by Joan D. Chittister
Perfection quotes by Emily Ley
#3. God cares more about us abiding by His commandments and loving big - feeling deeply alive and free from the traps of perfection and comparison. He's watching us scurry about, saying, "Sweet girls, why are you so hard on yourselves? All this worry and busyness is for what? I've given you all you need. #Quote by Emily Ley
Perfection quotes by J.  Daniels
#4. Gone for you fast, Wild," he began. Can't explain it. Don't know how it happened or what it was about you specifically that got to me, but you fuckin' got to me, babe, and it was good. Best I'd felt in a long time, maybe ever. Didn't want to risk anything messing that kind of perfection up. It was too good the way we had it, your voice in my ear, what you'd give me every time we spoke. I was living for that. #Quote by J. Daniels
Perfection quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#5. . . . still we are none of us perfect . . . #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Perfection quotes by J.D. Robb
#6. People who expect perfection in a mate miss a lot of fun - and sweetness. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Perfection quotes by Stewart Cink
#7. A beginner gets so excited when he hits the ball in the air or maybe hits a nice bunker shot. A player who has won major championships doesn't get that excited about those shots anymore. It takes a lot more to excite you. The closer you get to perfection, the more difficult it becomes. That's what draws me to golf. It's such a challenge. #Quote by Stewart Cink
Perfection quotes by T. Scott McLeod
#8. You had to break, to be unbroken. In the brokenness, I had found, that which was unbroken. That which was perfect, and beautiful, and complete. #Quote by T. Scott McLeod
Perfection quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#9. I view great cities as pestilential to the morals, the health, and the liberties of man. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Perfection quotes by Alice Clayton
#10. It wasn't love or lust, but something we both recognized as a possibility of something. It was so pure, so uninhibited … We just threw ourselves into it. These moments that were little pockets of perfection. It was like nothing else mattered. Just us. #Quote by Alice Clayton
Perfection quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#11. God created us to be worshipers because it is right that he be known, loved and worshiped. This isn't because he is needy and wishes someone would tell him how special he is. No, it's because he is perfect and the worship of his perfection is holiness in action. #Quote by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
Perfection quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#12. The more he needs God, the more deeply he comprehends he is in need of God, and then the more he in his need presses forward to God, the more perfect he is ... To need God is nothing to be ashamed of but is perfection itself. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Perfection quotes by Jane Austen
#13. Anne could do no more; but her heart prophesied some mischance to damp the perfection of her felicity. #Quote by Jane Austen
Perfection quotes by Melody Beattie
#14. Striving for excellence is a positive quality. Striving for perfection is self-defeating. #Quote by Melody Beattie
Perfection quotes by Lionel Suggs
#15. People are always evolving, constantly evolving; but when are you going to reach perfection? When you reach perfection, you can stop evolving, and finally transcend. #Quote by Lionel Suggs
Perfection quotes by Shauna Niequist
#16. That's the lesson in this for people like me who sometimes get wound up about doing things perfectly: 90 percent of the people in your life won't know the difference between, say, fresh and frozen, or handmade and store-bought, and the 10 percent who do notice are just as stressed-out as you are, and your willingness to choose simplicity just might set them free to do the same. #Quote by Shauna Niequist
Perfection quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#17. Sickness occurs when we desire what we need and what's desirable with equal intensity, suffering our lack of perfection as if we were suffering for lack of bread. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Perfection quotes by Farahad Zama
#18. People keep looking for the perfect one, but perfection is an attribute of God alone. #Quote by Farahad Zama
Perfection quotes by Paul Lynch
#19. This place called heaven, this realm of perfection and life everlasting. When it comes down to it, nobody ever wants to go there. Now isn't that strange? I'll tell you what I've seen. I've seen faith fall apart at the moment of death. I've seen people fight it in every way how. I've seen the terror in their eyes. The scratching, the squirming. If god is life ever after then why is it nobody ever wants to go to him and meet him? #Quote by Paul Lynch
Perfection quotes by Dick Vitale
#20. Coaching to me is the ultimate high, especially when you have a game plan and you see that game plan executed to perfection. To see those players take what you put in front of them in preparation and turn it into a masterpiece - it doesn't get any better than that. #Quote by Dick Vitale
Perfection quotes by Frederick Lenz
#21. With the empowerment of an advanced Teacher, and your own best efforts, you will be able to explore the mysteries of knowledge that lead to completion and perfection. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Perfection quotes by Teresa Of Avila
#22. Let us realize, my daughters, that true perfection consists in the love of God and of our neighbour, and the more nearly perfect is our observance of these two commandments, the nearer to perfection we shall be. Our #Quote by Teresa Of Avila
Perfection quotes by Oscar Wilde
#23. As one knows the poet by his fine music, so one can recognize the liar by his rich rhythmic utterance, and in neither case will the casual inspiration of the moment suffice. Here, as elsewhere, practice must precede perfection. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Perfection quotes by Muhammad
#24. Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded; and gain strength by worshipping in the mornings, the nights. #Quote by Muhammad
Perfection quotes by Archana Chaurasia Kapoor
#25. Don't wait for the perfect thought, or the perfect moment; because perfection only occurs after action. #Quote by Archana Chaurasia Kapoor
Perfection quotes by Myles Munroe
#26. I'm washed, I'm forgiven, I'm whole, and I'm healed. I'm cleansed and I'm glory bound. I am only a sojourner on the earth. I am but a pilgrim on this planet, on my way to perfection, and I don't need anybody to tell me who I am, because I know who I am. I am a child of the King, a son (or daughter) of God, born again through Jesus Christ, bought with the price of His blood. I am a new creation, totally new, thoroughly loved and completely accepted as a child of my Father, precious in His sight. #Quote by Myles Munroe
Perfection quotes by Haruki Murakami
#27. I can feel the limits of what humans are capable of
that a certain type of perfection can only be realized through a limitless accumulation of the imperfect ... I find that encouraging. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Perfection quotes by Anonymous
#28. The foremost in religion is the acknowledgement of Him, the perfection of acknowledging Him is to testify Him, the perfection of testifying Him is to believe in His Oneness, the perfection of believing in His Oneness is to regard Him Pure, and the perfection of His purity is to deny Him attributes, because every attribute is a proof that it is different from that to which it is attributed and everything to which something is attributed is different from the attribute. Thus whoever attaches attributes to Allah recognises His like, and who recognises His like regards Him two; and who regards Him two recognises parts for Him; and who recognises parts for Him mistook Him; and who mistook Him pointed at Him; and who pointed at Him admitted limitations for Him; and who admitted limitations for Him numbered Him. #Quote by Anonymous
Perfection quotes by John Perry
#29. Task triage is the habit of making a realistic assessment of what degree of perfection is required for a task at the point of accepting it, so one doesn't need to rely on one's habit of procrastinating to lower the bar. #Quote by John Perry
Perfection quotes by Donald Kennedy
#30. A lot of disappointed people have been left standing on the street corner waiting for the bus marked Perfection. #Quote by Donald Kennedy
Perfection quotes by Maroon 5
#31. The rhythm of her conversation. The perfection of her creation. The sex she slipped into my coffee. The way she felt when she first saw me. Hate to love and love to hate her. Like a broken record player. Back and forth and here and gone and on and on and on and on ... #Quote by Maroon 5
Perfection quotes by Ellen J. Barrier
#32. Perfection is an everlasting goal to pursue. It reminds us that we are mortal beings capable of making mistakes. When we correct them, it gives us an opportunity to become better people. #Quote by Ellen J. Barrier
Perfection quotes by Patricia Highsmith
#33. My story can move fast, as I can't, it can have a reasonable and perhaps perfect solution, as mine can't. A solution that is somehow satisfying, as my personal solution never can be. #Quote by Patricia Highsmith
Perfection quotes by Joseph Addison
#34. With what astonishment and veneration may we look into our own souls, where there are such hidden stores of virtue and knowledge, such inexhaustible sources of perfection. We know not yet what we shall be, nor will it ever enter into the heart to conceive the glory that will be always in reserve for it. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Perfection quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#35. In the Cross is salvation; in the Cross is life; in the Cross is protection against our enemies; in the Cross is infusion of heavenly sweetness; in the Cross is strength of mind; in the Cross is joy of spirit; in the Cross is excellence of virtue; in the Cross is perfection of holiness. There is no salvation of soul, nor hope of eternal life, save in the Cross. #Quote by Thomas A Kempis
Perfection quotes by J.S.B. Morse
#36. You will never find the perfect person but you might be lucky enough to find someone who wants to be. #Quote by J.S.B. Morse
Perfection quotes by Kathy Freston
#37. The goal is progress, not perfection! #Quote by Kathy Freston
Perfection quotes by Camille Pissarro
#38. It is absurd to look for perfection. #Quote by Camille Pissarro
Perfection quotes by Anuj Tiwari
#39. Only LEFT and RIGHT hand can hold each other and walk together ... Only RIGHTs are enough to say bye.
Nobody is perfect in the world, if you Love the perfection of his/her imperfections then LOVE exists. #Quote by Anuj Tiwari
Perfection quotes by Lindsay Lohan
#40. No one is perfect. It's not interesting to be perfect. #Quote by Lindsay Lohan
Perfection quotes by Gene Edward Veith Jr.
#41. Instead of insisting that human beings attain perfection, Lutheran spirituality begins by facing up to imperfection. We cannot perfect our conduct, try as we might. We cannot understand God through our own intellects. We cannot become one with God. Instead of human beings having to do these things, Lutheran spirituality teaches that God does them for us - He becomes one with us in Jesus Christ; He reveals Himself to our feeble understandings by His Word; He forgives our conduct and, in Christ, lives the perfect life for us. #Quote by Gene Edward Veith Jr.
Perfection quotes by Adam J. Kurtz
#42. Nobody gets everything they want. There will always be something. New problems arise. Instead of striving for perfection, strive for contentedness. Find a way to be happy what you already have & you'll always have exactly what you need. #Quote by Adam J. Kurtz
Perfection quotes by Vince Lombardi
#43. Relentlessly pursue perfection knowing we won't catch it, but in the process we'll achieve excellence. #Quote by Vince Lombardi
Perfection quotes by John Adams
#44. The law no passion can disturb. 'Tis void of desire and fear, lust and anger. 'Tis mens sine affectu, written reason, retaining some measure of the divine perfection. It does not enjoin that which pleases a weak, frail man, but, without any regard to persons, commands that which is good and punishes evil in all, whether rich or poor, high or low. #Quote by John Adams
Perfection quotes by Christina Engela
#45. You are strong, tempered like steel in the fire and by the blows of the hammer of life. Nothing will break you again, only make you stronger and more whole. Perfection is the pride of those who have not lived, who know not these things in their arrogance. They remain the same - raw and without form. The hammer never touches them, and they lie on the shelf, gathering dust, slowly tarnishing and fading and crumbling. the blows of the hammer in the fire refine us into bright shining glory for the roles we play in life - until we are one with the anvil, becoming immune to the hammer's little knocks, and smile at it. #Quote by Christina Engela
Perfection quotes by Amy White
#46. This increasingly prevalent tendency for women in particular to think that "perfection" is possible from the perspective of their physique is an indication that many societies are caught up in obtaining some type of perfection for themselves. #Quote by Amy White
Perfection quotes by George Leonard
#47. Even without comparing ourselves to the world's greatest, we set such high standards for ourselves that neither we nor anyone else could ever meet them-and nothing is more destructive to creativity than this. We fail to realize that mastery is not about perfection. It's about a process, a journey. The master is the one who stays on the path day after day, year after year. The master is the one who is willing to try, and fail, and try again, for as long as he or she lives. #Quote by George Leonard
Perfection quotes by Wahab H. Butt
#48. Your first step towards perfection is acknowledging your imperfections. #Quote by Wahab H. Butt
Perfection quotes by Frederick Lenz
#49. All the joys in all the worlds of all beings who have ever been or will ever be, will never equal the perfection of one moment of absorption into the stillness of nirvana. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Perfection quotes by Franz Kafka
#50. Two possibilities: making oneself infinitely small or being so. The second is perfection, that is to say, inactivity, the first is beginning, that is to say, action. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Perfection quotes by Wolfgang Hildesheimer
#51. I had given up magic, because it had reached a state of perfection. I felt that I was able to transform men into animals. I did not make use of this capability, because I believed I could not justify an intervention of this kind in the life of another person. #Quote by Wolfgang Hildesheimer
Perfection quotes by Gregory Palamas
#52. Let none of you have a soul which is barren and without fruit. Let nobody be unloving or unreceptive to the spiritual seed. May each of you eagerly accept the celestial seed, the word of salvation (cf. Lk. 8:11), and by your own efforts bring it to perfection as a heavenly work and fruit pleasing to God. Let no one make a beginning of a good work which brings no fruit to perfection (cf. Lk. 8:14), nor declare his faith in Christ only with His tongue. #Quote by Gregory Palamas
Perfection quotes by Louise Erdrich
#53. In order to purify yourself, you have to understand yourself, Father Trais went on. Everything out in the world is also in you. Good, bad, evil, perfection, death, everything. So we study our souls. #Quote by Louise Erdrich
Perfection quotes by John Green
#54. As we walked, I kept taking glances at her through the crowd, quick snapshots: a photographic series entitled Perfection Stands Still While Mortals Walk Past. #Quote by John Green
Perfection quotes by Various
#55. There was once a bunny who lived by the ocean. Every day he would stroll along the sandy beach and pick up thoughts which had washed ashore. He would find them in shells, under rocks, and sometimes even tangled up in seaweed. "Oh, this is a good one," he would say, "We see chaos, but if we look carefully, if we look beneath the chaos, we find perfection." And into his bucket the thought would go. When the bunny had reached a ripe old age he gathered all the thoughts together and placed them carefully into a large silver cauldron heated by the fires of life. Using a straw broom, he stirred them thoroughly, and as he was stirring he listened carefully. Much to his surprise he heard the ocean singing a wordless song of incomparable beauty. The bunny closed his eyes and said, "Ah, it was all worth it."

--The Blue Monk of Niim #Quote by Various
Perfection quotes by John Wiltshire
#56. What we have here, min skat, exists solely because of the two of us. I told you that we burn; well the radiance of that great conflagration is like a shield banishing darkness. This little bubble of perfection into which we've brought these few select people is the perfect world I tried but failed to create when I was a child. So ask me if I think it was an earthquake, and for once I'll tell you what I really think. I see the manifestation of evil growing across the whole world, Ben. The lights of our civilisation are going out one by one, and we will be extinguished, engulfed by what is coming. Except here, under our shield, in the light of our fire." He turned Ben's hand over and stroked across the creases. "We hold the whole world in the palm of our hands." He folded Ben's fingers into a fist. "And we are mighty. #Quote by John Wiltshire
Perfection quotes by Gary Zukav
#57. You are only as powerful as that for which you stand. Do you stand for more money in the bank and a bigger house? Do you stand for an attractive mate? Do you stand for imposing your way of thinking upon others? These are the stands of the personality seeking to satisfy its wants. Do you stand for perfection, for the beauty and compassion of each soul? Do you stand for forgiveness and humbleness? These are the stands of the personality that has aligned itself with its soul. This is the position of a truly powerful Personality. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Perfection quotes by Isaac Newton
#58. It is the perfection of God's works that they are all done with the greatest simplicity. He is the God of order and not of confusion. And therefore as they would understand the frame of the world must endeavor to reduce their knowledge to all possible simplicity, so must it be in seeking to understand these visions. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Perfection quotes by Dave Grohl
#59. A lot of people from my generation of music are so focused on playing things correctly or to perfection that they're stuck in that safe place. #Quote by Dave Grohl
Perfection quotes by A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
#60. Out of many thousands among men, one may endeavor for perfection, and of those who have achieved perfection, hardly one knows Me in truth. #Quote by A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Perfection quotes by Thomas Keller
#61. When you acknowledge, as you must, that there is no such thing as perfect food, only the idea of it, then the real purpose of striving toward perfection becomes clear: to make people happy, that is what cooking is all about. #Quote by Thomas Keller
Perfection quotes by Fr Frederick William Faber
#62. Her sorrows went up into regions of sublimity, of which we can form only the vaguest conceptions. They went down into profound depths of the soul, which we cannot explore because they have no parallel in ourselves. They were heightened by the unappreciable perfection of her nature, by the exuberant abundance of her grace, by the exceeding beauty of Jesus, and above all by His Divinity. #Quote by Fr Frederick William Faber
Perfection quotes by Natalie Wright
#63. Life is not about perfection. It's about persistence. #Quote by Natalie Wright
Perfection quotes by Ernest Gaines
#64. The artist must be like a heart surgeon. He must approach something with sympathy, but with a sort of coldness and work and work until he finds some kind of perfection in his work. You can't have blood splashing all over the place. Things must be done very cleanly. #Quote by Ernest Gaines
Perfection quotes by Iain Pears
#65. The next day was a dream of such perfection that I have never approached the like again. It was, of course, all illusion, but I like to think of it still in isolation from what came after,as a moment of bliss, one of those days when on is no longer oneself, but becomes bigger, and better, able to overcome the normal preoccupations of life and breathe more freely. #Quote by Iain Pears
Perfection quotes by Rita Levi-Montalcini
#66. It is imperfection - not perfection - that is the end result of the program written into that formidably complex engine that is the human brain, and of the influences exerted upon us by the environment and whoever takes care of us during the long years of our physical, psychological and intellectual development. #Quote by Rita Levi-Montalcini
Perfection quotes by John Piper
#67. So when the fear of not persevering raises its head, don't try to overcome it by saying, "Oh, there is no danger, we don't need to persevere." You do. There will be no salvation in the end for people who do not fight the good fight and finish the race and keep the faith and treasure Christ's appearing. And don't try to overcome the fear of not persevering by trying to win God's favor by your exertions in godliness. God's favor comes by grace alone, on the basis of Christ alone, in union with Christ alone, through faith alone, to the glory of God alone. He is totally, 100% irrevocably for us because of the work of Christ if we are in Christ. And we are in Christ not by exertions but by receiving him as our sacrifice and perfection and Treasure. #Quote by John Piper
Perfection quotes by Chris Erzfeld
#68. One book will often not change your life so dramatically that nothing will ever be the same again. But if you play the margin game to perfection, where you push the envelope ever so slightly, the right books over a lifetime will determine if you will lead an average life in oblivion; or if you will live a truly wonderful life worth reading about. #Quote by Chris Erzfeld
Perfection quotes by Marcus Vitruvius Pollio
#69. Propriety is that perfection of style which comes when a work is authoritatively constructed on approved principles. It arises from prescription, from usage, or from nature. #Quote by Marcus Vitruvius Pollio
Perfection quotes by Madeline  Martin
#70. He poured a splash of liquid into a second cup. "Come in and warm yerself by the fire."
Ariana walked deeper into the room, toward the glow of the hearth. It's heat enveloped her skin and eased away the chill with such expediency, she almost sighed.
Connor appeared beside her with a metal cup extended. "I canna sleep often myself."
She closed her fingers around the cool surface and glanced at the dark liquid within. A sharp scent hit her nostrils.
"Whisky," Connor said.
He was perfection in the firelight. Shadows etched his jaw while the light softened his face, his lips. The powerful lines of his chest were visible at the neck of his leine, as well as a dark peppering of small curling black hairs.
"Whisky," Ariana said with a forced stare at the cup instead of him. "Of course. I drink this all the time."
"Aye, I knew that about ye. When I first saw ye, I thought, 'Now there's a lass who can handle her whisky.'" Connor winked at her with disarming playfulness. "It'll do ye some good. Take off the chill and settle yer thoughts."
"Why do you assume my thoughts are unsettled?" she asked.
He took a swallow from his cup. "Because sleep comes easily to those without weight on their minds."
Ariana took a careful sip from her own cup, the way she'd seen men at the card tables drink. The liquid burned like sin down her throat and caught in her chest.
She gritted her teeth and swallowed hard several times to keep from sputtering.#Quote by Madeline Martin
Perfection quotes by Jose Bergamin
#71. To be thirsty and to drink water is the perfection of sensuality rarely achieved. Sometimes you drink water; other times you are thirsty. #Quote by Jose Bergamin
Perfection quotes by G.R. Matthews
#72. Zhou," Biyu said, when Sabaa paused, "before the Jade Emperor, humans were just like the beasts in the field. We ate, lived and reproduced, but we were going nowhere. The universe is order in all its perfection, stagnant and unchanging. The wars set us free. Free to change, to learn, to adapt, to become more than we were. To do that, we sacrificed order for a measure of chaos, of challenge. It let some people, men and women, do evil, but even that inspired many more to do good. Medicines, writing, music, architecture, all the accomplishments of your Empire came at a high price, but it was worth paying. Tonight we reaffirm that fact. Without the power we grant the Jade Emperor from the realms we represent, we would lose all that we have gained. The universe would reassert its control. Over the years, order would take charge once more and progress would end. Given time, our race would slide back into the beasts we were once. It is something we could not survive. #Quote by G.R. Matthews
Perfection quotes by Suman Pokhrel
#73. May I splinter away from myself
break into whole units
and
live in each with perfection! #Quote by Suman Pokhrel
Perfection quotes by Chirag Tulsiani
#74. Absolute perfection is insidious. #Quote by Chirag Tulsiani
Perfection quotes by Steve Jobs
#75. You'll see more and more perfection of that - computer as servant. But the next thing is going to be computer as a guide or agent. #Quote by Steve Jobs
Perfection quotes by John Ruskin
#76. We are foolish, and without excuse foolish, in speaking of the superiority of one sex to the other, as if they could be compared in similar things! Each has what the other has not; each completes the other; they are in nothing alike and the happiness and perfection of both depend on each asking and receiving from the other what the other only can give. #Quote by John Ruskin
Perfection quotes by William Goldman
#77. It was all part of growing up. You got these little quick passions, you blinked, and they were gone. You forgave faults, found perfection, fell madly; then the next day the sun came up and it was over. Chalk it up to experience, old girl, and get on with the morning. Buttercup stood, made her bed, changed her clothes, combed her hair, smiled, and burst out again in a fit of weeping. Because there was a limit to just how much you could lie to yourself. #Quote by William Goldman
Perfection quotes by Richard L. Evans
#78. Remember to build each other up, to strengthen and sustain, to keep companionship lovely and alive. Remember dignity and respect; understanding; not expecting perfection; a sense of humor and a sense of what is sacred and serious; common purposes, common convictions, and the character to stay with a bargain, to keep a covenant - in these are the making of a good and solid marriage. #Quote by Richard L. Evans
Perfection quotes by Lauren Miller
#79. That's the funny thing about life. We're rarely aware of the bullets we dodge. The just-misses. The almost-never-happeneds. We spend so much time worrying about how the future is going to play out and not nearly enough time admiring the precious perfection of the present. #Quote by Lauren Miller
Perfection quotes by Rene Russo
#80. I am self-conscious, and I'm aware of my body. But I struggle with America's limited idea of what perfection is. #Quote by Rene Russo
Perfection quotes by Karen Chance
#81. I… What are you doing " Mircea had run a hand through his waterfall of hair and now he was sliding those beautifully shaped hands down his chest to glide over his nipples. His torso was hairless and perfectly sculpted with toned muscles and a long waist. He followed the lines of his flat stomach to the low-slung border of his only remaining garment. His fingers lingered there sliding along that insubstantial barrier teasingly drawing my eyes to the line of dark hair that started below his navel and disappeared beneath the black silk. It was startling against the pale perfection of his skin and except for the faint pink of his
nipples gave the only color to his upper body.
"Doing dulceaţă " he asked innocently. "I am trying my best to seduce you. #Quote by Karen Chance
Perfection quotes by Tim Relf
#82. You're after perfection,'Matt said.
'Is that so awful?'
'No, it's not, but if you aim for perfection, you've got to be ready to take the consequences of not getting it and one of those is ending up with no one. #Quote by Tim Relf
Perfection quotes by Tom Ford
#83. Perfection is almost an illness with me, but sometimes I have moments where everything is absolutely clear and you can feel, rather than think. #Quote by Tom Ford
Perfection quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#84. A thing can only live through a pious illusion. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Perfection quotes by Howard W. Hunter
#85. Realizing who we are and what we may become assures us that with God nothing really is impossible. From the time we learn that Jesus wants us for a Sunbeam until we learn more fully the basic principles of the gospel, we are taught to strive for perfection. It is not new to us then to talk of the importance of achievement. The difficulty arises when inflated expectations of the world alter our definition of greatness. #Quote by Howard W. Hunter
Perfection quotes by Benjamin Whichcote
#86. He that would have the perfection of pleasure must be moderate in the use of it. #Quote by Benjamin Whichcote
Perfection quotes by A.S. King
#87. How can we say nobody's perfect if there is no perfect to compare to? Perfection implies that there really is a right and wrong way to be. And what type of perfection is the best type? Moral perfection? Aesthetic? Physiological? Mental? #Quote by A.S. King
Perfection quotes by Steve Copland
#88. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, but love is the perfection of it.

Perfection quotes by Steve Maraboli
#89. Perfectly Imperfect

We have all heard that no two snowflakes are alike. Each snowflake takes the perfect form for the maximum efficiency and effectiveness for its journey. And while the universal force of gravity gives them a shared destination, the expansive space in the air gives each snowflake the opportunity to take their own path. They are on the same journey, but each takes a different path.
Along this gravity-driven journey, some snowflakes collide and damage each other, some collide and join together, some are influenced by wind... there are so many transitions and changes that take place along the journey of the snowflake. But, no matter what the transition, the snowflake always finds itself perfectly shaped for its journey.
I find parallels in nature to be a beautiful reflection of grand orchestration. One of these parallels is of snowflakes and us. We, too, are all headed in the same direction. We are being driven by a universal force to the same destination. We are all individuals taking different journeys and along our journey, we sometimes bump into each other, we cross paths, we become altered... we take different physical forms. But at all times we too are 100% perfectly imperfect. At every given moment we are absolutely perfect for what is required for our journey. I'm not perfect for your journey and you're not perfect for my journey, but I'm perfect for my journey and you're perfect for your journey. We're heading to the same place, we #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Perfection quotes by Jo Walton
#90. Are you a god, then?" Sokrates asked.

"What is a god?" Ikaros threw back instantly. They both sat up and leaned forward eagerly. Sokrates looked like, well, a philosopher. Ikaros was, frankly, gorgeous, more gorgeous than even Jathery pretending to be Hermes, because he was more mature. But there was no question he was a philosopher too, with that avidity in his face, twin to Sokrates's own.

"None of my old definitions will work, unless we allow that you and Porphyry and Athene are some other kind of being, and that there are unchanging unseeking perfect gods that are different," Sokrates said.

"The One," Ikaros said. "And I used the word angels in the New Concordance, for those other kinds of being. But perfection is a dynamic attribute."

"How can it be? The nature of perfection--"

"Perfect things can become more perfect, endlessly.""Excellence, yes, but perfection implies completeness."

Porphyry and I looked past them and smiled at each other. There was something satisfying to the soul in the way they so immediately became utterly absorbed in the argument. Sokrates caught the smile as Ikaros becan to explain the nature of dynamic perfection, which was exactly the kind of abstraction Ikarians and Psycheans love. "Wait," he said. "We're arguing with each other when we have an expert here."

"I'm not an expert," Porphyry said, throwing up his hands.

"But you admit you are a god?"

Perfection quotes by Iain M. Banks
#91. Just as one might do useful work without fully understanding the job one was engaged in, or even what the point of it was, so the behaviour of devotion still mattered to the all-forgiving God, and just as the habitual performance of a task gradually raised one's skills to something close to perfection, bringing a deeper understanding of the work, so the actions of faith would lead to the state of faith.
Finally, she was shown the filthy, stinking, windowless cell carved into the rock beneath the Refuge where she would be chained, starved and beaten if she did not at least try to accept God's love. She trembled as she looked at the shackles and the flails, and agreed she would do her best. #Quote by Iain M. Banks
Perfection quotes by Nikola Tesla
#92. To stop war by the perfection of engines of destruction alone, might consume centuries and centuries. Other means must be employed to hasten the end. #Quote by Nikola Tesla
Perfection quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#93. Perfection is a paradigm meant to keep us striving and learning and growing. Like a wondrous sunset, perfection may be beyond our reach, but it is within our view and well worth seeking after. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Perfection quotes by Jonah Books.com
#94. To define leadership then we must first look to the Godhead, the Triune God. In that way we begin with perfection, while at the same time need to understand that humanity is not of the essence of God. The great news is God is in charge. Nothing frustrates, threatens, or interrupts the plan of God; it begins in eternity and is completed in eternity (1 Peter 1:1, 2; Ephesians 1:3-14). #Quote by Jonah Books.com
Perfection quotes by Hermann Hesse
#95. What you call passion is not a spiritual force, but friction between the soul and the outside world. Where passion dominates, that does not signify the presence of greater desire and ambition, but rather the misdirection of these qualities toward and isolated and false goal, with a consequent tension and sultriness in the atmosphere. Those who direct the maximum force of their desires toward the center, toward true being, toward perfection, seem quieter than the passionate souls because the flame of their fervor cannot always be seen. In argument, for example, they will not shout or wave their arms. But, I assure you, they are nevertheless, burning with subdued fires. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Perfection quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#96. While real perfection is only one, relative perfections must be many. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Perfection quotes by Chen-Ning Yang
#97. Nature seems to take advantage of the simple mathematical representations of the symmetry laws. When one pauses to consider the elegance and the beautiful perfection of the mathematical reasoning involved and contrast it with the complex and far-reaching physical consequences, a deep sense of respect for the power of the symmetry laws never fails to develop. #Quote by Chen-Ning Yang
Perfection quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#98. Our teachers, our friends, our science, our studies, even our eyes can deceive us. But the word of God is entirely true and always true: God's word is firmly fixed in the heavens (v. 89); it doesn't change. There is no limit to its perfection (v. 96); it contains nothing corrupt. All God's righteous rules endure forever (v. 160); they never get old and never wear out. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Perfection quotes by Anyaele Sam Chiyson
#99. There are structure and strategies in leadership but you can add excellence and perfection to it. #Quote by Anyaele Sam Chiyson
Perfection quotes by Joseph Conrad
#100. Marvellous!" he repeated, looking up at me.
"Look! The beauty
but that is nothing
look at the accuracy, the harmony. And so fragile! And so strong! And so exact!
This is Nature
the balance of colossal forces. Every star is so
and every blade of grass stands
so
and the mighty Kosmos il perfect equilibrium produces
this.
This wonder; this masterpiece of Nature
the great artist. #Quote by Joseph Conrad

Perfection quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#102. There is no way to genuinely, powerfully, truly love yourself while crafting a mask of perfection. I know, you know, we all know - it's hard to let your pimples and your flaws be seen. It's hard to stumble and bumble. It's hard to not know the right things to do or say. It's hard to not look like TV.

Sometimes, it's really hard for me to be the awkward mess that I am when I'm authentic, instead of having runway authenticity - all natural, but flawless. But every time I allow that to be okay, not just around myself but around others - I affirm something to myself. I affirm, to myself more than anyone else, that I am lovable and acceptable unconditionally. I affirm that it's okay to take on and take in all the flavours and hues of human experience, and not just the ones that are acceptable in this culture, in this time, in this place.

And that kind of acceptance, that kind of love - that's the kind of love that creates miracles. That's the kind of love I really need. That's the kind of love that makes approval taste like cardboard. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Perfection quotes by Colin Powell
#103. There are no secrets to success: don't waste time looking for them. Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty to those for whom you work, and persistence. #Quote by Colin Powell
Perfection quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#104. Into this error men have, probably, been led by viewing education in a false light; not considering it as the first step to form a being advancing gradually towards perfection; but only as a preparation for life. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Perfection quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#105. How much more reasonable is it to say with the sage Plato, that the perfect happiness of a state consists in the subjects obeying their prince, the prince obeying the laws, and the laws being equitable and always directed to the good of the public? #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Perfection quotes by Richard J. Daley
#106. Look at our Lords disciples. One denied Him; one doubted Him; one betrayed Him. If our Lord couldn't have perfection, how are you going to have it in city government? #Quote by Richard J. Daley
Perfection quotes by Kelly Corrigan
#107. That's how it works: someone important believes in us, loudly and with conviction and against all substantiation, and over time, we begin to believe, too - not in our shot at perfection, mind you, but in the good enough version of us that they have reflected. #Quote by Kelly Corrigan
Perfection quotes by A. Zavarelli
#108. It was Brighton. She made me fucking insane. Her beauty and absolute perfection dissolved any moral boundaries that may have existed within me. #Quote by A. Zavarelli
Perfection quotes by Dejan Stojanovic
#109. In trying to be perfect,
He perfected the art of anonymity,
Became imperceptible
And arrived nowhere from nowhere. #Quote by Dejan Stojanovic
Perfection quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#110. Procrustes, in Greek mythology, was the cruel owner of a small estate in Corydalus in Attica, on the way between Athens and Eleusis, where the mystery rites were performed. Procrustes had a peculiar sense of hospitality: he abducted travelers, provided them with a generous dinner, then invited them to spend the night in a rather special bed. He wanted the bed to fit the traveler to perfection. Those who were too tall had their legs chopped off with a sharp hatchet; those who were too short were stretched (his name was said to be Damastes, or Polyphemon, but he was nicknamed Procrustes, which meant "the stretcher"). #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Perfection quotes by Chris Evert

Perfection quotes by Daniel Bates
#113. High demands and expectations without skill development, encouragement or the feeling of a "win" will lead to resentment. Demanding perfection is exhausting on the part of the person making the demands and on the person of whom the perfection is demanded. #Quote by Daniel Bates
Perfection quotes by Robert G. Ingersoll
#114. The real bible is not the work of inspired men, nor prophets, nor apostles, nor evangelists, nor of Christs. Every man who finds a fact, adds, as it were, a word to this great book. It is not attested by prophecy, by miracles or signs. It makes no appeal to faith, to ignorance, to credulity or fear. It has no punishment for unbelief, and no reward for hypocrisy. It appeals to man in the name of demonstration. It has nothing to conceal. It has no fear of being read, of being contradicted, of being investigated and understood. It does not pretend to be holy, or sacred; it simply claims to be true. It challenges the scrutiny of all, and implores every reader to verify every line for himself. It is incapable of being blasphemed. This book appeals to all the surroundings of man. Each thing that exists testifies of its perfection. The earth, with its forests and plains, its rocks and seas; with its every wave and cloud; with its every leaf and bud and flower, confirms its every word, and the solemn stars, shining in the infinite abysses, are the eternal witnesses of its truth. #Quote by Robert G. Ingersoll
Perfection quotes by Thomas Aquinas
#115. Being taken simply, as including all perfection of being, surpasses life and all that follows it; for thus being itself includes all these. And in this sense Dionysius speaks. But if we consider being itself as participated in this or that thing, which does not possess the whole perfection of being, but has imperfect being, such as the being of any creature; then it is evident that being itself together with an additional perfection is more excellent. Hence in the same passage Dionysius says that things that live are better than things that exist, and intelligent better than living things. Reply Obj. 3: Since the end corresponds to the beginning; this argument proves that the last end is the first beginning of being, in Whom every perfection of being is: Whose likeness, according to their proportion, some desire as to being only, some as to living being, some as to being which is living, intelligent and happy. And this belongs to few. #Quote by Thomas Aquinas
Perfection quotes by Lindsay Pearce
#116. What I've learned is you don't have to strive for perfection, but you do have to strive to be a very hard worker. #Quote by Lindsay Pearce
Perfection quotes by Eknath Easwaran
#117. Violence only makes a situation worse. It cannot help but provoke a violent response. Strictly speaking, satyagraha is not "nonviolence." It is a means, a method. The word we translate as "nonviolence" is a Sanskrit word central in Buddhism as well: ahimsa, the complete absence of violence in word and even thought as well as action. This sounds negative, just as "nonviolence" sounds passive. But like the English word "flawless," ahimsa denotes perfection. Ahimsa is unconditional love; satyagraha is love in action. Gandhi's message #Quote by Eknath Easwaran
Perfection quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#118. That fitful strain of melancholy which will ever be found inseperable from the perfection of the beautiful. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Perfection quotes by Ed Bliss

Perfection quotes by Deepak Chandra
#120. Life is an ongoing learning path where you make mistakes & you learn from it. You get better, you grow emotionally, socially and gets mature gradually. There are significant times where we are good and when we are not so right; but later on what we choose for our-self from that learning defines how better we can become.

And at the end, it is better choice to surprise self. Why ? Because, the real challenge lies in overcoming the shortfalls of own-self and competing with self only.
One has to exceed the expectation from the self. Otherwise, perfection seems to be a myth! Yet, the true beauty is in saying Yes to the process to betterment, not in the final destination 'cuz the perfection can never be static or stagnant.. #Quote by Deepak Chandra
Perfection quotes by Jeannine Allison
#121. We're told perfection doesn't exist, but that couldn't be true. Maybe perfection couldn't last, but it certainly could occur. It had to, because as I stood there staring at this beautifully flawed girl and realized she was mine, no moment had ever felt so perfect. #Quote by Jeannine Allison
Perfection quotes by Lester Levenson
#122. If you see misery, it's your misery. When you see the perfection where the seeming imperfection seems to be, the misery is only an apparency. #Quote by Lester Levenson
Perfection quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#123. Our world is not an optimal place, fine tuned by omnipotent forces of selection. It is a quirky mass of imperfections, working well enough (often admirably); a jury-rigged set of adaptations built of curious parts made available by past histories in different contexts. [ ... ] A world optimally adapted to current environments is a world without history, and a world without history might have been created as we find it. History matters; it confounds perfection and proves that current life transformed its own past. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Perfection quotes by Laozi
#124. Great accomplishment seems imperfect,
Yet it does not outlive its usefulness.
Great fullness seems empty,
Yet it cannot be exhausted. #Quote by Laozi
Perfection quotes by Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa
#125. Natural Magick is taken to be nothing else, but the chief power of all the natural Sciences; which therefore they call the top and perfection of Natural Philosophy, and which is indeed the active part of the same; which by the assistance of natural forces and faculties, through their mutual & opportune application, performs those things that are above Human Reason. #Quote by Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa
Perfection quotes by Kevin Flynn

Perfection quotes by Carl Jung
#127. Psychoanalysis cannot be considered a method of education if by education we mean the topiary art of clipping a tree into a beautiful artificial shape. But those who have a higher conception of education will prize most the method of cultivating a tree so that it fulfils to perfection its own natural conditions of growth. #Quote by Carl Jung
Perfection quotes by Annie Dillard
#128. Theirs is the mystery of continuous creation and all that providence implies: the uncertainty of vision, the horror of the fixed, the dissolution of the present, the intricacy of beauty, the pressure of fecundity, the elusiveness of the free, and the flawed nature of perfection. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Perfection quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#129. Our Soul is a spark of the Divine. It is pure and perfect. Evil deeds merely obstruct our vision of the true nature of our Soul. Through good deeds we can become conscious of this perfection again. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Perfection quotes by John Milton
#130. The end then of learning is to repair the ruins of our first parents by regaining to know God aright, and out of that knowledge to love him, to imitate him, to be like him, as we may the nearest by possessing our souls of true virtue, which being united to the heavenly grace of faith makes up the highest perfection. #Quote by John Milton
Perfection quotes by Richard Carlson
#131. We deny the parts of ourselves that we deem unacceptable rather than accepting the fact that we're all less than perfect. #Quote by Richard Carlson
Perfection quotes by Immanuel Kant
#132. What is more, we cannot do morality a worse service than by seeing to derive it from examples. Every example of it presented to me must first itself be judged by moral principles in order to decide if it is fit to serve as an original example...even the Holy One of the gospel must first be compared with our ideal of moral perfection before we can recognize him to be such. #Quote by Immanuel Kant

Perfection quotes by Clement Of Alexandria
#135. He, in truth, bears witness to himself that he is faithful and loyal towards God; and to the tempter, that he in vain envied him who is faithful through love; and to the Lord, of the inspired persuasion in reference to His doctrine, from which he will not depart through fear of death; further, he confirms also the truth of preaching by his deed, showing that God to whom he hastes is powerful. You will wonder at his love, which he conspicuously shows with thankfulness, in being united to what is allied to him, and besides by his precious blood, shaming the unbelievers. He then avoids denying Christ through fear by reason of the command; nor does he sell his faith in the hope of the gifts prepared, but in love to the Lord he will most gladly depart from this life; perhaps giving thanks both to him who afforded the cause of his departure hence, and to him who laid the plot against him, for receiving an honourable reason which he himself furnished not, for showing what he is, to him by his patience, and to the Lord in love, by which even before his birth he was manifested to the Lord, who knew the martyr's choice. With good courage, then, he goes to the Lord, his friend, for whom he voluntarily gave his body, and, as his judges hoped, his soul, hearing from our Saviour the words of poetry, "Dear brother," by reason of the similarity of his life. We call martyrdom perfection, not because the man comes to the end of his life as others, but because he has exhibited the perfect work #Quote by Clement Of Alexandria
Perfection quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#136. Perfection is the exclusive attribute of God, and it is indescribable, untranslatable. I do believe that it is possible for human beings to become perfect, even as God is perfect. It is necessary for all of us to aspire after that perfection but when that blessed state is attained, it become indescribable, indefinable. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Perfection quotes by Rod Serling
#137. If you want to prove that God is not dead first prove that man is alive. #Quote by Rod Serling
Perfection quotes by Marianne Williamson
#138. Our divine perfection - not registered by the physical eye but only by the heart's knowing - is who we truly are. Our mortal imperfections - registered by the physical senses - are not who we truly are. Yet we keep trying, in love, to find each other's perfection within the world of imperfection. And it simply is not there. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Perfection quotes by Hermann Hesse
#139. The world, Govinda, is not imperfect or slowly evolving along a long path to perfection. No, it is perfect at every moment; every sin already carries grace within it, all small children are potential old men, all sucklings have death within them, all dying people
eternal life. It is not possible for one person to see how far another is on the way; the Buddha exists in the robber and dice player; the robber exists in the Brahmin. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Perfection quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#140. No wonder that tantra is so popular today in the West: it offers the ultimate "spiritual logic of late capitalism" uniting spirituality and earthly pleasures, transcendence and material benefits, divine experience and unlimited shopping. It propagates the permanent transgression of all rules, the violation of all taboos, instant gratification as the path to enlightenment; it overcomes old-fashioned "binary" thought, the dualism of mind and body, in claiming that the body at its most material (the site of sex and lust) is the royal path to spiritual awakening. Bliss comes from "saying yes" to all bodily needs, not from denying them: spiritual perfection comes from the insight that we already are divine and perfect, not that we have to achieve this through effort and discipline. The body is not something to be cultivated or crafted into an expression of spiritual truths, rather it is immediately the "temple for expressing divinity. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Perfection quotes by Henry James

Perfection quotes by Felix Adler
#142. Ethical religion affirms the continuity of progress toward moral perfection. It affirms that the spiritual development of the human race cannot be prematurely cut off, either gradually or suddenly; that every stone of offence against which we stumble is a stepping-stone to some greater good:;; that, at the end of days, if we choose to put it so, or, rather, in some sphere beyond the world of space and time, all the rays of progress will be summed and centred in a transcendent focus. #Quote by Felix Adler
Perfection quotes by Jeanne Marie Bouvier De La Motte Guyon
#143. Prayer is the key of perfection and of sovereign happiness; it is the efficacious means of getting rid of all vices and of acquiring all virtues; for the way to become perfect is to live in the presence of God. #Quote by Jeanne Marie Bouvier De La Motte Guyon

Perfection quotes by Steven Levitsky
#148. Even well-designed constitutions cannot, by themselves, guarantee democracy. For one, constitutions are always incomplete. Like any set of rules, they have countless gaps and ambiguities. No operating manual, no matter how detailed, can anticipate all possible contingencies or prescribe how to behave under all possible circumstances. #Quote by Steven Levitsky

Perfection quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#151. Your good spirit moved over the waters. But he was not upheld by them as though he rested upon them, for when he is said to rest upon a man, it is he who gives that man rest in himself. It was your incorruptible and immutable will, which is sufficient in itself and to itself, that moved over the life which you had created. To that life living and living in happiness are not one and the same, because it lives even in its state of fluidity and darkness. To gain happiness it must still be turned from that state towards God, its Creator. It must live ever closer to the Fountain of life. In his light it must see the light; in him it must be given perfection, splendor, and bliss. #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo

Perfection quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#153. The tribe of clerks was an obvious one ... the junior clerks of flash houses
young gentlemen with tight coats, bright boots, well-oiled hair, and supercilious lips. Setting aside a certain dapperness of carriage, which may be termed [i]deskism[/i] for want of a better word, the manner of these persons seemed to be an exact fac-simile of what had been the perfection of [i]bon ton[/i] about twelve or eighteen months before. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Perfection quotes by Tony Robbins
#154. People always try to be perfect. That's why they don't start anything. Perfection is the lowest standard in the world. Because if you're trying to be perfect, you know you can't be. So what you really have is a standard you can never achieve. You want to be outstanding, not perfect. #Quote by Tony Robbins
Perfection quotes by Laurie David
#155. Everybody has to look at his or her own footprint and do the

something. If we're looking for perfection, we'll never, ever
get there. #Quote by Laurie David

Perfection quotes by Steven Pinker
#157. The more we reflect on this state, the more convinced we shall be that it was the least subject of any to revolutions, the best for man, and that nothing could have drawn him out of it but some fatal accident, which, for the public good, should never have happened. The example of the savages, most of whom have been found in this condition, seems to confirm that mankind was formed ever to remain in it, that this condition is the real youth of the world, and that all ulterior improvements have been so many steps, in appearance towards the perfection of individuals, but in fact towards #Quote by Steven Pinker

Perfection quotes by Sir Fulke Greville
#159. There is an unfortunate disposition in a man to attend much more to the faults of his companions which offend him, than to their perfections which please him. #Quote by Sir Fulke Greville
Perfection quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#160. It may be observed, that provinces amid the vicissitudes to which they are subject, pass from order into confusion, and afterward recur to a state of order again; for the nature of mundane affairs not allowing them to continue in an even course, when they have arrived at their greatest perfection, they soon begin to decline. In the same manner, having been reduced by disorder, and sunk to their utmost state of depression, unable to descend lower, they, of necessity, reascend; and thus from good they gradually decline to evil, and from evil again return to good. The reason is, that valor produces peace; peace, repose; repose, disorder; disorder, ruin; so from disorder order springs; from order virtue, and from this, glory and good fortune. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Perfection quotes by Kenneth Oppel
#161. The baby was warm against my chest. I knew I was broken too. I wasn't like other people. I was scared and weird and anxious and sad lots of the time, and I didn't know why. My parents thought I was abnormal, I was pretty sure. They said I wasn't, but you don't get sent to a therapist if you're normal.
Sometimes we really aren't supposed to be the way we are. It's not good for us. And people don't like it. You've got to change. You've got to try harder and do deep breathing and maybe one day take pills and learn tricks so you can pretend to be more like other people. Normal people. But maybe Vanessa was right, and all those other people were broken too in their own ways. Maybe we all spent too much time pretending we weren't. #Quote by Kenneth Oppel
Perfection quotes by Natalie Brenner
#162. My parents are humans too. This has been one of my greatest awakenings in adulthood: my parents being regular people, too. They have baggage and losses, grown up in imperfect homes with imperfect families just as I did. Life hasn't been easy on either of them between the mixture of poor decisions and bad breaks; this world lacks perfection for us all. #Quote by Natalie Brenner
Perfection quotes by Josh Bezoni
#163. Focus on progress, not perfection. #Quote by Josh Bezoni
Perfection quotes by George Washington
#164. We sainted St. Tammany (King Tamanend III) because he embodied moral perfection and every divine qualification that a deity could possess. I hold him in higher esteem than the saints of the Roman Catholic Church. He'll forever be the patron saint of America. #Quote by George Washington
Perfection quotes by John Dewey
#165. In laying hands upon the sacred ark of absolute permanency, in treating the forms that had been regarded as types of fixity and perfection as originating and passing away, the Origin of Species introduced a mode of thinking that in the end was bound to transform the logic of knowledge, and hence the treatment of morals, politics, and religion. #Quote by John Dewey
Perfection quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#166. It is equally impossible to forget our Friends, and to make them answer to our ideal. When they say farewell, then indeed we beginto keep them company. How often we find ourselves turning our backs on our actual Friends, that we may go and meet their ideal cousins. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Perfection quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#167. It is an absolute perfection ... to get the very most out of one's individuality. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Perfection quotes by Benjamin Constant
#168. There is indeed in the contemplation of beauty of any kind, something which detaches us from ourselves by making us feel that perfection is worth more than we are; and that, through this conviction, by inspiring us with a momentary disinterestedness, awakens in us the power of sacrifice, which is the source of all virtues. There is in emotion, whatever its cause, something which makes our blood flow faster, which communicates to us a kind of wellbeing which doubles the sense of our existence and our powers, and that, by doing so, renders us capable of a greater generosity, courage, or sympathy, than we normally feel. Even a corrupt man is better when he is moved and as long as he is moved. #Quote by Benjamin Constant

Perfection quotes by Kirsten Miller
#171. Don't expect me to be perfect. Despite all my lives, I'm still only human. I can't deliver perfection, and I'll only disappoint you. But I want you to know that you are the most important person to me. I'm trying to protect you.
Sometimes I screw things up. I may even tell a white lie every now and then. But you have to give me the benefit of the doubt. #Quote by Kirsten Miller

Perfection quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#173. I believe that the best leadership is loud authenticity. That is what the world needs now. We don't need more plastic, Photoshopped perfection. I don't want people to look at me and wish they could be me. I want people to be more accepting of their own failures, imperfections, and struggles because they are inspired by how I accept my own. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Perfection quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough

Perfection quotes by Samuel Johnson
#175. Pleasure, in itself harmless, may become mischievous, by endearing to us a state which we know to be transient and probatory, and withdrawing our thoughts from that of which every hour brings us nearer to the beginning, and of which no length of time will bring us to the end. Mortification is not virtuous in itself, nor has any other use, but that it disengages us from the allurements of sense. In the state of future perfection, to which we all aspire, there will be pleasure without danger, and security without restraint. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Perfection quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#177. Consciously or unconsciously, we are all striving for perfection. Every being must attain to it. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Perfection quotes by Iain Murray
#178. He (Knox) handles the doctrines of election and justification as causes for bright joy in believers. 'Your imperfections shall have no power to damn you,' he writes to Mrs. Bowes, 'for Christ's perfection is reputed to be yours by faith, which you have in his blood.' 'God has received already at the hands of His only Son all that is due for our sins, and so cannot his justice require or crave any more of us, other satisfaction or recompense for our sins. #Quote by Iain Murray
Perfection quotes by W.B.Yeats
#179. The intellect of man is forced to choose
Perfection of the life, or of the work
And if it take the second must refuse
A heavenly mansion, raging in the dark. #Quote by W.B.Yeats
Perfection quotes by Philippe Petit
#180. Truly, from a very early age, I started distancing myself from other kids, not out of willingness, but just out of the nature of my energy. I liked to do things solely, and I already had a taste of the quest for perfection, which is unusual in a little kid. #Quote by Philippe Petit
Perfection quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#181. They look upon the present moment as either marred by something that has happened and shouldn't have or as deficient because of something that has not happened but should have. And so they miss the deeper perfection that is inherent in life itself, a perfection that is always already here, that lies beyond what is happening or not happening, beyond form. Accept the present moment and find the perfection that is deeper than any form and untouched by time. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Perfection quotes by Amelie Fisher
#182. Greed is a strange, strange sin.
All you want to do is acquire. Acquire money, acquire material, acquire time, acquire energy, acquire attention. The running mantra is "I want, I want, I want" but that quickly turns to "I need, I need, I need."
Suddenly there just isn't enough time for friends, for family, for anyone. Your goal is to acquire and to make sure what you acquire stays acquired. Your life depends on it. You don't see truth because the truth is shadowed by enormous homes, incredibly fast cars, in lavish spending. Your life no longer belongs to you, but you are blind to it all because those around you are seeking the same.
So you shuffle along at an impossible rate, and you pass the real world around you.
But what you'll come to realize, altogether too late, is that it's never enough.
It's simply never enough #Quote by Amelie Fisher
Perfection quotes by Barbara Kruger
#183. I think that designers have an incredibly broad creative repertoire. They solve. They create images of perfection for any number of clients. I could never do that. I'm my client. That's the difference between an artist and a designer; it's a client relationship. #Quote by Barbara Kruger
Perfection quotes by Pepper Winters
#184. Q looked at me as if I was his perfection.
His queen.
He wanted me.
That was all that mattered. #Quote by Pepper Winters
Perfection quotes by Bryant McGill
#185. Your life is always a perfect reflection of your state of heart and mind, and of your truest identity. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Perfection quotes by Dave Eggers
#186. Kit, you know the key to relating to your parents now? It's mercy. Children, when they become teenagers and then young adults, grow unforgiving. Anything but perfection is pathos. Children are judgmental on an Old Testament level. All errors are unforgivable, as if a contract of perfection has been broken. But what if one's parents are granted the same mercy, the same empathy as other humans? Children need more Jesus in them. #Quote by Dave Eggers
Perfection quotes by Vann Chow
#187. It was lonely to be so perfect in all respects. #Quote by Vann Chow
Perfection quotes by Florence Scovel Shinn
#188. The Light of the Christ within now wipes out all fear, doubt, anger and resentment. God's love pours through me, an irresistible magnetic current. I see only perfection and draw to me my own. #Quote by Florence Scovel Shinn
Perfection quotes by Elizabeth Scott
#189. He is nothing to look at, and yet I can't stop looking at him. There is something beautiful in how his face is made, how all the tiny flaws blend together into something more perfect than perfection could ever be. #Quote by Elizabeth Scott
Perfection quotes by Fyodor Dostoevsky
#190. To achieve perfection, one must first begin by not understanding many things! And if we understand too quickly, we may not understand well. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Perfection quotes by Michele Rigby Assad
#191. God isn't looking for perfection. He is seeking men and women with faith greater than fear. #Quote by Michele Rigby Assad
Perfection quotes by Hector Garcia Puigcerver
#192. Instead of searching for beauty in perfection, we should look for it in things that are flawed, incomplete. #Quote by Hector Garcia Puigcerver
Perfection quotes by Paullina Simons
#193. Tatiana was order. She was finite matter in infinite space. Tatiana was the standard-bearer for the flag of grace and valor that she carried forward with Bounty and perfection in herself, the flag Alexander had followed sixteen hundred kilometers east to the Kama River, to the Ural Mountains, to Lazarevo. #Quote by Paullina Simons
Perfection quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#194. The cat is classic whilst the dog is Gothic - nowhere in the animal world can we discover such really Hellenic perfection of form, with anatomy adapted to function, as in the felidae. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Perfection quotes by Walther Rathenau
#195. A man must be strong enough to mold the peculiarity of his imperfections into the perfection of his peculiarities. #Quote by Walther Rathenau
Perfection quotes by Jarod Kintz
#196. It's like my grandpa always used to say, 'A butter knife would make a deadlier weapon than a melting stick of butter.'"


"Your grandpa never said that."


"No, but he should have. He was a damn fool not to have uttered those words."


"My grandpa was a janitor, in the Great Depression. The greatest thing he ever said was, 'Greg, I just Gregged all over your floor. Do you have a mop I can use to clean it up?'"


"Who's Greg?"


"I don't know."


"What the shit kind of story is that? That story is bullshit. Greg doesn't exist. Nobody knows nobody named Greg. It's a unicorn name - it's complete mythology."


"What about Lou Greg, the baseball player?"


"Lou who? Lou Gehrig?"


"Here's a Lou for you. Greg Louganis."


"Bah, Greg Louganis doesn't exist. He was a myth created by the Soviets to push their divers to perfection. The Russians realized they couldn't be the best until they deceived their divers into believing there was someone who was always better."


"I've seen Greg Louganis, and he's as real as you or me."


"You've seen what they wanted you to see. They gave you a blindfold to wear and convinced you it would improve your eyesight." #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Perfection quotes by Charles Finch
#197. Once in a while dancing is immaculate, a perfection: you understand why raves exist: when you've timed the drinks correctly and they lift your mood and your energy, the songs are ones you all know, and you look around at the girls, their happy lost faces, their beautiful bare stomachs, their jangly long earrings, something limbic, their skin just damp with sweat to the touch, the whole thing ... #Quote by Charles Finch
Perfection quotes by Jean Chretien
#198. I've never believed in seeking perfection at the risk of losing everything. #Quote by Jean Chretien
Perfection quotes by Richard Connell
#199. There is no greater bore than perfection. #Quote by Richard Connell
Perfection quotes by Betsy Rawls
#200. I have always had a drive that pushed me to try for perfection, and golf is a game in which perfection stays just out of reach. #Quote by Betsy Rawls
