10 Perfection Quotes

Perfection Quotes
1)
Perfection is attained by slow degrees; it requires the hand of time. -Voltaire

2) The humorous man recognizes that absolute purity, absolute justice, absolute logic and perfection are beyond human achievement and that men have been able to live happily for thousands of years in a state of genial frailty. -Brooks Atkinson

3) The closest to perfection a person ever comes is when he fills out a job application form. -Stanley J. Randall

4) If you expect perfection from people your whole life is a series of disappointments, grumblings and complaints.  If, on the contrary, you pitch your expectations low, taking folks as the inefficient creatures which they are, you are frequently surprised by having them perform better than you had hoped. -Bruce Barton

5) Aim at perfection in everything, though in most things it is unattainable.  However, they who aim at it, and persevere, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despondency make them give it up as unattainable. -Lord Chesterfield

6) A great deal of the joy of life consists in doing perfectly, or at least to the best of one’s ability, everything which one attempts to do.  There is a sense of satisfaction, a pride in surveying such a work, a work which is rounded, full, exact, complete in all its parts—which the superficial man, who leaves his work in a slovenly, slipshod, half-finished condition can never know.  It is this conscientious completeness which turns work into art.  The smallest thing, well done, becomes artistic.  -William Matthews

7) The gem cannot be plished without friction, nor man perfected without trials. -Chinese Proverb

8. The feeling of having done a job well is rewarding; the feeling of having done it perfectly is fatal. -Donley Feddersen

9) This is the very perfection of a man, to find out his own imperfection. -Augustine

10) Once you accept the fact that you’re not perfect, then you develop some confidence.  ~Rosalynn Carter

    Thanks for your tireless dedication to send out these emails. I enjoy getting your “Aspire”s. It is interesting to know there are, and have been, those who are prolific enough to put thoughts to words. Sometimes those “thoughts’ give me a chuckle and help jump start my day. Please keep ’em comin’!

    I like 1,3,4,8,and 9. In my opinion, the others are too long.
