Perfectionism goads an old nag to a early grave.

The belief that I must be perfect is the lie that keeps me from being good.

To overlook a defect one must be nearly perfect.

Cover all imperfection with love.

To avoid failing an imperfect world, practice forgiving yourself.

Perfectionists like microscopes; imperfectionists prefer blindness.

Fools build one perfect house for themselves; the wise build many imperfect ones for others.

What isn’t grilled to perfection, may yet be seasoned with graciousness.

Neglect shows no respect.

Failure is attended, like the rain attends the wet side of the mountains, by sadness.

A scratch on what’s new is damage; on what is old, it’s character.

The only perfect response is a gentle acceptance of imperfection.
