This is the very perfection of a man, to find out his own imperfections.

We never taste happiness in perfection, our most fortunate successes are mixed with sadness.
The artist who aims at perfection in everything achieves it in nothing.
When you aim for perfection, you discover it's a moving target.
The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection, that one is sometimes willing to commit sins for the sake of loyalty, that one does not push asceticism to the point where it makes friendly intercourse impossible, and that one is prepared in the end to be defeated and broken up by life, which is the inevitable price of fastening one's love upon other human individuals.
Perfectionism is the enemy of creation, as extreme self-solitude is the enemy of well-being.
Perfection seems sterile; it is final, no mystery in it; it's a product of an assembly line.
