Quote of the Week: Perfection


Never forget that if you insist on "perfection or nothing" in the area of love or happiness or any part of human relationships, you will have nothing! - Edith Schaffer

Edith Schaffer was a wise woman.

Another quote on perfectionism from the other end of the theological spectrum:

"Perfectionism is a mean, frozen form of idealism, while messes are the artist's true friend. What people somehow (inadvertently, I'm sure) forgot to mention when we were children was that we need to make messes in order to find out who we are and why we are here. . ."
--Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird
