    perfection Quotes

    In whatever you do, if you leave a sense of incompleteness, then Creation cannot resent you, ghosts and spirits cannot harm you. If you insist on fulfillment in your work and perfection in achievement, you will become either inwardly deranged or outwardly unsettled.
    — Zicheng Hong

Then I can bring out one hundred percent, which makes me satisfied with myself. This is my goal.

    The work never matches the dream of perfection the artist has to start with.
    — William Faulkner
    All of us have failed to match our dream of perfection. I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible. If I could write all my work again, I'm convinced I could do it better. This is the healthiest condition for an artist. That's why he keeps working, trying again: he believes each time that this time he will do it, bring it off. Of course he won't.
    — William Faulkner

    Soul Gathers Force It is possible, when the future is dim, when our depressed faculties can form no bright ideas of the perfection and happiness of a better world,-it is possible still to cling to the conviction of God's merciful purpose towards His creatures, of His parental goodness even in suffering, still to feel that the path of duty, though trodden with a heavy heart, leads to peace.
    — William Ellery Channing
    To do God's will as fast as it is made known to us, to inquire hourly - I had almost said each moment - what He requires of us, and to leave ourselves, our friends, and every interest at His control, with a cheerful trust that the path which He marks out leads to our perfection and to Himself, - this is at once our duty and happiness; and why will we not walk in the plain, simple way?.

I will grow and I am not deficient.
    — Wayne Dyer
