Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Real estate sales was perfect training for the experience to go into public life because you learn to accept rejection, learn to meet new people, learn to work with people and find common ground. That’s the way you sell houses… that’s also the way you win over constituency.

Jeanne Marie Bouvier de la Motte Guyon

Tabitha Suzuma
So often we wait for the climate and conditions in life to be perfect before we feel safe enough to step forward, trust, and be our authentic selves. What we don’t realize is that in order to create the ideal climate we are waiting for, we must be authentic first.
Sonia Choquette
A curve ball is not something you can pick up overnight. It took me years to perfect mine.
Bob Gibson
That’s our job as artists is to be honest about what we’re feeling. And what we’re feeling is not always going to be perfect. Sometimes it’s going to be controversial. Sometimes it’s going to piss a couple of people off. Sometimes it’s going to motivate people. Sometimes it’s going to inspire.
Pharrell Williams
For, as I said a little way back, perfect souls are in no way repelled by trials, but rather desire them and pray for them and love them. They are like soldiers: the more wars there are, the better they are pleased, because they hope to emerge from them with the greater riches.

Blake Lively

Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Even under the most perfect Social Democracy we should, without Communism, still be living like hogs, except that each hog would get his fair share of grub…. Whilst we are hogs, let us at least be well-fed, healthy, reciprocally useful hogs, instead of–well, instead of the sort we are at present.

Karen Marie Moning
People are good or half good or a quarter good, and it changes all the time- but even on the best day nobody’s perfect.
Colum McCann
I think a good poem should have some inscrutable part. You can’t quite explain it. The poem can only explain itselfВ to a certain limit and at that point you enter into a little bit of mystery. That for me is the perfect poem: to begin inВ clarity and to end in mystery.
Billy Collins
The idea is that the savior came, and simply by the coming of the savior you’re saved. Nonsense, human beings wish! If that were the case, we’d live in a perfect world.
Frederick Lenz
A more secret, sweet, and overpowering beauty appears to man when his heart and mind open to the sentiment of virtue. Then he is instructed in what is set above him. He learns that his being is without bound; that to the good, to the perfect, he is born, low as he now lies in evil and weakness.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Real life isn’t always going to be perfect or go our way, but the recurring acknowledgement of what is working in our lives can help us not only to survive but surmount our difficulties.

Brie Larson
The thing about Tolkien, about The Lord of the Rings, is that it’s perfect. It’s this whole world, this whole process of immersion, this journey. It’s not, I’m pretty sure, actually true, but that makes it more amazing, that someone could make it all up. Reading it changes everything.
Jo Walton
I don’t think people should confuse fantasy and reality because no one is perfect – we all know that.

Marco Rubio
The Lord may want to colonise other Worlds with His new perfect children! What’s the whole Universe for and all this huge amount of space if He’s only interested in colonising one little Planet?

David Berg
God is dead but my hair is perfect.
Bernard-Henri Levy
I believe in love and lust and sex and romance. I don’t want everything to add up to some perfect equation. I want mess and chaos. I want someone to go crazy out of his mind for me. I want to feel passion and heat and sweat and madness. I want valenties and cupids and all of that crap. I want it all.
Barbra Streisand
In this perfect world, there are certain imperfections that catch your eye. That’s what works for me. I don’t concentrate on being perfect, but instead put that effort behind my craft and being true to myself. I don’t conform to pressures outside of me. I am confident about myself.

I shall spend every moment loving. One who loves does not notice her trials; or perhaps more accurately, she is able to love them. I shall do everything for Heaven, my true home.

Thornton Wilder
Larry had brought me blue jeans, a red polo shirt, jogging socks, my white Nikes, an extra cross from my suitcase, the silver knives, the Firestar complete with inner pants holster, and the Browning and its shoulder holster. He’d forgotten a bra, but hey, except for that it was perfect.

To be appointed as captain of the team of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, which includes some of the finest and most attractive cricketers of this generation, is the perfect icing on the cake.
Sarfaraz Ahmed
Wanting to know all kinds of things is perfect for novelists, because novelists are generalists. We’re not specialists in anything, except, hopefully, writing.
Lynne Tillman
[Simone Weil’s] life is almost a perfect blend of the Comic and the Terrible, which two things may be opposite sides of the same coin. In my own experience, everything funny I have written is more terrible than it is funny, or only funny because it is terrible, or only terrible because it is funny.
Flannery O’Connor
Oh, and once, when I was in the Marines, I got a perfect score on my physical fitness test.
Drew Carey
It is our duty to try to be perfect, … to improve each day, and look upon our course last week and do things better this week; do things better today than we did them yesterday
Lorenzo Snow
The picture that looks as if it were done without an effort may have been a perfect battlefield in its making.
Robert Henri
Headhunters is a popcorn flick – you can laugh and shout and do whatever you want having great fun. But at the bottom of it all there’s this theme of being honest to the people you love. I want to be that. And if Headhunters is one of the movies that help me realise that, then that’s perfect.
Aksel Hennie
Nothing precludes sympathy so much as a perfect indifference to it
William Hazlitt
Sport is the bloom and glow of a perfect health. The great will not condescend to take anything seriously; all must be as gay as the song of a canary, though it were the building of cities, or the eradication of old and foolish churches and nations, which have cumbered the earth long thousands of years.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
How often have I not heard a perfectly intelligent female says, in the tone of one clinching an argument, ‘Edgar says — ‘ And all the time you are perfectly aware that Edgar is a perfect fool.
Agatha Christie
I have learned that you’re not perfect, and that sometimes the one you love can burn you. But it’s just the fool that’s looking backwards: a bitter heart turns the love we made to ashes.
Ben Rector
I’m not perfect, but I believe my faith in Jesus Christ will really take me far in the world!
Christina Grimmie
To sum up: it’s time to rewrite the maxim that practice makes perfect. The truth is, practice makes myelin, and myelin makes perfect.
Daniel Coyle
I like food because you can change it. I mean, there is no such thing as a perfect lamb chop; you can make all types of lamb chops. And that’s true of everything. And people eat it and it changes and disappears.
Claes Oldenburg
Literature wasn’t intended to be about perfect people, it was about flaws, very real and very deep human flaws.
Erin McCarthy
May the perfect grace and eternal love of Christ our Lord be our never-failing protection and help.
Ignatius of Loyola
I’d never read a piece of television where it’s an hour script and it’s perfect.
James Purefoy
No matter how perfect is physical beauty of a girl, if she could trample and not to appreciate the love, she doesn’t worth of being loved.
Hassan El Fakiri
Team, it turned out that Michael Dell wasn’t perfect at predicting the future. Based on today’s stock market close, Apple is worth more than Dell. Stocks go up and down and things may be different tomorrow but I thought it was worth a moment of reflection today.
Steve Jobs
In horror films, they sometimes don’t show the monster because our imaginations and our own pain is so much greater. Social media is like that. I think it’s so great. It doesn’t have to show a monster – when you see someone leaving a mean comment, or living a so-called perfect life, you just put all of your pain into that.
Alice Eve
No man is so perfect, so necessary to his friends as to give them no cause to miss him less.
Jean de la Bruyere
You can’t be perfect. You can’t be the perfect father. You can’t be the perfect singer.
Eddie Vedder
When the world pushes you to your knees, you’re in the perfect position to pray.
A God must have a God for company.
And lo! thou hast the Son-God to thy friend.
Thou honour’st his obedience, he thy law.
Into thy secret life-will he doth see;
Thou fold’st him round in live love perfectly-
One two, without beginning, without end;
In love, life, strength, and truth, perfect without a flaw.
George MacDonald
I realized that I have very long arms so I can take the perfect arm-length picture with fans
Taylor Swift
It takes me a lot of time, and it’s almost frustrating for the guys sometimes because they’re waiting for a new song. And I – it’s just so important for me to get the perfect, exact, right song.
Cecile McLorin Salvant
