IMPERFECTION
[ Also see Perfection ]

What an absurd thing it is to pass over all the valuable parts of a man, and fix our attention on his infirmities!
      - Joseph Addison

Where imperfection ceaseth, heaven begins.
      - Philip James Bailey

Men are more unwilling to have their imperfections known than their crimes.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

It is only imperfection that complains of what is imperfect. The more perfect we are, the more gentle and quiet we become towards the defects of others.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

All things are literally better, lovelier, and more beloved for the imperfections which have been divinely appointed, that the law of human life may be Effort, and the law of human judgment Mercy.
      - John Ruskin

Imperfection is in some sort essential to all that we know of life. It is the sign of life in a mortal body, that is to say, of a state of progress and change. Nothing that lives is, or can be rigidly perfect; part of it is decaying, part nascent. The foxglove blossom--a third part bud, a third part past, a third part in full bloom--is a type of the life of this world.
      - John Ruskin

The finer the nature, the more flaws it will show through the clearness of it; and it is a law of this universe that the best things shall be seldomest seen in their best form.
      - John Ruskin

No reckoning made, but sent to my account
  With all my imperfections on my head.
      - William Shakespeare
