Beyond Blue

Taro Gold compiled some great quotes on perfectionism in “Living Wabi Sabi.” Among them:

This is the very perfection of a man, to find out his own imperfection. -Saint Augustine

Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in. -Leonard Cohen

Only the idea of something is perfect. It’s expression in material, worldly terms is a mere shadow of that idea. -Plato

Great thoughts, discoveries, and inventions have generally been nurtured in hardship, often pondered over in sorrow and established with difficulty. -Paxton Hood

The art of living lies less in eliminating our troubles than in growing with them. -Bernard Baruch

Mistakes are the portals of discovery. -James Joyce
