Marc Jacobs

As a real person, he wouldn’t last a minute, would he? But drama is about imperfection. And we’ve moved away from the aspirational hero. We got tired of it, it was dull.

Imperfection is perfection.

Flume

Robert Lefkowitz

Persuade thyself that imperfection and inconvenience are the natural lot of mortals, and there will be no room for discontent, neither for despair.

Annie Besant

The fastest way to break the cycle of perfectionism and become a fearless mother is to give up the idea of doing it perfectly – indeed to embrace uncertainty and imperfection.

I feel like the live record thing is something that I’ve been getting used to as the years go by and with this being my second one, I’m continuing to learn what works and what doesn’t work.

Matt Groening

Klutziness is endearing. I like imperfection.
