  1. Lydia Child:

    That man's best works should be such bungling imitations of Nature's infinite perfection, matters not much; but that he should make himself an imitation, this is the fact which Nature moans over, and deprecates beseechingly. Be spontaneous, be truthful, be free, and thus be individuals! is the song she sings through warbling birds, and whispering pines, and roaring waves, and screeching winds.

  2. Tom Sullivan:

    The balance here is speed vs. perfection, you don't have the time to wait for perfection to keep your doors open, the lights on and your employees paid.

  3. Salvador Dali:

  4. Dejan Stojanovic:

    Perfection seems sterile; it is final, no mystery in it; it's a product of an assembly line.

  5. E.C. Stedman:

    Poetry is an art, and chief of the fine arts; the easiest to dabble in, the hardest to reach true perfection.
