I would love to tell you that it's been absolutely perfect, that I've been a man that's been super Christian. But I've had mistakes, dumb things I've regretted, so it's not a perfect life. But it's one that has helped me make better decisions.
To the man with an ear for verbal delicacies - the man who searches painfully for the perfect word, and puts the way of saying a thing above the thing said - there is in writing the constant joy of sudden discovery, of happy accident.
H. L. Mencken
In order to be a perfect member of a flock of sheep, one has to be, foremost, a sheep.
Nobody on this earth is perfect. Everybody has their flaws; everybody has their dark secrets and vices.
Fretting about overpopulation, is a perfect guilt-free- indeed, sanctimonious- way for 'progressives' to be racists.
P. J. O'Rourke
The rule is perfect: in all matters of opinion our adversaries are insane.
May the perfect grace and eternal love of Christ our Lord be our never-failing protection and help.
For me to be here tonight, everything had to be perfect. I had to get drafted by Utah, had to play with a point guard like John Stockton, and had to be coached by Jerry Sloan and Frank Layden.
If you wait for the perfect moment when all is safe and assured, it may never arrive. Mountains will not be climbed, races won, or lasting happiness achieved.
Neither by nature, then, nor contrary to nature do the virtues arise in us; rather we are adapted by nature to receive them, and are made perfect by habit.
My sweet rose, my delicate flower, my lily of lilies, it is perhaps in prison that I am going to test the power of love. I am going to see if I cannot make the bitter warders sweet by the intensity of the love I bear you. I have had moments when I thought it would be wise to separate. Ah! Moments of weakness and madness! Now I see that would have mutilated my life, ruined my art, broken the musical chords which make a perfect soul. Even covered with mud I shall praise you, from the deepest abysses I shall cry to you. In my solitude you will be with me.
God makes everything in perfect time, and he doesn't give you anything you can't handle.
Rafael dos Anjos
