Perfection is wonderful as long as you don’t try to do it perfectly.
Excellence is great as long as you don’t turn it into a religion.

Be careful of perfection and excellence; they will give you spiritual arthritis, block wisdom and true creativity and the precious blooms of joy will fall from your tree of life.


Be wise, don’t build yourself a perfect life; you need cracks in it to see what’s going on in the real world.
