Perfectly Imperfect

“Not being perfect allows us to feel empathy and compassion, not just for ourselves but also, and especially, for others. We see our own frailties and shortcomings in our friends and lovers. Being imperfect joins us in humanity….Better to taste this gritty, imperfect life we have than to defer it to some more perfect future that will never come.”

-Roger Housden
