“The only problem with her is that she is too perfect. She is bad in a way that entices, and good in a way that comforts. She is mischief but then she is the warmth of home. The dreams of the wild and dangerous but the memories of childhood and gladness. She is perfection. And when given something perfect, it is the nature of man to dedicate his mind to finding something wrong with it and then when he is able to find something wrong with it, he rejoices in his find, and sees only the flaw, becoming blind to everything else! And this is why man is never given anything that is perfect, because when given the imperfect and the ugly, man will dedicate his mind to finding what is good with the imperfect and upon finding one thing good with the extremely flawed, he will only see the one thing good, and no longer see everything that is ugly. And so....man complains to God for having less than what he wants... but this is the only thing that man can handle. Man cannot handle what is perfect. It is the nature of the mortal to rejoice over the one thing that he can proudly say that he found on his own, with no help from another, whether it be a shadow in a perfect diamond, or a faint beautiful reflection in an extremely dull mirror.”
C. JoyBell C.

Mark  Lawrence
“Humanity can be divided into madmen and cowards. My personal tragedy is in being born into a world where sanity is held to be a character flaw.”
Mark Lawrence, Prince of Fools

Haruki Murakami
“I guess I felt attached to my weakness. My pain and suffering too. Summer light, the smell of a breeze, the sound of cicadas - if I like these things, why should I apologize?”
Haruki Murakami, A Wild Sheep Chase

Gosho Aoyama
“Humans are suspicious and jealous creatures. When they see something perfect, they want to find a flaw.”

Kamand Kojouri

William Goldman
“Flaws would not only bring death but, far worse, humiliation.”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride

Michael Bassey Johnson
“It is not until you rhyme with a person that makes you their perfect match, it is when you are satisfied with each others peculiarities, and find jewels in their loopholes.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Michael Bassey Johnson
“A thorough inspection of someone you believed to be loveable will send you back into your shell if all you saw in their life was all bullshit.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Tiffany Madison
“[On Schopenhauer in Black and White] Schopenhauer's views of love are flawed. Love can't be merely an illusion of the mind to aid in procreation, but the path to redemption for an otherwise violently selfish species. Past human greatness has proven that when challenged, love can overpower impulsive instinct, and in essence, the vilest aspects of our nature.”
Tiffany Madison

Paula Poundstone
“There are those wonderful moments of clarity in life when one is reminded how irreparably flawed we humans are. Once, when I was nineteen, on the subway in Boston I lost my balance slightly and bumped into an elderly woman. I quickly apologized and she replied, "Well, hold on to something, stupid." There it is. That's it. That's it in a nutshell. I don't want to sound negative, but I think every fetus should be shown a film of that incident, maybe projected up on the uterine wall, and then asked if it wants to come out. I am a strong believer in a woman's right to choose, but I also think that in the last trimester, the kid should be given every opportunity to back out.”
Paula Poundstone

Kamand Kojouri
“Kiss your scars. Fall in love with them. They ought to serve as life-affirming reminders—a lingering trace of hope. The only reason we have these scars is because we survived and are still here.”
Kamand Kojouri

Steve Maraboli
“In moments of prayer, people tend to pose as a critic and point out percieved flaws in God's art.”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

Nikos Kazantzakis
“Man hurries, God does not. That is why man's works are uncertain and maimed, while God's are flawless and sure. My eyes welling with tears, I vowed never to transgress this eternal law again. Like a tree I would be blasted by wind, struck by sun and rain, and would wait with confidence; the long-desired hour of flowering and fruit would come.”
Nikos Kazantzakis, Report to Greco

Charlotte Brontë
“Now for the hitch in Jane's character,' he said at last, speaking more calmly than from his look I had expected him to speak. 'The reel of silk has run smoothly enough so far; but I always knew there would come a knot and a puzzle: here it is. Now for vexation, and exasperation, and endless trouble!”
Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre


You are not just for the right or left,
but for what is right over the wrong.
You are not just rich or poor,
but always wealthy in the mind and heart.
You are not perfect, but flawed.
You are flawed, but you are just.
You may just be conscious human,
but you are also a magnificent
reflection of God.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Hermann Hesse
“But I need to feel beautiful and holy things around me, always: music, mystery cults, symbols, myths. I need it, and I refuse to give it up... That’s my fatal flaw.”
Hermann Hesse, Demian

Devin Madson
“There is nothing more disgraceful than a vain man."

"Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.”
Devin Madson, The Blood of Whisperers

Rebecca McNutt
“To exist as an interpreter of the law, you first have to follow that law yourself. Law is the glue that holds society together. It's flawed, but absolute, and corruption only hinders its progress.”
Rebecca McNutt

Sarah Ruhl
“Every day as I wave to my children when I drop them off at school, or let one of them have a new experience—like crossing the street without holding my hand—I experience the struggle between love and non-attachment. It is hard to bear—the extreme love of one’s child and the thought that ultimately the child belongs to the world. There is this horrible design flaw—children are supposed to grow up and away from you; and one of you will die first.”
Sarah Ruhl, The Oldest Boy: A Play in Three Ceremonies

“Perfect' - the most misattributed word in English language
A 'perfect' thing can never be improved - at least by what the meaning implies. Why should anyone want to be perfect?
Unfortunately, this happens to be my greatest flaw. Turning a relative idea into an absolute one. Seeking perfection in others - or should I say 'subconsciously seeking perfection in myself' and projecting a benchmark based in fantasy on others.
Makes one come across as judgmental, intolerant, arrogant or impatient - in short, a platinum-class jerk. But you, my friend, are too kind to tell me. Or you'd rather bear for the moment and cuss me roundly when I'm gone. That's unfair to us both.
If I have ever done this to you, I am sincerely sorry.
Accept my profound apologies”
Eniitan Akinola

Jolene Stockman

Virginia Alison
“Perfect yourself because you strive to attain your own perfection....After all, the eye of the beholder may be flawed...”

“We stereotype people so that we won't have to get to know them as individuals. That way we can wash our hands of them whenever we feel like discriminating against a particular group as a whole.
I guess that is one basic flaw in us which we need to change if we are to move ahead, and truly live in peace & harmony as one.”
Anthony T. Hincks

C.A.A. Savastano
“Flaws do not make you evil but human and if you seek the perfect embodiment of virtue, humans will disappoint you.”
Carmine Savastano

“As a scar is the mark of pride to a warrior,

So is sometimes the flaw in a hero’s character!”
Md. Ziaul Haque

“It may be flawed logic, but it's still logic.”

Stewart Stafford
“If you're ever accused of not taking things seriously, take it as a compliment. Humour is a sign of intelligence. Any objections to your facetiousness are likely an admission by the complainant that they are guilty of taking things way too seriously. The flaw lies with them.”
Stewart Stafford

“People who see your flaws often are blind to their own.”
Jeffrey G. Duarte

K. Weikel
“We’re all flawed. We’re all monsters. Our ugly parts are in different places, but they’re all the same.”
