Day 2606: Imperfect

Nine hundred and twenty-four imperfect days ago (but what imperfect person is counting?)*, I imperfectly published an imperfect blog post titled Day 1682: Imperfections.

It’s time for another imperfect blog post, inspired by this imperfect photo from yesterday:


I’m wondering if anybody is going to ask me for more information about that Imperfect van. My imperfect response is this: “I know as much as you know.”

It may be imperfect not to know, but I’m glad we can all be imperfect together.

Here are some imperfect quotes:

“Have no fear of perfection.  You’ll never reach it.” — Salvador Dali

“To banish imperfection is to destroy expression, to check exertion, to paralyze vitality.” — John Ruskin

“One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect. Perfection simply doesn’t exist …Without imperfection neither you nor I would exist.” — Stephen Hawking

“Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we are all in this together.” — Brené Brown

“If we keep being fair despite the injustices against us, in the end life will reward us, I believe. The world isn’t fair, because it’s imperfect. Right and wrong coexist.  But we should stick to morality to make the world become better.” — Maria Karvouni

“Practice doesn’t make perfect.  Practice reduces the imperfection.” — Toba Beta

“Practice does not make perfect.  Imperfect makes us practice.” — Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“The more I feel imperfect, the more I feel alive.” — Jhumpa Lahiri

“Laughing at one’s imperfections is the best way to cure them …Let us live foolishly, mistakenly, imperfectly, and be content. ” — Marty Rubin

“I believe that the measure of my soul is my ability to love imperfect people.” — Joseph Grenny

“Delight in the pursuit, surrender to imperfection, and marvel at the wonder — as you observe what is.” — Julianne O’Connor

Here are the other imperfect images I imperfectly captured yesterday:












To me, the world seems considerably more imperfect because of the passing of  jazz keyboardist Lyle MaysHere‘s a wordless tribute Jacob Collier posted on YouTube two days after Lyle’s death:

If you leave an imperfect comment below, I will respond with an imperfect reply.

Imperfect thanks to all who help me create these imperfect posts, every day.


* After I published this post, I noticed that I had imperfectly calculated today’s numbers. I corrected those imperfections; the ones that remain are just less obvious.

  1. I see it as: I’m perfect

  2. your little tips are not perfect but they are perfect in the direction they point us, and that makes it perfect enough, but i don’t want to sound as if your post is perfect, but it will certainly be perfect for me today, as i know that at some later date i will read another imperfect post and think, was it any more perfect than the last and will spend time trying to figure out if it’s perfect, which will be a perfect waste of time, which in itself, makes your post perfect today, hope you have an inspired day, amen

    • Your comment is perfection so accept my imperfect thanks, please!

      • that sounds perfect to me, but then again , do we ever need perfection, most likely, a good trier is perfect most of the time, not perfect though, hope you have a great day, amen

  3. I guess I should be perfectly happy with imperfection is what I’m feeling right now, Ann.

  4. Imperfect fruit and veg tastes absolutely perfect!

  5. Carla Coco

    We, as humans are fallible, ergo the world is imperfect. We can have images of the Ideal world and try to emulate the best we can, but as a philosophical rule, the world is imperfect as such. According to Neoplatonits, the Perfect world exists in an other dimension. Have a nice day, Ann

  6. Perfection leaves no room for improvement, or even change, so I’m happy with imperfection.

  7. People are imperfect just like me

  9. We subscribe to a weekly produce box delivered in a van similar to the one in your photo. The service is called “Imperfect Produce,” and it’s organic fruit and vegetables that are fresh, but less than perfect in appearance. The purpose is to cut down on waste. I think it’s good we not waste any energy even thinking we need to be perfect. 🙂
