It doesn’t know how to say, “Good try,” or “Job well done.” The critic does not believe in creative glee–or any glee at all, for that matter. No, perfectionism is a serious matter.” ~ Julia Cameron

    Botched, it smears the hands, crumbles to dust.

    has a shape that satisfies, clean and evident.” ~ Marge Piercy
  53. “It is the privilege of any human work which is well done to invest the doer with a certain haughtiness. He can well afford not to conciliate, whose faithful work will answer for him.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

He can make bread from stone. Hold on to Him, and He’ll hold on to you. Take one day at a time, pray for faith and be kind, and when forgetful becomes your mind, remember what He said, ‘You are mine.'” ~ Nick Vujicic
