If we are not perfect, why the need for practice?
If we all lie, why don't we get mad at ourselves?
If God has someone for every one, why do people get the wrong one?
If time is precious, how much does it really cost?
If honesty is the best policy, why is there still no maturity?
If jihad is holy, why commit murder?
If we all make mistakes, why the need to condemn?
If i am right in these matters, why can't i get the right answers?

Because we are not perfect we must practice to improve. If we were perfect we would need to practice to maintain perfection.

By the way, perfect does not exist, it will only ever be a theoretical concept.

Oops, wrong blessed button.

We all lie, but for as many different reasons as there are different people.
In first aid, we are constantly told to reassure the casualty. When one looks at an obviously fatal injury, we still say 'Its going to be alright', a blatant lie but no sin.
We promise our children we will always be there to protect them, an impossibility, but no sin.
And so it goes, but the distinction between an acceptale lie and the really naughty can become hazy.

There is someone for everyone, I have no doubt. Do we always wait for the right person or do we rush in?

Time is the most expensive commodity that has no cost.

Honesty is not always the best policy, sometimes it's barely a guideline.

If one thinks it's Jihad, one thinks the killing is holy. Such is the human capability for self delusion.

We don't need to condemn for mistakes, but we do need to self promote and it's easy to put others down to think we're better.

Can't add much to DSW's excellent words


If we were all perfect we might as well be robots - doing the best we can with what we have is all that matters.

We each have to decide for ourselves where we draw the line on what we consider is "acceptable" dishonesty.

Perfection exists.

Beethoven's 9th, Don Larson's perfect game, and Helen Mirren to name a few....

The 9th, an admirable piece, is only as close to perfect as it's last performance.

Who the hell is thislarson bloke?

Helen Mirren is not perfect, bloody close mind, but not perfect. She is however the sexiest lady to ever walk this planet and I doubt will ever be surpassed.

It's baseball, exit any suggestion of perfection.
