"I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it."
- Anne Lamott, in Bird by Bird, which is the best book on writing ever written and if you like writing and you haven't read it, go out and get it now. No, seriously. Now.
