Harvard takes perfectly good plums as students, and turns them into prunes.
Frank Lloyd Wright
In the World Wars, people were perfectly able to shoot other people just because they belonged to the wrong country, without ever asking what their opinions were. Faith too is like that.
I got a flue shot and now my chimney works perfectly.
I've seen my friends take someone back after they've cheated because they fit perfectly.
No one can be perfectly free till all are free; no one can be perfectly moral till all are moral; no one can be perfectly happy till all are happy.
If you don't know how to die, don't worry; Nature will tell you what to do on the spot, fully and adequately. She will do this job perfectly for you; don't bother your head about it.
Michel de Montaigne
Despair is perfectly compatible with a good dinner, I promise you.
William Makepeace Thackeray
The great gift of conversation lies less in displaying it ourselves than in drawing it out of others. He who leaves your company pleased with himself and his own cleverness is perfectly well pleased with you.
Jean de la Bruyere
To do common things perfectly is far better worth our endeavor than to do uncommon things respectably.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
It was in the 1920s, when nobody had time to reflect, that I saw a still-life painting with a flower that was perfectly exquisite, but so small you really could not appreciate it.
My desk faces the water, and I'm perfectly happy sitting there. I'm never lonely.
I don't know anybody's road who's been paved perfectly for them, there are no manuals, you don't know what life has in store for you.

D. H. Lawrence
I think it's perfectly acceptable not to run with cliques.
I hate flatscreens. I don't want to see anything in that much pixilation. I don't need to see the pimple on someone's face. I love the world through glass. The more old, dusty and tainted that glass is, the prettier and more impressionistic that is to me. I don't need to see everything perfectly. I don't like it.
And when I was young, my family was perfectly nice. I write a lot about it, as you noticed. But it was rather limited. I think, I don't think anyone in my family would really feel I'd done them an injustice by saying that. We didn't see many people. There were many books. It was as if I wanted to get away from home.
I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. What I am grateful for is the gift of intelligence, and for life, love, wonder, and laughter. You can't say it wasn't interesting. My lifetime's memories are what I have brought home from the trip.
The web of life is a beautiful and meaningless dance. The web of life is a process with a moving goal. The web of life is a perfectly finished work of art right where I am sitting now.
Robert Anton Wilson

Joseph B. Wirthlin
You don't even have to hate to have a perfectly miserable time.
I believe that young people wearing hoods, unless they are very young, can be frightening. What are they hiding? Why don't they want to come out into the light with the rest of us? They may be perfectly nice, but the hoods send an uncertain statement.
I think it's not inaccurate to say that I had a perfectly happy childhood during which I was very unhappy.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
