Happiness & Perfection: Elusive

"Happiness is a quality which ever retreats before them without getting out of sight"
Alexis de Tocqueville

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in.
~Leonard Cohen

Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.
~Confucius, Analects

The most difficult part of attaining perfection is finding something to do for an encore.
