It's Not Often That The Eraser Outlasts The Lead

I sort of kept breaking the lead in one of Jake's pencils as I was sharpening it this morning. It ended up too short for writing but I kept it inside his case for the eraser. And... because I found it amusingly short, I took a photo of it.

This photo reminded me of a quote that says "No one is perfect... that's why pencils have erasers." ~Author Unknown.

So I looked up quotes about perfection and found the following favorites, quite thought provoking...

When nobody around you seems to measure up, it's time to check your yardstick. ~Bill Lemley

Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence. ~Vince Lombardi

Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it. ~Salvador Dali

Even the best needles are not sharp at both ends. ~Chinese Proverb

They say that nobody is perfect. Then they tell you practice makes perfect. I wish they'd make up their minds. ~Wilt Chamberlain

There are no perfect men in this world, only perfect intentions. ~Pen Densham, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

BUT here is the flip side...

To err is human, but when the eraser wears out ahead of the pencil, you're overdoing it ~ Josh Jenkins quotes



  1. I'm not perfect but I'm glad that God is and He knows what is best for us.
