To be perfect is to be delusional

I have some quotes that deal with perfectionism and how believing in perfectionism will stunt your personal growth. On the other hand, everything in the universe was created by a Creator (or God), and this God (Creator) is perfect. Thus, if God created you, and he is perfect, than you are perfect. In addition, since the Creator created everything--from the trees to the mountains and sky's--than everything is perfect. Thus, everything in the universe is perfect, and everything in the universe is connected to everything else. Here are the quotes on perfectionism.

"We have the need to be accepted and to be loved by others, but we cannot accept and love ourselves. The more self-love we have, the less we will experience self-abuse. Self-abuse comes from self-rejection, and self-rejection comes from having an image of what it means to be perfect and never measuring up to that ideal. Our image of perfection is the reason we reject ourselves the way we are, and why we don't accept others the way they are."
-- Don Miguel Ruiz

"The maxim 'Nothing but perfection' may be spelled 'Paralysis.'"
-- Winston Churchill

"After enough mirror gazing, we all develop our 'cosmic sense of humor.' We no longer try to be perfect, or try to get all our work done in time. We become content with whatever life brings. Just to deal with what comes up without crucifying ourselves or others is enough of a challenge."
-- Paul Ferrini

"Good enough never is."
-- Debbi Fields
