What is this quote saying?
Basically it is saying that you shouldn't expect things that are are unrealistic. You might have this image of what someone should be but usually this is not going to be the case and if you continue with that thinking, you are going to be seriously disappointed.
We all have flaws and it is these flaws that make it who we are. We all have out little habits, our little sayings, our little idiosyncrasies.
Imagine if everyone in this world was the same. Governments might love it because it would be easy to control us but it would be quite boring, right?
Rather than focus on other people's imperfections why don't you think about your's?
Bit squidgy around the middle? Go to the gym.
Can't keep up with the conversation at a cocktail party? Read more
Short on money? Turn off the television and create something.
Not getting ahead at work? Stop blaming your boss and think about what you can do to improve your situation.
What about this good-looking guy? (You can stop laughing thank you.)
He might need to lose a little bit around his middle and trim his beard and bit more often and not smile so cheesily (is that a word?)
He can work on these things, because at the end of the day, we are all a work in progress. Some of us are just a little bit more along in the process than others.
