The thing that you think is imperfect about you is the thing that makes you who you are. It separates you from everybody else. I have a scar on my lip, and for years I hated it.

I’m an imperfect person. I’ve let anger, jealousy, all the emotions, get the best of me.

Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
