In our time, many of us have been taught to strive for an insane perfection that means nothing. To get wholeness, you must try instead to strive for [the kind of perfection] where things that don’t matter are left rough and unimportant, and the things that really matter are given deep attention. This is a perfection that seems imperfect. But it is a far deeper thing.
— Christopher Alexander, “The Perfection of Imperfection”
