7 of the best quotes from the legendary Manchester United number 7: Eric Cantona
#2 Cantona on perfection
“If someone is too perfect they won't look good. Imperfection is important.”
Most people in this world want everything to be perfect. The perfect house, the perfect job, the perfect partner, the perfect everything. They seek perfection so much that they tend to deny their imperfections in order to create the world of their desire.
However, human beings are born to be imperfect—and Eric Cantona sums up the reason quite beautifully. Imperfection is important since it gives us a thirst to always keep improving. Nobody’s perfect and nobody shall be, either.
