I was looking at this flower and thinking its so beautiful to the extent that I felt it has a personality! Is it perfect? But nothing and no one is perfect, I believe we seek perfection; but when we do; we realize that we can do better, bigger, faster... but through pushing our standards one more level further. And we do it again and again, until we ultimately understand that perfection is something relative and impossible in the same way. I loved the flower in this picture, but I found a small cut on the upper left corner! which made me sad as I thought I had the perfect picture. But then again I thought its beautiful as is, and cannot be more beautiful than now.
So I remembered one of my favorite quotes of all time by Achilles: "The gods envy us. They envy us because we’re mortal. Because any moment might be our last. Everything’s more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again."
