Perfectionism - David Foster Wallace

This quote was added by poipoi
You know the whole thing about perfectionism. The perfectionism is very dangerous because of course if your fidelity to perfectionism is too high, you never do anything because doing anything results in-it's actually kind of tragic because you sacrifice how gorgeous and perfect it is in your head for what it really is. And there were a couple of years where I really struggled with that.
