If we "practice to make perfect" but there "isn't such a thing as perfect", why do we practice?
Just a thought of two saying that are similar, yet different. Doesn't really make sense when brought together!
who said there isn't such a thing as perfect? there are perfect things! a perfect test score for example.... No one is perfect, but we can do things perfectly.... that is why practice can make a performance perfect...
I've never heard someone say that there's no such thing as being perfect. I think probably the only time i've heard that is in church, when the Pastor would say that only God is perfect.
We practice to get as close to perfection as we can. When you practice your math, you increase your chances of being better or even perfect at it. Practicing to play a sport, or practicing a song allows you to become perfect at doing it. Its very paradoxical in nature, but things can become perfect with practice.
When comes to love, two perfectly the same can't work out, because opposite attracts eachother. Perfect das't exist, always will be someone bether than you. All you do or made, someone can do that bether. Don't brake your head about it.
I agree with previous answers that there is such a thing as perfect.
However, I believe this must exclude professional service providers.
ie; a person must be degree-qualified (ie, 'perfectly' equipped) in order to describe him/herself as, a Practicing Physician, a Practicing Lawyer, a Practicing Psychiatrist, a Practicing Accountant etc etc..
On the face of it, 'practicing' isn't a particularly reassuring descriptor, as you prepare to go under the surgeon's knife, or seek your accountant's help to avoid being eviscerated by the IRS, or whatever.
Presumably though, it's actually a way of saying that professional people understand that standards and 'practices' continually evolve; so they cannot afford to stop learning...
This was a good question, jlastevens. Words are interesting aren't they?
'practice makes you perfect' is only a saying....it is not meant literally----it rather means that practice makes you better at a certain thing

Why do some people refuse to acknowledge that there is such a thing as pure evil? What makes somepeople asserting that evil is merely a human construct?

Do you believe in evolution or creation and why? This isn't to judge anyone, just my own curiosity.I don't want anyone getting into religious disagreements over this question. I am just curious how other people feel. Personally I believe in evolution.

Is there such as thing as absolute truth? What is it?After all, if a person insists that truth is relative (and we can't determine what beliefs are right and wrong), what reason is there to believe anything that they say?

I'm starting this forum because I had asked this question in the questions section and it got taken off because there was so much discussion going on. I'm sorry - I didn't realise it would raise so much debate. But because it did, I was wondering what people thought of this topic in depth. Please,...

Why don't you care about the IRS scandal?No one seems to write or voice concern over the IRS scandal? This is gustapo thugish behaviour and should scare the hell out of all people in both parties? I admit had Bush done this to liberals I would be laughing, but liberals should know...
