“Perfection must never be the goal because it can never be achieved. One who courts perfection must fail, since we are all only human, but to achieve a nicety without appearing to have even tried is another matter. It leads us to wonder what grand design might have been accomplished had the effort been made. The nature of sprezzatura is deception.”
