David Foster Wallace on perfectionism

by April on April 21, 2013

“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. …It’s actually kind of tragic because it means you sacrifice how gorgeous and perfect it is in your head for what it really is.”

–David Foster Wallace, critic and author of Infinite Jest
