And with each trial comes a slip,
There are three things you can do:
Try once and watch others try,
Give up and jump into the Nile
Or smile and never say die.
In a quest to reach perfection
Nobody is nearer to the goal than you.
Perfection is not in the body, but mind and heart
Not in the talk or style, but rather, in life’s art.
That which is too close to touch
And yet very hard to reach,
That it is, which we need to attain
And to forever retain
Of perfection I speak
