"I learned from my mother early on that details make the difference -- in everything. This wasn’t something she told me or drilled into me, it was something I picked up simply by observing her. My mother is a perfectionist. For me, her example has boiled down to this wisdom: You will spend less time and energy in the long run if you do things thoroughly and with care from the beginning. You’ll also, as it happens, end up with a finished product that is more thoughtful, more aesthetically pleasing, and as close to 'perfect' as the universe allows." -- Kate Berry
"My mom taught me to do things for myself -- never to just throw away and buy new when something breaks, tears, rips, stains, or looks raggedy. She is never wasteful and always resourceful! I always hear her voice in the back of my head when I'm about to throw something out or buy something new, and I still call her with questions all the time. My mom is the best!"
