"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
