Dali: don’t fear perfection


“Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.”

“완벽을 두려워하지 마라 – 완벽까지 할 수 없으니까.”

― Salvador Dali | 살바도르 달리

If you wait around for the day that what you do is perfect, you’ll wait forever. Do your best and keep doing better than your best – your pronunciation may be sloppy but your grammar impeccable, your grammar a bit twisted but your pronunciation near-native… Stop worrying. Just go for it. Don’t wait to speak Korean until you can speak perfectly, or you’ll never open your mouth.
