Wabi Sabi

A beautiful thing is never perfect.

Egyptian Proverb  (via asleepylioness)

In a similar vein:

Wabi-sabi (侘寂?) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wabi-sabi

This is fast becoming my aesthetic. Loving the imperfections that come with life.
