Practice makes perfect

I don't think that practice makes perfect because for one, God didn't make anyone perfect. And, I don't think that misleading quote should be in existence because it puts too much pressure on certain people to be perfect. The saying should be... "practice makes better". So, that even though, they might not become perfect, they will still be better than what they were.

Yup that's true and the quotation was just meant for saying anyways. No one can be perfect. And the people whom we think are perfect think to get better only. No one is ever satisfied with what we have. If we were happy then the world would not have come to such an advanced stage. That's why they say that change is the essence of life. Cheers!

Well, you're right. God didn't created us perfect that's why practice makes us perfect. There are a lot of examples where this saying applies. I know digital artists you may not know who can model a 3d character that looks like a real human, and that's perfect for me.

Whether practise makes perfect or better it doesn't matter.What matters is that there is improvement in the results.I think being better is good.The reason being we are improving each time.

In my humble opinion, i think you are right. Practice does not always makes perfect especially if what you are practicing is not really meant for you. Like for instance, why do you keep on practicing singing if singing is not really meant for you and when you are meant to be a talker. I believe it is no use pushing things that interest you when it is not really meant for you.

No one is perfect. We will practice to only keep learning and growing new things. The saying "Practice makes perfect" is only really suggesting that if you practice well enough that the appearance to most people will be like a "perfect talent" to them. However, it does not mean the person himself is perfect in any way. I do agree that people do this to a high extreme, and it can become an issue with all that pressure. If only we could teach our children that practicing helps you to grow than to say it makes you this "perfect image". America tends to display that upon women, if you think about it. With all those photoshoped magazines and anorexic women, no wonder why we have problems in the United States.
