As young women, we all feel a pressure to look a certain way, and sometimes it is just too much to handle. But, there are good and bad ways to deal with this pressure. A terrible way to handle this pressure is to complain about all of our flaws and expect other girls to join in. -Katherine Schwarzenegger

Politically, of course, the U.S., despite the flaws in its systems, is still a democracy – we like to associate with democracies. And strategically, the U.S. is a counter-balance to China, a rising China that is not yet a democracy. -Tsai Ing-wen

There's always a side of me that goes, 'I'm just a nerd.' I never look at myself and say, 'I'm beautiful.' Like anyone else, I see the flaws. Guys don't do that as much as women. But you have to learn to appreciate and accept and love yourself as you are. -Heather Graham

I've spent my whole life in real estate, whether it's in our hotels or looking at the competition, and it's my curse to walk into every room and not be drawn to the flaws and have the little imperfections drive me crazy – because they didn't need to happen. -Donald Trump, Jr.

I feel to look for perfection is a very dangerous path. More than that, it's dangerous because it doesn't exist. You can aim for it, but you already know you won't get there because it doesn't exist. Plus, I definitely think the flaws, little cracks, and accidents are a lot more interesting. -Vincent Cassel

For better or worse, I am as fascinated with human flaws as anything. -Greg Mottola

The thing is that love gives us a ringside seat on somebody else's flaws, so of course you're gonna spot some things that kinda need to be mentioned. But often the romantic view is to say, 'If you loved me, you wouldn't criticise me.' Actually, true love is often about trying to teach someone how to be the best version of themselves. -Alain de Botton

Laughter is an important part of a good relationship. It's an immense achievement when you can move from your thinking that your partner is merely an idiot to thinking that they are that wonderfully complex thing called a loveable idiot. And often that means having a little bit of a sense of humour about their flaws. -Alain de Botton

I am a human being, with feelings and emotions and scars and flaws, just like anyone else. -Josh Gordon

Prejudice is sinful. All blood flows red. And the most harmful and foolish kind of prejudice is prejudice against yourself. Every woman is your sister, and every woman needs her sisters. So try to give other women the courtesy of your compassion, respect, and forgiveness. Love yourself despite – and because of – your flaws. -Jewell Parker Rhodes

The thing I hate the most in any kind of writing is self-righteousness. Where you pretend you don't have the same kinds of flaws your subject has. -David Shields

Whatever its flaws, the United Nations is still the only institution that brings together all the countries of the world. And it is the best forum for the United States to spur countries to act – and to hold them accountable when they don't. -Samantha Power

'Duty' is a refreshingly honest memoir and a moving one. Mr. Gates scrupulously identifies his flaws and mistakes: He waited too long, for example, for the military bureaucracy to fix critical supply issues like the drones needed in Iraq and took three years to replace a dysfunctional command structure in Afghanistan. -Jack Keane

I see flaws as a kind of beauty. -Karan Mahajan

The scariest thing about receiving praise at a young age is the fear of burning out or losing it, or proving people right that you were just a novelty.

Any kind of run-of-the-mill flaws that are easily solved, to me, are boring. Situational flaws, for example. I like flaws that are rooted in a deep distrust in people because of a lack of love. -Will Arnett

No human being should be a role model. We all have flaws. -Jim Brown

I allow myself to fail. I allow myself to break. I'm not afraid of my flaws. -Lady Gaga

When I work with other people, I try to make up for their shortcomings with my strengths, and I let others make up for my flaws with their strengths. I try to co-operate with people around me when working in a group. I like to enhance team spirit on set. I try to get everyone involved in the action. -Song Joong-ki

People like to see a guy being built up; they like to see a guy go from the bottom to the top, but then once you're on the top for a little bit, people wait to see you fail, and they want you to fail, so they find flaws and they find reasons, whether it's being too nice or trying to make you out to be fake – that's what they do. -J. J. Watt

Sometimes when you are winning, you don't see your flaws; you don't see what you are not good at. -Robbie Lawler

Sprawling, earnest, and ambitious – its modest title is 'The Future' – Al Gore's new book embodies both the virtues and the flaws of its author. But those hardy souls who slog past the weaknesses will be rewarded by a book that is brave, original and often fun. -Chrystia Freeland

I put my flaws on front street. So the world accepted my flaws, so I don't have any flaws. -Kevin Gates

I've got my bag of goodies; I've got flaws coming out of every pore, but that's part of who I am. A bit of the process of life is learning to live with those things and accept yourself regardless. Maybe try to become a better person, either because of – or in spite of – those things. -John Hensley

When it comes to your hero, what the readers really fall in love with are his flaws. No one ever falls in love with a perfect hero. -Sylvia Day

The challenge in writing a show that's about people and their flaws is that it can easily tip over – okay, I'll sometimes watch something, and there will be characters that are written in a way that I'll know that the writer just hates human beings. They're expressing this misanthropic point of view with these detestable characters. -Paul Rust

What is interesting to me about watching a show about the 1% is the world in which the 1% exists, meaning the flaws within the 99% that allow the 1% to exist. -Sallie Patrick

As well-intentioned as it might be, the Ali Act suffers from glaring flaws. -Thomas Hauser

I think a lot of that has to do also with… women being a lot more vocal about the fact that, you know, being flawless is false. -Amanda Seales

I have my insecurities, and some days you don't want to be photographed. You notice all of your flaws even if others don't notice them. Photo shoots also feel very vain because it's all about you and your looks and your face. I feel I work better on camera. -Candice Patton

I am a pile of reworked flaws weaved into a semi-functioning man. -Kurt Sutter

Whenever people say nice things to me, I think they're just saying them because I'm standing right in front of them.

Of course I'm happy when people mention his name and mine in the same breath. It's like a dream. But I know they are overpraising 'Your Name' because I am absolutely not at Miyazaki's level. Honestly, I really don't want Miyazaki to see it because he will see all its flaws. -Makoto Shinkai

One of the flaws in the American dream is that there isn't as much of a safety net as you may get in other countries. -Jim Jefferies

The way AI complements people's work, it actually creates a lot of new jobs, a lot of demand.

I think accurately presenting a trans character means not presenting them as perfect – I think there's been a pressure to do this with trans characters. They can have no flaws because they must represent the entire trans community. -Nicole Maines

Our four defensemen all had flaws: one couldn't skate backwards, one couldn't turn to his left, one couldn't turn to his right, and the fourth couldn't pass the puck accurately to our blue line. Somebody had to clear the loose pucks, so I started doing it myself. -Jacques Plante

I love being an actor so much because, as a person, I would be conscious about pimples and weight because I love vanity, and I own up to it.

Humans are incredibly selfish. And in parents, flaws become hyper focused. -Catherine Reitman

You should realize that there is only one version of yourself in the world and that your flaws make you beautiful. -Madison Beer

I believe that attributing flaws to medical characters makes them not just doctors but something more. It makes them people. -Jed Mercurio

When we show our flaws, we show the world that we don't look pretty all the time. -Mahira Khan
