~ If you look for disappointment, you will ultimately find it.

~ If you look for flaws, you will find them.

~ If you look for goodness, and mercy, you will find that too.

~ If you look for perfection, then you should stick with only God, as He will not disappoint, but every man (and woman), will. You will actually disappoint yourself first.

~ Life really is how you see it. Paint your own paradise, and in you go.
