Not physically possible. There will always be someone more attractive/more intelligent/stronger etc... What is achievable however is being the best that you can be, as cliched as that is! haha

I don't understand why people say this. It is entirely possible. It is just unlikely to be perfect in the eyes of society.

No perfect is perfect.
"Perfect" is subjective.

Perfect is based on perspective. You can't be perfect in everyone's eyes

Guess what OP?
Perfection cannot be obtained, NEVER.
It is a illusion.
We all have things which we desire but never achieve it or acquire.
That's the fundamental role of life.

To quote good will hunting:

"but, those are the things I miss the most. The little idiosyncrasies that only I knew about. That's what made her my wife. Oh, and she had the goods on me, too; she knew all my little peccadillos. People call these things imperfections, but they're not — aw that's the good stuff. And then we get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds."

No one can specify how you can be perfect if you don't say how you're imperfect.
To contradict what I just said: how to get perfect? improve

No perfect is perfect.
Perfect is lifeless. It is an ideal dependent upon each individual. You can't be perfect because everyone has a different idea of what constitutes perfection. Your perspective of perfection is unachievable because human nature dictates that we will always long to be the impossible.
I think it's true to say that perfect has no soul. Forced perfection will only ever be skin deep and if anyone ever achieves that, they will put all their time and effort in remaining so.
Don't aim for perfection. There is so much more to life.

How is the statement "human nature dictates that we will always long to be the impossible" true ?

A bit of both. Science can't explain how we think as that depends on a huge variety of factors- it's the nature versus nurture debate. However psychologically speaking we will always long for power to varying degrees, this is seen in the animal kingdom all the time with the constant competition. The need for perfection can be seen as an offshoot of this.
We long for things that don't exist as this allows us to develop and evolve. For example at one point in time fire didn't exist, but people would have still longed for a way to create warmth. Logically speaking, things that are completely impossible will also be included in that category of things that do not exist so we will long for them as well.
It is definitely something people say; but that doesn't mean it isn't true.
It's up to you.

Perfection doesn't exist in reality unfortunately no matter how hard us perfectionists strive for it.
