hmmm, I think if it were perfect, people wouldn't be filled with the strength that only can be brought from rising above when life throws those bad things at you.

But OTOH, we wouldn't need that strength if all was perfect

The very first thing I thought of when I read the first quote (Dan Quayle) was a different quote from Martin Luther King:

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

I used to long for or dream of peace on earth..... until I understand just exactly what that meant. A stagnant boring place without change. Life doesn't always go the way I want it to, but it is perfect just the way it is, IMO.
