Definition of Perfection

An imaginary state of quality distinguished from the actual by an element known as excellence; an attribute of the critic.   The editor of an English magazine having received a letter pointing out the erroneous nature of his views and style, and signed 'Perfection,' promptly wrote at the foot of the letter:  'I don't agree with you,' and mailed it to Matthew Arnold.
