Je suis extrêmement exigeant et je trouve que l'exigence c'est une des plus belles vertus du monde. (I am extremely demanding, and I find that being demanding is one of life's most beautiful virtues.)-Vincent Lindon
I am demanding. I feel it more often now that I am retired. I demanded that the garage be cleaned, that the yard be redone, that the crawl space be uncluttered. I demand a better life. I expect it, but I also put my back into it. I am not satisfied with "good enough", I want better.
Not always 'agréable' for the people around me but the results are consistently appreciated.
