Hi David!

I don't think any of us appear perfect. Correct me if I'm wrong. HPB and
other writers may have sometimes appeared perfect because they didn't really
write about their personal lives that much. They just wrote about the
teachings and in that way we were all humbled because we aren't as easily
removed from our personal lives.
