Yes. These are the words from fairy tales. Reason is that one of the fairy showed me their dictionary where these words were mentioned.

Fight for perfection...but not to exhaustion! No one is perfect... that's why pencils have erasers. When you aim for perfection, you discover it's a moving target.
Guru's say that nobody is perfect. Then they tell you practice makes perfect. I wish they'd make up their minds first. Till then let's not make the best as enemy of better or good

To be honest, you are right.none can be ideal or perfect as they say.one can be nearer to perfection or ideal.that is the reality.

No.. they are found in reality too.

Following are the examples

1. Abhishek Bachchan, he uses these two adjectives for his father & for his wise (Ash)
2. Gauri Khan would use this for SRK
3. Kokilaben for Dhirubhai Ambani

When I say pefect and ideal there wud not be any reason for why it is. In similar way one can't decide, How ideal and perfect someone or something is, Because the base supportive characteristic which give them this identity are based on conjectural assumption.
