“Of all the pitfalls in our paths and the tremendous delays and wanderings off the track, I want to say that they are not what they seem to be.

I want to say that all that seems like fantastic mistakes are not mistakes, all that seems like error is not error; and it all has to be done.

That which seems like a false step is the next step.”

Agnes Martin, Canadian, painter
