Mistakes Quotes

"If as Foucault had also argued, 'life is what is capable of error,' and error itself is 'at the root of what makes human thought and history,' then to prohibit error would be to end evolution. Error lifted us out of the primordial slime."

"The British critic Nigel  Andrews once wrote, 'If something or someone doesn't work, it's in a state of grace, progress, and evolution. It will attract love and empathy. If it does work, it has merely completed its job and is probably dead."

Quoted in: Andrew Solomon, Far From the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity.
