Quotes: Monk + Wainwright

M  i  s  t  a  k  e  s

"I made the wrong mistakes." 
-- Thelonious Monk, American jazz pianist and composer after a disappointing performance

"A mistake is the most beautiful thing in the world. It is the only way you can get to some place you've never been before. I try to make as many as I can. Making a mistake is the only way you can grow." 
-- E.W. Wainwright, drummer (conversation with Nathaniel Klemp, 2001)
