Mistakes mean progress

Todays quotation is from The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers.

Mas laughed. ‘Pairs are not inventors. They are too unfocused, too short-lived. Good for Navigating and discussing theories, but bad at building. Building takes many, many mistakes. Pairs do not like mistakes. They like staring out windows. But Solitary like mistakes. Mistakes mean progress. We make good things. Great things.’
