John Ashbery

Most good things are tentative, or should be if they aren’t…The artists of the world can be divided into two groups: those who organize and premeditate, and those who accept the tentative, the whatever happens along. And though neither method is inherently superior, and one must always proceed by cases, I probably prefer more works of art that fall in the latter category.

John Ashbery, in an essay on the work of Jane Freilicher
