A Quote by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov on art, correction, problems, solution, and work

You are right in demanding that an artist approach his work consciously, but you are confusing two concepts: the solution of a problem and the correct formulation of a problem. Only the second is required of the artist.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860 - 1904)
