"Take advantage of the awareness of perfection in your mind. See perfection in everything around you. See if you can discover your true feelings when listening to music. Make happiness your goal. The way to discover the truth about this life is to discover yourself. Say to yourself, ‘What do I like and what do I want?’ Find out exactly what you want in life. Ask your mind for inspiration about everything."
— Agnes Martin, whose early work is on view through May 12 in Agnes Martin: The New York–Taos Connection (1947–1957)
