Louise Bourgeois

“Once I was beset by anxiety. I couldn’t tell right from left or orient myself. I could have cried out with terror at being lost. But I pushed the fear away—by studying the sky, determining where the moon would come out, where the sun would appear in the morning. I saw myself in relation to the stars. I began weeping and knew I was alright. That is the way I make use of geometry. The miracle is that I am able to do it by geometry.”
