Mistakes will inevitably be committed. It is impossible not to commit them. The commission of mistakes is a necessary condition for the formation of a correct line … The correct line is formed in the struggle with the incorrect line. To say that mistakes can all be avoided, [so that] there are only correct things, and no mistakes, is an anti-Marxist proposition … That there should be only correct things, and nothing erroneous, as [sic] without precedent in history, it amounts to denying the law of the unity of opposites. It is metaphysical. (Mao, 1958H: 113)
