The last line means: Set the variable org-agenda-time-grid
to a list that consists of the symbol (!) "freq", the sym-
bol "times", the string "---" and the string "+++".  How-
ever, you want the first and second elements to be the val-
ues of those variables, so you could say:

| (setq org-agenda-time-grid `(,freq ,times "---" "+++"))

or:

| (setq org-agenda-time-grid (list freq times "---" "+++"))

(NB: There are more subtleties to this (e. g., a symbol can
have separate meanings as a variable and a function (and I
really should finally read the elisp info file from begin-
ning to end :-)))), but my most common mistake is either to
quote something that I do not want to quote or not quote
something that I do want to quote.)
