"Don't blame me for the fact that competent programming, as I view it as an intellectual possibility, will be too difficult for 'the average programmer' - you must not fall into the trap of rejecting a surgical technique because it is beyond the capabilities of the barber in his shop around the corner."

Edsger W. Dijkstra

"Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."

'Le Petit Prince', Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"Simplicity is a great virtue but it requires hard work to achieve it and education to appreciate it. And to make matters worse: complexity sells better."

Edsger W. Dijkstra

"If you spend too much time thinking about a thing you'll never get it done."

Bruce Lee
