What Dost Thou Lookest For?






“It is impossible to sharpen a pencil with a blunt axe. It is equally vain to try to do it with ten blunt axes instead.”

“Testing shows the presence, not the absence of bugs.”

“If you want more effective programmers, you will discover that they should not waste their time debugging.  They should not introduce the bugs to start with.”

“Perfecting oneself is as much unlearning as it is learning.”
