“Programmers are not mathematicians, no matter how much we wish and wish for it.”
Richard P. Gabriel

“It is only when we forget the ideas behind building something wonderful that we can actually do the building that makes things wonderful.”
Richard P. Gabriel

“The problem with traditional approaches to abstraction and encapsulation is that they aim at complete information hiding. This characteristic anticipates being able to eliminate programming from parts of the software development process, those parts contained within module boundaries. As we've seen, though, the need to program is never eliminated because customization, modification, and maintenance are always required-that is, piecemeal growth.”
Richard P. Gabriel, Patterns of Software: Tales from the Software Community
