“when writing tests you should prefer DAMP (Descriptive And Maintainable Procedures) to DRY.”
Jay Fields, Working Effectively with Unit Tests

“Tests do not, or at least should not collaborate; it’s universally accepted that inter-test dependency is an anti-pattern.”
Jay Fields, Working Effectively with Unit Tests

“The thing to remember with support is that true support always brings you back to your own sense of agency and confidence, not your need to rely on something or someone outside of you. A person who offers you support with integrity does so in a way that makes space for your fear and insecurities and doubts, whether rational or not, but does not enable them.”
Jay Fields

“Any fool can write a test that helps them today. Good programmers write tests that help the entire team in the future.”
Anonymous

“Being a human was about making sense of chaos, finding meaning among the random elements of the world.”
Brandon Sanderson, Oathbringer

“There’s not enough room in a man’s head for sanity alongside each grief, each worry, each terror that he owns.”
Mark Lawrence, Prince of Fools
