“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

“I don’t like test names. Technically they’re method names, but they’re never called explicitly.”
Jay Fields, Working Effectively with Unit Tests

“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
