When you’ve got the code all ripped apart, it’s like a car that’s all disassembled. You’ve got all the parts tying all over your garage and you have to replace the broken part or the car will never run. It’s not fun until the code gets back to the baseline again. -- Gary Kildall (inventor of CP/M, one of the first OS for the micro).
No art, however minor, demands less than total dedication if you want to excel in it. -- Alberti
Des mots simples, quand ils sont bien utilisés, font faire à des gens ordinaires des choses extraordinaires. -- Khaled TANGAO
We are the sum of our behaviours; excellence therefore is not an act but a habit. -- Aristotle.
The most damaging phrase in the language is, It's always been done that way. -- Rear Admiral Grace Hopper
Measuring programming progress by lines of code is like measuring aircraft building progress by weight. -- Bill Gates
It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years. –Abraham Lincoln

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. ~Steve Jobs
