"if you want something done right, write a program.", D. E. Knuth's rule.
- "Statistics are used much like a drunk uses a lamppost: for support, not illumination.", V. Scully.
- "The question of whether a computer can think is no more
interesting than the question of whether a submarine can swim.",
"Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes.",
E. W. Dijkstra.
"I sat down and started to type in the entire program in Pascal. After X hours the entire system was entered. Then I tried to compile it all. After
fixing a few syntax errors the system compiled. I then tried to typeset a sample piece of TeX. Again after fixing a few errors I got this all to work.",
R. J. Lipton's short version of Knuth's talk on the first version of TeX.
