"if you want something done right, write a program.", D. E. Knuth's rule.
- "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.
- "Statistics are used much like a drunk uses a lamppost: for support, not illumination.", V. Scully.
"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.
