Here I put codes and my favorite quotes, words I collect from wise person.


You think you know when you learn, are more sure
when you can write, even more when you can teach,
but certain when you can program.
-- Alan Perlis (1922-1990)
Yale University computer scientist

Certum quod factum.
(One is certain of only what one builds.)
-- Giovanni Battista Vico (1688-1744)
Italian Royal Historiographer

A language that doesn’t affect the way
you think about programming is not worth knowing.
-- Alan Perlis

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more
complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius
-- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction.
-- Albert Einstein

No doubt about it. Common Lisp is a big language.
-- Guy L. Steele, Jr.
Foreword to Koschman 1990

There are only two qualities in the world: effiency
and inefficiency; and only two sorts of people: the
efficient and the inefficient.
-- George Bernard Shaw
JohnBull's Other Island (1904)

It's said that to explain is to explain away.
-- Joseph Weizenbaum
MIT computer scientist

Man is a tool-using animal...
Without tools he is nothing,
with tools he is all.

[This] is an example par excellence of the power of
using meaning to solve linguistic problems.

MIT computer scientist

Elegance is not optional
-- Richard O'Keefe (Programmer)

The best is the enemy of the good
"La Bégueule" -- Voltaire 1772

One of the conclusions that we reached was that the "object" need not be a primitive notion in a programming language; one can build objects and their behaviour from little more than assignable value cells and good old lambda expressions. -- Guy Steele on the design of Scheme

Patterns mean "I have run out of language." — Rich Hickey
