These are excellent. For the quotation mavens who are also into computer science, Jon Louis Bentley (a relatively prominent Bell Labs computer scientist) used to do a column that was entitled “Programming Pearls.” Eventually many of them were collected into a book “Programming Pearls,” which is a good read. When that was successful, they published a sequel “More Programming Pearls: Confessions of a Coder,” which is excellent. From that second volume, what is germane to this point is the article “Bumper Sticker Computer Science.” Some of maxims included there (though not necessarily humorous) contain some potentially painful truisms. This page has many (if not all) of them:

although it should be noted that there is a notice at the top of the page stating that the page “is an outdated, user-generated website brought to you by an archive.It was mirrored from Geocities at the end of October, 2009.”

Sam, thank you.

Skimming through the quotes on that page, one jumped out at me: “The cheapest, fastest and most reliable components of a computer system are those that aren’t there.”

Yeah, I think we’ve all been there …!
