I was just reading a paper on porting systems and it included these two quotes by famous computer scientists.
Thought I would share here. I love the 1st one! And I have some experience to prove he's correct.
"Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are,
by definition, not smart enough to debug it." (Brian Kernighan)
"The competent programmer is fully aware of the strictly limited size of his own skull;
therefore he approaches the programming task in full humility, and among other things
he avoids clever tricks like the plague." (Edsger Dijkstra)
