“I have discovered that all the unhappiness of men arises from one single fact, that they cannot stay quietly in their own chamber. A man who has enough to live on, if he knew how to stay with pleasure at home, would not leave it to go to sea or to besiege a town. A commission in the army would not be bought so dearly, but that it is found insufferable not to budge from the town; and men only seek conversation and entering games, because they cannot remain with pleasure at home.”
--Blaise Pascal, Pensées, thought #139

“The idea of programming as self-expression is now one of my strongest held beliefs and is the reason why, for personal projects, coding aesthetics are so important. The key is this: to express yourself within programming all decisions must be personal. They cannot be prescribed from a boss, textbook, or dogma. They must come from the head and heart.”
--Daniel Holden

“Art is the product of passion. Passionate developers learn new engineering processes. In turn, it will be the passionate engineer that turns into the artist.”
--Max Pool

“90% of programmers are incompetent”
--Stephan T. Lavavej

“C++ is designed to allow you to express ideas, but if you don't have ideas or don't have any clue about how to express them, C++ doesn't offer much help”
--Bjarne Stroustrup

“What would happen if I did this impossible thing?”
--Scott Meyers

“My philosophy: don't read, just do. This is one of the core tenets of people who love to program.”
--Lee Gao

“Not writing templates in C++ is like watching porn without masturbating.”
