Author: Brian Behlendorf
8. "Programmers are always surrounded by complexity; we cannot avoid it. Our applications are complex because we are ambitious to use our computers in ever more sophisticated ways. Programming is complex because of the large number of conflicting objectives for each of our programming projects. If our basic tool, the language in which we design and code our programs, is also complicated, the language itself becomes part of the problem rather than part of its solution."
Author: C.A.R. Hoare
9. "But to me, each revision of the document simply showed how far the initial Flevel implementation had progressed. Those parts of the language that were not yet implemented were still described in free-flowing flowery prose giving promise of unalloyed delight. In the parts that had been implemented, the flowers had withered; they were choked by an undergrowth of explanatory footnotes, placing arbitrary and unpleasant restrictions on the use of each feature and loading upon a programmer the responsibility for controlling the complex and unexpected side-effects and interaction effects with all the other features of the language."
Author: C.A.R. Hoare
10. "What was amazing was that a large team of highly intelligent programmers could labor so hard and so long on such an unpromising project. You know, you shouldn't trust us intelligent programmers. We can think up such good arguments for convincing ourselves and each other of the utterly absurd. Especially don't believe us when we promise to repeat an earlier success, only bigger and better next time."
Author: C.A.R. Hoare
11. "To a programmer, an operating system is defined by its API."
Author: Charles Petzold
12. "Like the famous mad philosopher said, when you stare into the void, the void stares also; but if you cast into the void, you get a type conversion error. (Which just goes to show Nietzsche wasn't a C++ programmer.)"
Author: Charles Stross
13. "Did that high-and-mighty attitude of yours come attached to you when you were spawned?!Was it a bug your programmer couldn't fix?!"
Author: CLAMP
14. "Few classical programmers found prototypal inheritance to be acceptable, and classically inspired syntax obscures the language's true prototypal nature. It is the worst of both worlds."
Author: Douglas Crockford
15. "It is practically impossible to teach good programming to students that have had a prior exposure to BASIC: as potential programmers they are mentally mutilated beyond hope of regeneration."
Author: Edsger Dijkstra
16. "The competent programmer is fully aware of the limited size of his own skull. He therefore approaches his task with full humility, and avoids clever tricks like the plague."
Author: Edsger Dijkstra
17. "Besides a mathematical inclination, an exceptionally good mastery of one's native tongue is the most vital asset of a competent programmer."
Author: Edsger W. Dijkstra
18. "All programmers are optimists"
Author: Frederick P. Brooks Jr.
19. "The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He builds his castles in the air, from air, creating by exertion of the imagination.

Author: Frederick P. Brooks Jr.
20. "The conclusion is simple: if a 200-man project has 25 managers who are the most competent and experienced programmers,fire the 175 troops and put the managers back to programming."

Author: John Carmack
23. "Sun's role in the grand scheme of development is to work on the runtime environment and the APIs. The tools we produce are much more for systems programmers, not enterprise developers."
Author: John Fowler
24. "You might not think that programmers are artists, but programming is an extremely creative profession. It's logic-based creativity."
Author: John Romero
25. "The Scooby gang doesn't travel because they are looking for crimes to solve. They travel because they're one step ahead of the deprogrammers. Somehow, Fred's got them all snookered. It probably has something to do with the Scooby Snacks."
Author: John Scalzi
26. "The computer programmer is a creator of universes for which he alone is the lawgiver. No playwright, no stage director, no emperor, however powerful, has ever exercised such absolute authority to arrange a stage or field of battle and to command such unswervingly dutiful actors or troops."
Author: Joseph Weizenbaum
27. "I am a programmer."
Author: Ken Thompson
28. "Modernism was based on a kind of arrogance ... and led designers to believe that if they thought of something cool, it must be considered universally cool. That is, if something's worth doing, it's worth driving into the ground to the exclusion of all other approaches. Look at the use of parentheses in Lisp or the use of white space as syntax in Python. Or the mandatory use of objects in many languages, including Java. All of these are ways of taking freedom away from the end user "for their own good". They're just versions of Orwell's Newspeak, in which it's impossible to think bad thoughts. We escaped from the fashion police in the 1970s, but many programmers are still slaves of the cyber police."
Author: Larry Wall

Author: Malcolm Gladwell
34. "Programmers work in bursts of productivity. Then, they let the brain rest and get back into it. A lot about the office world is not a great fit for me."
Author: Marco Arment
35. "Magicians are typically introverted; they don't tend to work with others, but I work with software programmers, composers, designers, so it's a very diverse group and the result is always more interesting than something I could have done by myself."
Author: Marco Tempest
36. "Beyond basic mathematical aptitude, the difference between good programmers and great programmers is verbal ability."
Author: Marissa Mayer

Author: Peter Seibel
45. "If programmers deserve to be rewarded for creating innovative programs, by the same token they deserve to be punished if they restrict the use of these programs."
Author: Richard Stallman
46. "America pays defense contractors to build aircraft carriers. Google pays brilliant programmers to do whatever the hell they want."
Author: Robin Sloan
47. "All great programmers learn the same way. They poke the box. They code something and see what the computer does. They change it and see what the computer does. They repeat the process again and again until they figure out how the box works."
Author: Seth Godin
48. "The trouble with programmers is that you can never tell what a programmer is doing until it's too late."
Author: Seymour Cray
49. "Jobs was a strong-willed, elitist artist who didn't want his creations mutated inauspiciously by unworthy programmers. To him it would be as if someone off the street added some brush strokes to a Picasso painting or changed the lyrics to a Dylan song."
