Quote of the Day

” The programmers of old were mysterious and profound.
We cannot fathom their thoughts, so all we do is describe their appearance.
Aware, like a fox crossing the water.
Alert, like a general on the battlefield.
Kind, like a hostess greeting her guests.
Simple, like uncarved blocks of wood.
Opaque, like black pools in darkened caves.
Who can tell the secrets of their hearts and minds?
The answer exists only in the Tao.”
(Geoffrey James, The Tao of Programming)
