words that struck a chord (sung in the movie "Babe")
And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair... ~~~ Kahlil Gibran
As soon as we started programming, we found to our surprise that it wasn't as easy to get programs right as we had thought. Debugging had to be discovered. I can remember the exact instant when I realized that a large part of my life from then on was going to be spent in finding mistakes in my own programs.
Maurice Wilkes, 1949
