A couple of the quotes and quips I've collected.
There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult.
The belief that complex systems require armies of designers and programmers is wrong. A system that is not understood in its entirety, or at least to a significant degree of detail by a single individual, should probably not be built.
Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.
Code is about communication with other humans and giving instructions to a computer, but is now much more of the former than the latter.
