Favourite Quotes…

OK, this is not a technical post, but I do like succinct, pithy quotes. They seem to sum up what we often do as developers, that is, reduce things to simple, but information rich forms, meme's if you will. Here are just a few of my favourite quotes:
In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
Benjamin Franklin

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
- George Santayana
(often paraphased as: Those that ignore history, are doomed to repeat it.)

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
- Voltaire

Never hold discussions with the monkey when the organ grinder is in the room.
- Sir Winston Churchill
History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.
- Sir Winston Churchill

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.
- Albert Einstein

Any fool can defend his or her mistakes … and most fools do.
- Dale Carnegie
