Simple, Elegant, Correct

Iwein Fuld

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Leonardo da Vinci

The simplest things are often the truest.

Richard Bach

Simplicity is the nature of great souls.

Papa Ramadas

Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.

Frederic Chopin

A taste for simplicity cannot endure for long.

Eugene Delacroix

As beautiful as simplicity is, it can become a tradition that stands in the way of exploration.

Laura Nyro

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.

Albert Einstein

Simplicity is prerequisite for reliability.

Edsger Dijkstra

Even before string theory, especially as physics developed in the 20th century, it turned out that the equations that really work in describing nature with the most generality and the greatest simplicity are very elegant and subtle.

Edward Witten

I despise simplicity. It is the negation of all that is beautiful.

Norman Hartnell

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it.

A program that produces incorrect results twice as fast is infinitely slower.

John Osterhout

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

Brian W. Kernighan & P.J. Plauger

Maybe I do what I do because if I built anything more complicated, I couldn't understand it. I really must break it down into little pieces.

Ken Thompson

The competent programmer is fully aware of the strictly limited size of his own skull; therefore he approaches the programming task in full humility, and among other things he avoids clever tricks like the plague.

Edsger Dijkstra

Are you quite sure that all those bells and whistles, all those wonderful facilities of your so called powerful programming languages, belong to the solution set rather than the problem set?

Edsger Dijkstra

Mostly, when you see programmers, they aren't doing anything. One of the attractive things about programmers is that you cannot tell whether or not they are working simply by looking at them. Very often they're sitting there seemingly drinking coffee and gossiping, or just staring into space. What the programmer is trying to do is get a handle on all the individual and unrelated ideas that are scampering around in his head.

Charles M. Strauss

Correctness is clearly the prime quality. If a system does not do what it is supposed to do, then everything else about it matters little.

Bertrand Meyer
