Great programming quotes

Leo en el blog de Sebastián Gomez sobre great programming quotes, de una pregunta en Stack Overflow.

A mi también me pareció interesante para compartir :), así que acá van algunas de las que me gustaron:
Hofstadter's Law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.
Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live. (Rick Osborne)
Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I’ll use regular expressions." Now they have two problems.
In order to understand recursion, one must first understand recursion (un clásico)
It works on my machine.
If debugging is the process of removing software bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in. (Edsger Dijkstra, otro clásico...)
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. (Antoine de Saint Exupéry, no creo que fuera programador, pero igual cuenta...)
Debuggers don't remove bugs. They only show them in slow motion.
Never trust a programmer in a suit.
Measuring programming progress by lines of code is like measuring aircraft building progress by weight. (Bill Gates)
