|#2566||Prediction is very difficult, especially of the future.|
- Niels Bohr
|#2567||The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact|
mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows.
- Frank Zappa
|#2568||Things are not as simple as they seems at first.|
- Edward Thorp
|#2569||The main thing is the play itself. I swear that greed for money has nothing|
to do with it, although heaven knows I am sorely in need of money.
- Feodor Dostoyevsky
|#2570||It is surely a great calamity for a human being to have no obsessions.|
- Robert Bly
|#2571||Machines take me by surprise with great frequency.|
- Alan Turing
|#2572||Uncertain fortune is thoroughly mastered by the equity of the calculation.|
- Blaise Pascal

- Freeman Dyson
|#2574||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 is to
make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.
- Charles Anthony Richard Hoare
|#2575||Do not allow this language (Ada) in its present state to be used in|
applications where reliability is critical, i.e., nuclear power stations,
cruise missiles, early warning systems, anti-ballistic missle defense
systems. The next rocket to go astray as a result of a programming language
error may not be an exploratory space rocket on a harmless trip to Venus:
It may be a nuclear warhead exploding over one of our cities. An unreliable
programming language generating unreliable programs constitutes a far
greater risk to our environment and to our society than unsafe cars, toxic
pesticides, or accidents at nuclear power stations.
- C. A. R. Hoare
