I came across a collection of great computer programming quotes at devtopics which is hilarious. My top picks are as follows:

“C++ : Where friends have access to your private members.” (Gavin Russell Baker)

“If debugging is the process of removing bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in.” (Edsger W. Dijkstra)

“I don’t care if it works on your machine!  We are not shipping your machine!” (Vidiu Platon)

“No matter how slick the demo is in rehearsal, when you do it in front of a live audience, the probability of a flawless presentation is inversely proportional to the number of people watching, raised to the power of the amount of money involved.” (Mark Gibbs)

“The most amazing achievement of the computer software industry is its continuing cancellation of the steady and staggering gains made by the computer hardware industry.” (Henry Petroski)

“A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.”  Emo Philips

“Programming can be fun, so can cryptography; however they should not be combined.” Kreitzberg and Shneiderman

“Perl: The only language that looks the same before and after RSA encryption.” – Keith Bostic

The original post is here. Please share your picks as well!
