Without requirements or design, programming is the art of adding bugs to an empty text file

“Software testing proves the existing of bugs not their absence.” – Anonymous

“Quality is free, but only to those who are willing to pay heavily for it.” – T. DeMarco and T. Lister

“If you don’t like unit testing your product, most likely your customers won’t like to test it either.” – Anonymous

“Software never was perfect and won’t get perfect. But is that a license to create garbage? The missing ingredient is our reluctance to quantify quality.” – Boris Beizer

“Just because you’ve counted all the trees doesn’t mean you’ve seen the forest.” – Anonymous

“Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done.” – Robert A. Heinlein

“Everyone knows that debugging is twice as hard as writing a program in the first place. So if you are as clever as you can be when you write it, how will you ever debug it?” – Brian Kernighan

“If you don’t care about quality, you can meet any other requirement.” – Gerald M. Weinberg

“It’s more important to have the right people involved than it is to follow the process exactly right.“ – Rex Black

“A pinch of probability is worth a pound of perhaps.” – James Thurber

“When your car is about to go off a cliff, it’s a weird time to be thinking about gas mileage and drag coefficients; better to take the right control action—look out the window and steer or use the brake until you’re back on course.” – Michael Bolton

“Treat your password like your toothbrush. Don’t let anybody else use it, and get a new one every six months.” – Clifford Stoll

“Good programmers write code for humans first and computers next.” – Anonymous

“It’s more about good enough than it is about right or wrong.” – James Bach

“The principle objective of software testing is to give confidence in the software.” – Anonymous

“Quality is the ally of schedule and cost, not their adversary. If we have to sacrifice quality to meet schedule, it’s because we are doing the job wrong from the very beginning.” – James A. Ward

“Software testing proves the existing of bugs not their absence.” – Anonymous

“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort.” – John Ruskin

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of meeting the schedule has been forgotten.” – Anonymous

“I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.” – John Peel

“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There’s no point in being a damn fool about it.” – W. C. Fields

“The problem with troubleshooting is that trouble shoots back.” – Author Unknown
