- "I never knew a programmer who didn't think he couldn't do UI, and I never knew one who could"
- "Each time you miss a deadline, you make the next deadline easier to miss."
- "Far more programs die from not shipping than from shipping with not enough features."
- "The likelihood of hitting a deadline is proportional to the number of deadlines you've already hit."
- "Comments rust; use longer variable names"
- "You won't be in the room when your book is read. "
- "We are so lazy, we'll work all day to save a few minutes doing a task — which isn't so crazy if we're going to do that task hundreds of times!"
- "Monogamy is what you choose, bisexual is what you are."
- "If the gay community can't embrace bisexuals, how can we expect the straight community to embrace queers?"
