Quotations

There follow a a hand full of odd quotations not necessarily engineering related. These are here for fun and light relief. If any quotation is un-attributed that is due to our lack of knowledge. Please feel free to let us know if we have incorrectly attributed any quotation.

Structural engineering is the art of modelling materials we do not wholly understand into shapes we cannot precisely analyse so as to withstand forces we cannot properly assess in such a way that the public at large has no reason to suspect the extent of our ignorance.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Rick Cook, The Wizardry Compiled

...when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes)

All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.
