Elegance is not a dispensable luxury but a factor that decides between success and failure.
More Edsger W. Dijkstra quotes :
The question of whether a computer can think is no more interesting than the question of whether a submarine can swim.Edsger Dijkstra
Why has elegance found so little following? That is the reality of it. Elegance has the disadvantage, if that's what it is, that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it.Edsger Dijkstra
