Best Functionality Quotes

  1. “Silence and stillness are not states and therefore cannot be produced or created. Silence is the non-state in which all states arise and subside.

As you rest more profoundly as the witness, all objects take on their natural functionality, and awareness becomes free of the mind’s compulsive contractions and identifications. It returns to its natural non-state of Presence.” ~ Adyashanti

It is therefore more important by far for humans to be able to understand the program than it is for the computer.” ~ Yukihiro Matsumoto

  37. “My favorite method of encryption is chunking revolutionary documents inside a mess of JPEG or MP3 code and emailing it off as an “image” or a “song.” But besides functionality, code also possesses literary value. If we frame that code and read it through the lens of literary criticism, we will find that the past hundred years of modernist and postmodernist writing have demonstrated the artistic value of similar seemingly arbitrary arrangements of letters.” ~ Kenneth Goldsmith

  43. “I think the first time you have to change code you’ve written previously, to add features or remove a bug, you realize that you could have done it better in the first place, that you could have found an architecture that would make it easier to transform and grow the code. And this is terribly seductive—you’re not just building a solution to a problem, you’re potentially building a beautiful solution, with ‘beautiful’ here being defined here by an aesthetics of present and future functionality. This can be a trap.” ~ Vikram Chandra

This became a lifelong project for me.” ~ Ji Lee
