A collection of my favorite quotes.
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.

Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Invest in the abstraction, not the implementation. Abstractions can survive the barrage of changes from different implementations and new technologies.
Practice is the best of all instructors.
Premature optimization is the root of all evil.
We cannot possess what we do not understand.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
