Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by neglect.
~ Hanlon’s Razor


Like Occam’s razor, this heuristic is a useful tool for rapid decision-making and intelligent cognition.

This i brilliant! Thank you for directing my attention to W. Edwards Deming.

I found his philosophy on quality summarized in two points in the Wikipedia article:

  1. When people and organizations focus primarily on quality, defined by the following ratio,
     
    Quality = (Results of work efforts) / (Total costs)
     
    quality tends to increase and costs fall over time.
     
  2. However, when people and organizations focus primarily on costs, costs tend to rise and quality declines over time.

This is music in my ears. And it's short enough to be a very good quote, also.

The one, true, and real Harvey

Bene vixit, bene qui latuit
René Descartes

You can get in way more trouble with a good idea than a bad idea, because you forget that the good idea has limits. ~ Benjamin Graham

Yep, that about sums up blasphemy.

History is a pack of lies about events that never happened told by people who weren't there.

George Santayana.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
