"A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little nor too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity. "
- Geoffrey James - From The Tao of Programming, message 4.1.

"The structure of a software system will reflect the communication structure of the team that built it"
- R. E. Fairley

"Smart data structures and dumb code works a lot better than the other way around."
- Eric Raymond

"The beginning of wisdom for a programmer is to recognize the difference between getting his program to work and getting it right. A program which does not work is undoubtedly wrong; but a program which does work is not necessarily right. It may still be wrong because it is hard to understand; or because it is hard to maintain as the problem requirements change; or because its structure is different from the structure of the problem; or because we cannot be sure that it does indeed work"
- Michael A. Jackson - Principles of Program Design", Academic Press, 1975
