Scheme wasn’t like that at all. We were actually trying to build something complicated and discovered, serendipitously, that we had accidentally designed something that met all our goals but was much simpler than we had intended.

A nice and concise piece of history from the founding fathers of Scheme. Something to be read as an introduction before their "Lambda: the Ultimate" papers. Or after them :-)
