The Wirth and Hoare papers mentioned here this week contain some good quotes on language desgin. Some are even quite witty.
Alas the papers were scanned so there is no easy way to cut&paste from them.
If anyone can spare some time and type some good bits (paragraphs or sentences worth remembering), I'd be very happy to put them on our quotations page.
Best if you send a text message with the HTML ready for cut&paste, formatted in the standard way.
