"It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission". - Grace Hopper


Interesting quotes by Grace Hopper:
  • If it's a good idea, go ahead and do it. It is much easier to apologize than it is to get permission.
  • A ship in port is safe; but that is not what ships are built for. Sail out to sea and do new things.
  • I've always been more interested in the future than in the past.
  • Humans are allergic to change. They love to say, "We've always done it this way." I try to fight that. That's why I have a clock on my wall that runs counter-clockwise.
  • We're flooding people with information. We need to feed it through a processor. A human must turn information into intelligence or knowledge. We've tended to forget that no computer will ever ask a new question.
