Performant code is worthless. Broken code is extremely profitable.

Developers are like plague doctors, paid to perform their grim work and then shunned when the patient dies or is cured. Disposable.

The world constantly changes. Some things last for a long time, other things dissapear and are barely remembered.

People work hard, but the work is never completed.

Thats life.


Tao abides in non-action,
Yet nothing is left undone.
If kings and lords observed this,
The ten thousand things would develop naturally.
If they still desired to act,
They would return to the simplicity of formless substance.
Without form there is no desire.
Without desire there is tranquillity.
And in this way all things would be at peace.

Tao Te Ching by Lao Tsu
