When I complained about something hard, my now-ex-boss said, "Nothing hard, just sit down and do it."

I know it is not great quote, but I was shocked at that moment. Since then on I just keep learning and do what I want.

 
 

"your code is not for the machines, it's for other humans"

"The most dangerous phrase in the language is 'we've always done it this way.'" Admiral Grace Hopper

Too true.
