  • Hofstadter's Law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.
  • Capers Jones: High-quality software is not expensive. High-quality software is faster and cheaper to build and maintain than low-quality software, from initial development all the way through total cost of ownership.
