More From Donald Knuth
- "People who are more than casually interested in computers should have at least some idea of what the underlying hardware is like. Otherwise the programs they write will be pretty weird."
- "Let us change our traditional attitude to the construction of programs. Instead of imagining that our main task is to instruct a computer what to do, let us concentrate rather on explaining to human beings what we want a computer to do."
- "Everyday life is like programming, I guess. If you love something you can put beauty into it."

- "People, and especially theologians, should try to familiarize themselves with scientific ideas. Of course, science is technical in many respects, but there are some very good books that try to set out some of the conceptual structure of science."― John Polkinghorne
- "I think the reason people are dealing with science less well now than 50 years ago is that it has become so complicated."― James D. Watson
