Quotes by Dutch authors

"Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden"
"Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God"
"When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don't throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer"
"The first step on the way to victory is to recognize the enemy"
"Yes, I definitely believe that it has some good cross-platform properties. Object orientation was one of the techniques I used to make Python platform independent"
"The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation"
"Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength"
"Let God's promises shine on your problems"
"I would guess that the decision to create a small special purpose language or use an existing general purpose language is one of the toughest decisions that anyone facing the need for a new language must make"
"I have this hope that there is a better way. Higher-level tools that actually let you see the structure of the software more clearly will be of tremendous value"
"My own perception of that is somewhat colored by where people ask my advice, which is still, of course, about changes to Python internals or at least standard libraries"
"Mark Hammond is working in this area, with Windows Scripting Host. It is definitely an area where Python fits almost perfectly. That's quite independent from Java, actually"
"In my daily work, I work on very large, complex, distributed systems built out of many Python modules and packages. The focus is very similar to what you find, for example, in Java and, in general, in systems programming languages"
"Now, it's my belief that Python is a lot easier than to teach to students programming and teach them C or C++ or Java at the same time because all the details of the languages are so much harder. Other scripting languages really don't work very well there either"
"There was a project at Lawrence Livermore National Labs where many years ago they went down this path for scripting and controlling very large numerical calculations"
"The second stream of material that is going to come out of this project is a programming environment and a set of programming tools where we really want to focus again on the needs of the newbie. This environment is going to have to be extremely user-friendly"
"If you decide to design your own language, there are thousands of sort of amateur language designer pitfalls"
"I love the first two X-Men movies because I thought that Bryan Singer did such a great job. He elevated that whole genre. He's a very talented director"
"Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes"
"The best way to know God is to love many things"
"Worry is a cycle of inefficient thoughts whirling around a center of fear"
"Memories are the key not to the past, but to the future"
"I live in New York. I don't really particularly want to move to LA"
"Robert De Niro... It seemed like a pretty cool thing to do to put his name on my resume next"
"I like to go from mainstream movies to more artsy films. I don't sign on for the money. Maybe I should, but I don't. There's always a good reason for doing something"
"Everybody gets typecast in movies, but you have to make wise choices. I'd say around 90 percent of movie casting is about the way you look, so you have to fight that. If producers had their way, I'd only be in action films, but I'm interested in a more varied career than that"
"The only way to do is just to go for it, otherwise it ends up looking phoney"
