About this Quote

This quote by Charles F. Kettering speaks with the idea that developers are often seen as eccentric or weird, however that their viewpoints of other individuals are seldom thought about. It suggests that developers are typically judged and misinterpreted, which their viewpoints are not taken into account. This might be translated as a criticism of society's tendency to overlook the thoughts and feelings of creators. It could likewise be viewed as a call to action, motivating people to make the effort to listen to and understand the viewpoints of developers. Eventually, this quote works as a pointer that developers are people too, which their viewpoints should be respected and valued.
