Writing Smart Code

This quote has been doing the rounds lately, at least I’ve seen it on two or three different blogs, most recently here

> Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
> Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
> definition, not smart enough to debug it.

Brian Kernighan
