Great Software Design Ideas from 1844

The following quote is very applicable  to software development in 2010 even though it was written nearly two centuries ago.

“Great design gives no more than its purpose requires; its artistic resources are the very simplest; its arrangement and relationships are the most natural and comprehensible; it is far removed from all ambition, all splendor, and all overburdening.  It is not rich and does not deceive; but it is certain, virtuously true, and intimate.  It proceeds in a strong, straight line to its goal; and a certain childlike sincerity is evident throughout. “   German Encyclopedia 1844.
