Augusta Ada Byron King, Countess of Lovelace, allgemein als Ada Lovelace bekannt , war eine britische Mathematikerin. Für einen nie fertiggestellten mechanischen Computer, die „Analytical Engine“ von Charles Babbage, veröffentlichte sie als Erste ein komplexes Programm: Es nahm wesentliche Aspekte späterer Programmiersprachen wie etwa ein Unterprogramm oder die Verzweigung vorweg. Aus diesem Grund wird sie heute als erste Person überhaupt angesehen, die als Programmierer bezeichnet werden kann – fast einhundert Jahre vor den modernen Pionieren der Programmierung wie Grace Hopper, Jean Bartik oder Howard Aiken. Die Programmiersprache Ada und die Lovelace Medal wurden nach ihr benannt.

Zitate Ada Lovelace

„God has not given to us (in this state of existence) more than very limited powers of expression of one's ideas and feelings“

—  Ada Lovelace
Context: Circumstances have been such, that I have lived almost entirely secluded for some time. Those who are much in earnest and with single minds devoted to any great object in life, must find this occasionally inevitable.... You will wonder at having heard nothing from me; but you have experience and candour enough to perceive and know that God has not given to us (in this state of existence) more than very limited powers of expression of one's ideas and feelings... I shall be very desirous of again seeing you. You know what that means from me, and that it is no form, but the simple expression and result of the respect and attraction I feel for a mind that ventures to read direct in God's own book, and not merely thro' man's translation of that same vast and mighty work. In a letter to Andrew Crosse, as quoted in Eugen Kölbing's Englische Studien, Volume 19 https://archive.org/stream/englischestudien19leipuoft#page/157/mode/1up (1894), Leipzig; O.R. Reisland, "Byron's Daughter", p. 157.

„I do not regret the sufferings and peculiaties of my physical constitution. They have taught me, and continue to teach me, that which I think nothing else could have developed. It is a force and control put upon me by Providence which I must obey. And the effects of this continual disciple of facts are mighty. They tame the in the best sense of that word, and they fan into existence a pure, bright, holy, unselfish flame within that sheds cheerfulness and light on many.“

Context: With all my wiry power and strength, I am prone at times to bodily sufferings, connected chiefly with the digestive organs, of no common degree or king. I do not regret the sufferings and peculiaties of my physical constitution. They have taught me, and continue to teach me, that which I think nothing else could have developed. It is a force and control put upon me by Providence which I must obey. And the effects of this continual disciple of facts are mighty. They tame the in the best sense of that word, and they fan into existence a pure, bright, holy, unselfish flame within that sheds cheerfulness and light on many. — Ever yours truly. "A. A. Lovelace."

Reisland, "Byron's Daughter", p. 158.

„I am more than ever now the bride of science. Religion to me is science, and science is religion. In that deeply-felt truth lies the secret of my intense devotion to the reading of God's natural works. It is reading Him. His will — His intelligence ; and this again is learning to obey and to follow (to the best of our power) that will! For he who reads, who interprets the Divinity with a true and simple heart, then obeys and submits in acts and feelings as by an impupulse and instinct. He can't help doing so. At least, it appears so to me.“

His will — His intelligence; and this again is learning to obey and to follow (to the best of our power) that will!
