„Go To statement considered harmful.“

—  Niklaus Wirth Swiss computer scientist 1934

Often attributed to Edsger Wybe Dijkstra, but it was the title to a letter in CACM 11, 3 (March, 1968). However The original title of " A Case against the GO TO Statement http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/EWD/transcriptions/EWD02xx/EWD215.html" (EWD215, PDF here http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/EWD/ewd02xx/EWD215.PDF, ACM has its own copy http://www.acm.org/classics/oct95 online) was changed by the editor Niklaus Wirth, to speed up publication. Dijkstra explains it himself in EWD1308 http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/EWD/transcriptions/EWD13xx/EWD1308.html (see near the end of the article).

„My master Attalus used to say: "Evil herself drinks the largest portion of her own poison." The poison which serpents carry for the destruction of others, and secrete without harm to themselves, is not like this poison; for this sort is ruinous to the possessor.“

—  Seneca the Younger Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman, and dramatist -4 - 65 v.Chr

Quemadmodum Attalus noster dicere solebat, 'malitia ipsa maximam partem veneni sui bibit'.
Illud venenum quod serpentes in alienam perniciem proferunt, sine sua continent, non est huic simile: hoc habentibus pessimum est.

Kontext: I've never really been into flags of any kind, cause flags can bring people together, but they always bring people together against other people, and I don't really consider myself to be a patriot in the sense that I say, 'okay, this is my nation,' I consider myself to be a child of this whole planet.

„Holding anger is a poison… It eats you from inside… We think that by hating someone we hurt them… But hatred is a curved blade… and the harm we do to others… we also do to ourselves.“

—  Mitch Albom, buch The Five People You Meet in Heaven

Variante: Holding anger is a poison. It eats you from inside. We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves.

„The publicity I have been getting, a good deal of which is untrue, and the rest of it ill considered, has done me more harm than good.“

—  George S. Patton United States Army general 1885 - 1945

Letter to Frederick Ayers (5 May 1943), published in The Patton Papers 1940-1945 (1996) edited by Martin Blumenson, p. 242
Kontext: The publicity I have been getting, a good deal of which is untrue, and the rest of it ill considered, has done me more harm than good. The only way you get on in this profession is to have the reputation of doing what you are told as thoroughly as possible. So far I have been able to accomplish that, and I believe I have gotten quite a reputation from not kicking at peculiar assignments.
