埃德斯·迪克斯特拉(Edsger Dijkstra)名言

Teaching to unsuspecting youngsters the effective use of formal methods is one of the joys of life because it is so extremely rewarding.

教给毫无戒心的年轻人,有效地使用正式的方法是生活的乐趣之一,因为它是如此的有价值。

Many mathematicians derive part of their self-esteem by feeling themselves the proud heirs of a long tradition of rational thinking; I am afraid they idealize their cultural ancestors.

许多数学家感到自己是长期理性思维传统的骄傲继承者,从而获得了部分自尊;恐怕他们把自己的文化祖先理想化了。

I mentioned the non-competitive spirit explicitly, because these days, excellence is a fashionable concept. But excellence is a competitive notion, and that is not what we are heading for: we are heading for perfection.

我明确提到了非竞争精神,因为现在,卓越是一个时髦的概念。但卓越是一种竞争理念,而这不是我们的目标:我们正在走向完美。

埃德斯·迪克斯特拉

Why has elegance found so little following? That is the reality of it. Elegance has the disadvantage, if that's what it is, that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it.

为什么优雅很少有追随者?这就是现实。优雅也有缺点,如果真是这样的话,那就是需要努力工作才能实现它,需要良好的教育才能欣赏它。

The students that, like the wild animal being prepared for its tricks in the circus called 'life', expects only training as sketched above, will be severely disappointed: by his standards he will learn next to nothing.

学生们,就像野生动物在马戏团里准备的“生命”一样,只希望能像上面所描绘的那样训练,他们会非常失望:按照他的标准,他将一无所获地学习。

埃德斯·迪克斯特拉

If 10 years from now, when you are doing something quick and dirty, you suddenly visualize that I am looking over your shoulders and say to yourself: 'Dijkstra would not have liked this', well that would be enough immortality for me.

如果10年后,当你做一件又快又脏的事情时,你突然想到我正看着你的肩膀,对自己说:‘Dijkstra不会喜欢这个’,那对我来说就足够不朽了。

埃德斯·迪克斯特拉

Don't compete with me: firstly, I have more experience, and secondly, I have chosen the weapons.

别跟我比了:第一,我经验比较丰富,第二,我选择了武器。

埃德斯·迪克斯特拉

Perfecting oneself is as much unlearning as it is learning.

完善自己和学习一样是忘却。
