„Don't look back — something might be gaining on you.“

—  Satchel Paige American baseball player and coach; Negro Leagues 1906 - 1982

"How to Stay Young" Collier's Magazine (13 June 1953)
Contexto: Avoid fried meats which angry up the blood.
If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts.
Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move.
Go very light on the vices, such as carrying on in society— the social ramble ain't restful.
Avoid running at all times.
And don't look back— something might be gaining on you.

„I think in other things that I've done, I can look back and see: "This idea developed from something else."“

—  Leslie Lamport American computer scientist 1941

Sometimes it would lead back to a previous idea of mine, very often it would lead to something somebody else had done. But the Bakery algorithm just seemed to come out of thin air to me. There was nothing like it that preceded it, so perhaps that's why I'm proudest of it.
