One that I love, although I got a different version first time: "The first 90 percent of the code accounts for the first 90 percent of the development time. The remaining 10 percent of the code accounts for the other 90 percent of the development time." óTom Cargill, Bell Labs I originally had this told to me with the substiturion of "job" for "code" hence making it more universally applicable. Which it is.
