From Gerald Weinberg, The Psychology of Computer Programming Silver Anniversary Edition, Dorset House, New York, 1998, quoted by Laurie Williams:
"The human eye has an almost infinite capacity for not seeing what it does not want to see.... Programmers, if left to their own devices, will ignore the most glaring errors in their output - errors that anyone else can see in an instant."
