These are my favourite movie quotes, which I could rattle off, anytime:
1. “Adaptation, improvization; your weakness is not your technique.”
2. “I did not choose. I was born, and I am.”
3. “A sad commentary in and of itself.”
As a software developer I’m just waiting for the chance to say the first one during peer review, but so far, not yet. Or perhaps I keep forgetting to do so because my subconscious isn’t allowing me to look stupid. There were, however, a few occasions when I had the opportunity to say the second one – without exception, they were during the “death march” stage of projects in which my colleague and I would miserably ask ourselves how we ended up in the programming profession.
What are your favourite movie quotes, and have you ever used them in real life?
