2:Learning is hard work, but everything you learn is yours and will make subsequent learning easier.

   ~ Marijn Haverbeke, Eloquent Javascript,
4:Programming, it turns out, is hard. The fundamental rules are typically simple and cleaR But programs built on top of these rules tend to become complex enough to introduce their own rules and complexity. You're building your own maze, in a way, and you might just get lost in it.
   ~ Marijn Haverbeke,
5:Below the surface of the machine, the program moves. Without effort, it expands and contracts. In great harmony, electrons scatter and regroup. The forms on the monitor are but ripples on the water. The essence stays invisibly below.

1:The art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity. ~ Marijn Haverbeke
2:Higher-order functions allow us to abstract over actions, not just values. ~ Marijn Haverbeke
3:You’re building your own maze, in a way, and you might just get lost in it. ~ Marijn Haverbeke
4:The art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity.
   ~ Marijn Haverbeke, Eloquent JavaScript,
5:Learning is hard work, but everything you learn is yours and will make subsequent learning easier. ~ Marijn Haverbeke
6:How difficult it is to find a good name for a function is a good indication of how clear a concept it is that ~ Marijn Haverbeke
7:In the happy land of elegant code and pretty rainbows, there lives a spoil-sport monster called inefficiency. ~ Marijn Haverbeke
8:Functions that create values are easier to combine in new ways than functions that directly perform side effects ~ Marijn Haverbeke
9:It has to become second nature, for a programmer, to notice when a concept is begging to be abstracted into a new word. ~ Marijn Haverbeke
10:Learning is hard work, but everything you learn is yours and will make subsequent learning easier.
   ~ Marijn Haverbeke, Eloquent Javascript,
11:The programmer who refuses to keep exploring will surely stagnate, forget his joy, lose the will to program (and become a manager). ~ Marijn Haverbeke
12:How difficult it is to find a good name for a function is a good indication of how clear a concept it is that
   ~ Marijn Haverbeke, Eloquent Javascript,
13:You should imagine variables as tentacles, rather than boxes. They do not contain values; they grasp them—two variables can refer to the same value. ~ Marijn Haverbeke
14:It also makes the program more difficult to change because prose tends to be more tightly interconnected than code. This style is called literate programming. The ~ Marijn Haverbeke
15:a detailed low-level one for complex situations and a simple high-level one for routine use. The second can usually be built easily using the tools provided by the first. In ~ Marijn Haverbeke
16:most obvious application of functions is defining new vocabulary. Creating new words in regular, human-language prose is usually bad style. But in programming, it is indispensable. ~ Marijn Haverbeke
17:It helps omit uninteresting details, provides convenient building blocks (such as while and console.log), allows you to define your own building blocks (such as sum and range), and makes those blocks easy to compose. ~ Marijn Haverbeke
18:The computer programmer is a creator of universes for which he alone is responsible. Universes of virtually unlimited complexity can be created in the form of computer programs. — Joseph Weizenbaum, Computer Power and Human Reason ~ Marijn Haverbeke
19:The best way to learn the value of good interface design is to use lots of interfaces — some good, some bad. Experience will teach you what works and what doesn’t. Never assume that a painful interface is “just the way it is.” Fix it, or wrap it in ~ Marijn Haverbeke
20:Below the surface of the machine, the program moves. Without effort, it expands and contracts. In great harmony, electrons scatter and regroup. The forms on the monitor are but ripples on the water. The essence stays invisibly below. —Master Yuan-Ma, The Book of Programming ~ Marijn Haverbeke

   ~ Marijn Haverbeke, Eloquent Javascript, Master Yuan-Ma, The Book of Programming,
24:The main thing I want to show in this chapter is that there is no magic involved in building your own language. I’ve often felt that some human inventions were so immensely clever and complicated that I’d never be able to understand them. But with a little reading and tinkering, such things often turn out to be quite mundane. ~ Marijn Haverbeke
