Friday Fun – Engineering Quotes
Today we thought we’d have some fun with quotes
“To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the
glass is half empty.
To the engineer, the glass is twice as big
as it needs to be.”
“The most important thing is to keep the most important thing the most important thing.
From the book “Foundation design” by Coduto, Donald P.
“Death and taxes are unsolved engineering projects.”
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler”
“Engineering is the art of doing with one dollar which any bungler can do with two after a fashion.”
AM Wellington (1887)
“Fast, Good, Inexpensive”
Our Boss, Andy Fewtrell ;o)
My favourite is:
“A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.“
We hope this brightened up your Friday. If you have any others to share, please feel free to post them on our Facebook page.
