“the tools we are trying to use and the language or notation
we are using to express or record our thoughts are the major
factors determining what we can think or express at all!”
-- Edsger W. Dykstra
ACM Turing Award Lecture, 1972
"Language shapes the way we think and determines
what we can think about."
"Those who doubt the importance of a convenient notation
should try writing a LISP interpreter in COBOL or doing
long division with Roman numerals."
