An Immortal Quotation

In a recent reddit thread on Perl as living or dead:
...the Lispers, Smalltalkers and Haskellers have been trying to convince everyone that language is everything: but the fact of the matter is, community is everything and the Perl community is the biggest and most badass one there is.

Carter's compass: I know I'm on the right track when by deleting something, I'm adding functionality

    True ... very true. It reminded me of when I read a book on compilers a few ages ago. Afterwards, I created my own language and wrote the compiler for it. It was the PERFECT LANGUAGE

    Unfortunately, I couldn't convince others to try it, and I wasn't forward-thinking enough to make good bindings to the libraries of other languages. So poor old Genial died not long after being born...... </rose-colored-glasses-mode>
