„Go To statement considered harmful.“

—  Niklaus Wirth
Often attributed to Edsger Wybe Dijkstra, but it was the title to a letter in CACM 11, 3 (March, 1968). However The original title of " A Case against the GO TO Statement http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/EWD/transcriptions/EWD02xx/EWD215.html" (EWD215, PDF here http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/EWD/ewd02xx/EWD215.PDF, ACM has its own copy http://www.acm.org/classics/oct95 online) was changed by the editor Niklaus Wirth, to speed up publication. Dijkstra explains it himself in EWD1308 http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/EWD/transcriptions/EWD13xx/EWD1308.html (see near the end of the article).

„Software gets slower faster than hardware gets faster.“

—  Niklaus Wirth
