2nd Quote of the day, also from SICP

Why can't a day have two quotes?

From the Foreward of "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs":

"The source of the exhilaration associated with computer programming is the continual unfolding within the mind and on the computer of mechanisms expressed as programs and the explosion of perception they generate. If art interprets our dreams, the computer executes them in the guise of programs!"

- Alan J. Perlis
