Why program?

via Ta Daa! 4.0:

I love programming. I enjoy the challenge to not only make a working program but do so with style. Programming is like poetry. It conveys a message, not only to the computer, but to those who modify and use your program. With a program, you build your own world with your own rules. You create your world according to your conception of both the problem and the solution. Masterful programmers create worlds with programs that are clear and succinct, much like a poem or essay.

- Programming from the Ground Up, Jonathan Bartlett
