Rasmus Lerdorf
I don't know how to stop it, there was never any intent to write a programming language [...] I have absolutely no idea how to write a programming language, I just kept adding the next logical step on the way.
Lerdorf quotes
PHP is rarely the bottleneck.
Lerdorf
PHP is about as exciting as your toothbrush. You use it every day, it does the job, it is a simple tool, so what? Who would want to read about toothbrushes?




Lerdorf Rasmus quotes
I actually hate programming, but I love solving problems.
Lerdorf Rasmus
I do care about memory leaks but I still don't find programming enjoyable.
Rasmus Lerdorf quotes
I really don't like programming. I built this tool to program less so that I could just reuse code.
Rasmus Lerdorf
Ugly problems often require ugly solutions. Solving an ugly problem in a pure manner is bloody hard.
Lerdorf Rasmus quotes
We have things like protected properties. We have abstract methods. We have all this stuff that your computer science teacher told you you should be using. I don't care about this crap at all.
Lerdorf
For all the folks getting excited about my quotes. Here is another - Yes, I am a terrible coder, but I am probably still better than you :)
Lerdorf Rasmus
I'm not a real programmer. I throw together things until it works then I move on. The real programmers will say "Yeah it works but you're leaking memory everywhere. Perhaps we should fix that." Iíll just restart Apache every 10 requests.
Rasmus Lerdorf
I did not develop the PHP we know today. Dozens, if not hundreds of people, developed PHP. I was simply the first developer.




Rasmus Lerdorf quotes
I was really, really bad at writing parsers. I still am really bad at writing parsers.
Rasmus Lerdorf
There are people who actually like programming. I don't understand why they like programming.
