|The superfluous is very necessary.|
|A kiss is a course of procedure, cunningly devised, for the mutual|
stoppage of speech at a moment when words are superfluous.
A superfluous element of a source program included so the
programmer can remember what the hell it was he was doing
six months later. Only the weak-minded need them, according
to those who think they aren't.
|Unless hours were cups of sack, and minutes capons, and clocks the tongues|
of bawds, and dials the signs of leaping houses, and the blessed sun himself
a fair, hot wench in flame-colored taffeta, I see no reason why thou shouldst
be so superfluous to demand the time of the day. I wasted time and now doth
time waste me.
-- William Shakespeare
