Frasi Grace Murray Hopper

„The Group started out by trying to design a language for stating procedures, but soon discovered that what was really required was a description of the data and a statement of the relationships between the data sets.“

—  Grace Hopper
Context: We must include in any language with which we hope to describe complex data-processing situations the capability for describing data. We must also include a mechanism for determining the priorities to be applied to the data. These priorities are not fixed and are indicated in many cases by the data. Thus we must have a language and a structure that will take care of the data descriptions and priorities, as well as the operations we wish to perform. If we think seriously about these problems, we find that we cannot work with procedures alone, since they are sequential. We need to define the problem instead of the procedures. The Language Structures Group of the Codasyl Committee has been studying the structure of languages that can be used to describe data-processing problems. The Group started out by trying to design a language for stating procedures, but soon discovered that what was really required was a description of the data and a statement of the relationships between the data sets. The Group has since begun writing an algebra of processes, the background for a theory of data processing. Clearly, we must break away from the sequential and not limit the computers. We must state definitions and provide for priorities and descriptions of data. We must state relationships, not procedures. As quoted in Management and the Computer of the Future (1962) by Sloan School of Management, p. 273

Context: You manage things, you lead people. We went overboard on management and forgot about leadership. It might help if we ran the MBAs out of Washington.

„Please cut off a nanosecond and send it over to me.“

—  Grace Hopper
Context: In total desperation, I called over to the engineering building, and I said, "Please cut off a nanosecond and send it over to me." On demonstrating a billionth of a second of electricity travel with a piece of wire, in an interview on 60 Minutes (24 August 1986)

„A human must turn information into intelligence or knowledge. We've tended to forget that no computer will ever ask a new question.“

—  Grace Hopper

„If they put you down somewhere with nothing to do, go to sleep — you don't know when you'll get any more.“

—  Grace Hopper
Context: There's something you learn in your first boot-camp, or training camp: If they put you down somewhere with nothing to do, go to sleep — you don't know when you'll get any more. Grace Hopper on Late Night with David Letterman (2 October 1986) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-vcErOPofQ

Attributed to Hopper, without source, in The UNIX-HATERS Handbook http://web.mit.edu/~simsong/www/ugh.pdf (1994), edited by Simson Garfinkel, Daniel Weise, and Steven Strassmann , p. 9, this is most commonly attributed to Andrew Tanenbaum, as it appears in his book Computer Networks (1981), p. 168, but has also been attributed to Patricia Seybold and Ken Olsen. The quote goes: "the most damaging phrase in the language is 'we've always done it this way!'". see: http://quoteinvestigator.com/2014/11/27/always-done/

„[The Computer] was the first machine man built that assisted the power of his brain instead of the strength of his arm.“

„It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission.“

—  Grace Hopper
As quoted in the U.S. Navy's Chips Ahoy magazine (July 1986) Variant: If it's a good idea, go ahead and do it. It is much easier to apologize than it is to get permission. As quoted in Built to Learn : The inside story of how Rockwell Collins became a true learning organization (2003) by Cliff Purington, Chris Butler, and Sarah Fister Gale, p. 171
