I collected a bunch of "adages" for my (beginning and otherwise)  
programming students to read and respond to.  It includes some brief  
quotes taken from SWE books (and from Descartes and Locke), and  
several of the ACM's regrettably-discontinued Classic Papers, and the  
first chapter of Brooks's _The Mythical Man-Month_, and Miller's _The  
Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two_, and a bunch of on-line  
articles about various SWE issues.  It also includes a link to  
Richard Pattis's extensive list of quotations on software.
