I am minded to the following phrase:
'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'
simple but quite profound when thought about in detail... I have no idea who first came up with it.

Post subject: About optimization
I recently read an excellent quote on program optimization, so decided to share it here in absence of my own original thoughts:
"We should forget about small efficiencies, say about 97% of the time: premature optimization is the root of all evil. Yet we should not pass up our opportunities in that critical 3%. A good programmer will not be lulled into complacency by such reasoning, he will be wise to look carefully at the critical code; but only after that code has been identified" - Donald Knuth
