Code Te Ching - Verse 58

The ten thousand things are presented by Code.
Code is, and is presented by, abstraction.
Abstraction is presented by code.

Code helps the ten thousand things by entailing understanding.
abstraction helps understanding by entailing structure.
code helps abstraction by giving definition.
comments help code by giving direction.

Like the mountain directs the storm without restraining the sun,
Comments direct the coder without restraining the code.
