I get paid for code that works, not for tests ... - Kent Beck

This quote by Kent Beck is just popping up all around articles I have read these days. Want to keep it  here.
I get paid for code that works, not for tests, so my philosophy is to test as little as possible to reach a given level of confidence (I suspect this level of confidence is high compared to industry standards, but that could just be hubris). If I don't typically make a kind of mistake (like setting the wrong variables in a constructor), I don't test for it
