"[Naming functions is] an unforgiving and humbling activity. And the issue is almost always the same. The reason you can’t find a good name is because you don’t really understand with complete and ultimate clarity what the function does.

"If the functional zealot tells you your side effects destroy the formal analysis, explain to him that monads rhymes with gonads which are quite useful."
