Not one to start religious wars, but it is amazing what you find in
the Bible. Howabout:
"So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall
not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please,
and it shall prosper _in_the_thing_ whereto I sent it."
-- Isaiah 55:11 (King James version)
If God says he doesn't use C++ for OOP when he wants things to
work, I'll take His word for it. (I ran into this because a partial
quote was in a hymn at chuch a few weeks back. I had to run down the
reference. I even thought about using it as a .sig, but figured most
people wouldn't understand it.)
