Perldoc Perlmint

Ive been programming in perl for a while but never come across something like this until one day going through perldoc perlmint.
"From a thief you should learn: (1) to work at night;
(2) if one cannot gain what one wants in one night to
try again the next night; (3) to love one's coworkers
just as thieves love each other; (4) to be willing to
risk one's life even for a little thing; (5) not to
attach too much value to things even though one has
risked one's life for them - just as a thief will resell
a stolen article for a fraction of its real value;
(6) to withstand all kinds of beatings and tortures
but to remain what you are; and (7) to believe your
work is worthwhile and not be willing to change it."

-- Rabbi Dov Baer, Maggid of Mezeritch
