1) It is better to seek forgiveness than to ask permission. (Don't check to see if you can do something before trying to do it, because the answer might change under you.)
2) Laziness is a virtue. (Delay calculating values until you actually need the values)
3) Adding another layer of indirection solves everything. (I don't really have a pithy explanation of this, it's just true.)
4) Just because something is impossible doesn't mean it can't happen.
Corollary: Impossible behavior is your runtime screaming at you to pay attention. Ignore or work around it at your peril.

Is this worth expanding on? Am I just being overly pretentious? Should I go into more detail about situations that gave rise to these?
