If I had a hammer...

I'm sure that pretty much every experienced developer out there has heard the proverb:

  • If the only tool you have is a hammer, then everything's a nail.

Well, I've heard a few variations on the theme and so I've decided to start collecting them...

  • Sometimes it's just a nail, and all you need is a hammer.

  • Don't ignore your hammer just because you heard someone else hit their thumb with theirs.

  • When you're in the market for a new tool, make sure you're not buying yet another hammer.

  • You can enhance the usefulness of your hammer by adding a chisel.

  • A Rotary Electro-pneumatic hammer delivering 4600 hammer blows a minute is still just a hammer.

Anyone got any more?
