Stroustrup began developing C++ in 1978 (then called "C with Classes"), and, in his own words, "invented C++, wrote its early definitions, and produced its first implementation... chose and formulated the design criteria for C++, designed all its major facilities, and was responsible for the processing of extension proposals in the C++ standards committee." Stroustrup also wrote a textbook for the language, The C++ Programming Language.

    C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot; C++ makes it harder - but when you do it blows your whole leg off
    There are only two kinds of languages: the ones people complain about and the ones nobody uses
    The standard library saves programmers from having to reinvent the wheel
