"We're really serious about reinventing everything that needs reinventing." — Larry Wall (2000).
"The Perl 6 design process is about keeping what works in Perl 5, fixing what doesn't, and adding what's missing.

These modifications, enhancements, and innovations will work together to make the future Perl even more insanely great...." — Damian Conway (2003).
"Perl 6 and Parrot have some extremely ambitious goals, and it’s my belief that the value and impact of our hard work and patience is going to play out for a very long time — that is, over at least many decades." — Patrick Michaud (2006).
