\item "imagine a graph, rather than a single path" -- Ralf Hinze
\item "first solve a more general problem, then extract the interesting bits and pieces by transforming the general program into more specialised ones" -- Ralf Hinze
\item solve atomic parts of general problems and combine them into greater solution
