I'm looking for an aphorism communicating the thought that "this works, but we can do better". Some high-falutin language like Shakespeare or Blake would be ideal.
- Not bad.
However, let me recompose some of Yogi Berra's:
- Love is the most important thing, but your project/application is pretty good too.
- Little league projects are great, because it keeps engineers/programmers like you off the main concourse.
- You don't have to swing hard to hit a home run. Your application could just make it, with the right timing.
a'la Edgar Allen Poe:
- Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary. Nice app BTW.
- Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality after deployment.
- Science has not yet taught us if mediocrity is or is not the normality of intelligence.
- I have great faith in tools like these. My lack of confidence in them, I call it.
- After all most apps, my friend, are simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and creativity.
- Never mistake an acceptance as excellence.
- You do not have to like it just because it works.
- Happiness in intelligent people are the rarest thing I know. You seem pretty happy with your app.
- No app named horrid, has ever won the Nobel peace prize. We'll deploy it but expect lots of rotten eggs thrown at it.
- The world was created in six days, so was your app. It's good enough.
- From the abundance of your heart, your app manifests.
Not quite Shakespearean, but you could say
<product>is good as it is, there is still room for improvement.
If "T'ain't broke don't fix it" be not your cry, go with the best, give it (us?) a try.
"To paraphrase Mark Twain, it's just a lightning bug and not lightning."
Don't rest until you do your best.
Good enough isn't.
