Perl Philosophy

A lovely little Wikipedia stub teaches us, as in programming, as in life:

There is more than one way to do it (TIMTOWTDI, usually pronounced “Tim Toady”) is a Perl motto. The language was designed with this idea in mind, so that it “doesn’t try to tell the programmer how to program.”

I find it humorous that the Python language has the exact opposite motto; that is, there is only one correct, obvious way to do things. I’m with Perl.
