Glenn Vanderburg, in the Prag Prog's "No Fluff Just Stuff: 2006
Anthology":

"For most systems, you get much more performance benefit from good
architecture than you do from fast code. That's a big part of the
reason that typical Rails applications are at least as fast as their
J2EE counterparts, even though Java typically benchmarks as about ten
times faster than Ruby."
