Book-filter: Used to have a list of quotes by someone named "Weinberg". Predates Gerald Weinberg but many of he quotes were computer-related and from the '60s! Who is Weinberg?

I had a DOS-based computer program was called quote.exe or quoter.exe (or maybe *.com) that I could run to give a "quote of the day". I ran it from my autoexec.bat for entertainment. The program had an accompanying text file from which it pulled quotes. That's background.
Many of the quotes were computer-related and were by a fellow named "Weinberg", if I recall correctly. I enjoyed the quotes so much that I found, and bought, the book. Sections of the book that I recall related to how things changed with regards to programming in a large organization.
I loaned out the book and never got it back, however, am now using the mind of the hive to try and find the book again.
All I remember is the "Weinberg" (or Weinberger?) name, or similar. Red cover. Computer-related. Maybe from the early 1960s.
