If you want to lose weight, you need to be able to actually measure your weight. Codebases with inadequate tests can't do this accurately, so they don't even know what changes to their diet/development process help.



Also, the quote does not say that you have to avoid testing, it says that trying to improve software quality by increasing the amount of testing does not make much sense.

That's not true. There are multiple ways to track the progress of losing weight, starting from simple "look at the mirror" ending with fat percent measure.
