>when you write a good program you get the same feeling of achievement you'd get from making something like a piece of pottery or a house

I get the same feeling writing good software now as I did when I built cool stuff with Legos and Knex when I was in younger.

Same here about the LEGO. And I get the same feeling looking at a piece of good source code I do looking at the sheet music to a great song. Actually all three systems can have a kind of beauty to them, visually, in their patterns and they can either ring right or ring wrong.

Play with some set of Legos long enough, and you're bound to come up with something cool.
