“Agile is dead.” People keep saying that. But then they say, “We’re just kidding.” They meant the way YOU do Agile is dead. And stupid.

Tests won’t make your software correct
Automated tests are immensely useful. Once you’ve started writing tests and seen their value, the idea of writing software without them becomes unimaginable. But as with any technique, you need to understand its limitations. When it comes to automated testing—unit tests, BDD, end-to-end tests—it’s tempting to think that if your tests pass, your software is correct. But tests don’t, tests can’t tell you that your software is correct. Let’s see why.

Inheritance is a hammer. Eliminating code duplication is not a nail. – The Useless Dev blog
It's a daily occurrence when adding features to a system - we currently have functionality X implemented, but now we also need functionality X', which is just slightly different.
