My younger brother spends much of his free time working on his house (go figure?). Anyway, there's an old adage he quotes which can be applied to doing testing as one goes along:
 
Measure Once - Cut Twice.
 
- or -
 
Measure Twice - Cut Once.

 
The irreversability of the cutting in the physical world may, perhaps, be related to the brown stains on ones reputation when their buggy application falls apart because ego precluded testing one's own code.
 
Another somewhat wise saying (am I going to get a reputation for this?):
 
"If you can't find the time to do it right the first time . . . how are you going to find the time to do it again?"
