Find the common phrase that is represented by the following computer program code. Some amount of computer programming knowledge will help, as certain programming conventions are used. However, it may be solved without, as it is written in a very high-level (i.e., human-like) language.

Birth
For Each Thing
{
If itsPercentQuality = 100
Then itsPrice = 0
}
Death

Answer:

"The best things in life are free."

Everything between "Birth" and "Death" is "Life." Within "Life," the program is scanning the quality of each "Thing." If the quality is 100%, then it is one of "the best things in life," and its price is set to 0, or "free."
