" Friendship is a sheltering tree "

Coleridge

Quote Hunt

February 25th, 2010

Anyone know the author of this quote:

“You can accomplish anything if you are willing to take credit for nothing.”

No clues on looking through the web. Could it be Gandhi?

  1. Found it, slightly re-worded. I had this on a small file of “inspiration quotes” in the back of a journal, and knew it sounded familiar.
    Here you ho.

    “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.”
    -Harry S Truman

  2. Maebius – I am so impressed (despite typo!) Fantastic – thank you! An interesting detail in the way it has morphed: Truman makes a reasonable statement: “It is amazing what you can accomplish”. It then gets a dose of New Age hubris and becomes: “You can accomplish anything’. We might like that idea with our fantasies of omnipotence, but in my book you can accomplish amazing things but not ‘anything’ (like build Rome in a day for example?)!
