The American philosopher/writer/publisher Elbert Hubbard wrote: "If you want something done, ask a busy man, for the other kind has no time."

It has been revised to reflect current fashion by changing "man" to "person."

Famous as the founder of the Roycroft artisans community in East Aurora, New York. Hubbard, and his wife Alice, perished at sea when German submarines torpedoed the ocean liner, RMS Lusitania, off the Irish coast on may 7, 1915.
