Do & Done becomes Get & Gotten…


“If You Always Do What You’ve Always Done, You Always Get What You’ve Always Gotten.”

Unknown but invariably accredited to (Quote Investigator, 2016):

  • Henry Ford (?, Car Maker);
  • Jessie Potter (1981, Educator and counsellor on family relationships and human sexuality);
  • Dayle K. Maloney (1984, In a seminar ‘Secers of Selling);
  • Cathy Bolger (1984, Counsellor);
  • Dan Clark with Michael Gale (1986, In a self-help book);
  • Susan Jeffers (1988, Written in her book)
  • Jackie “Moms” Mabley (1993, Comedian); and/or
  • Tony Robbins (?, NLP Guru).
  • Some sources even suggest Albert Einstein and Mark Twain.

Quote Investigator provides a few alternatives and the provenance of the phrase.
