George Washington was a programmer

Whenever one person is found adequate to the discharge of a duty by
close application thereto, it is worse execute by two persons and
scarcely done at all if three or more are employed therein.
-- George Washington, 1732-1799

And as it applies to programming:

-- F. Brooks, "The Mythical Man-Month"
