I would be curious as to the date on that.  The version I have is:    (03)

"A thing not worth doing is not worth doing well."
     -- Arden, Bruce W., and Astill, Kenneth N., in "Numerical 
algorithms: origins and applications", Addison-Wesley, 1970    (04)

It led the introduction.  I doubt that it was original with Bruce, but 
he didn't cite a source, and I never found out where he got it from.    (05)
