    The saying has been attributed most often to Ben Franklin, who is also credited with having said, "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

    More recent variations, along with their attributions, include:

    “Fail to plan, plan to fail.” Carl W. Buechner

    “Failures don't plan to fail; they fail to plan.” Harvey MacKay

    "He who fails to plan is planning to fail." Winston Churchill (during WW II)
