I want to use the quote in a paper for college about pros and cons in teamwork and don't even know who said it first. Help please?

"If you want something done right, do it yourself."

I don't need wings to fly. I don't need someones permission to touch the sky. Keep your limitations and see who they weigh down, I may not have been born with wings, but I'll find a way and you'll see someday, I don't need you. - Jax

The proverb has a long history beginning with Miles Coverdale in Matrymonye (1541): That whych thou cannest do conueniently thyselfe commytte it not to another.

If you want a thing well done, do it yourself~Charles Spurgeon, John Ploughman's Pictures, p. 33 (1880)

First cited in the U.S. in Poems (1858) by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
