“A consultant is someone who saves his client almost enough to pay his fee”

"A consultant is someone who saves his client almost enough to pay his fee” is a jocular saying that has been attributed to Arnold H. Glasgow, an American psychiatrist, since at least 1998. The saying means that hiring a consultant should be cost effective, but often is not.

How Does a Consultant Differ from an Attorney?
Every day I get some quote of the day.  These quotes are often promoted as funny, intelligent or whatever.  Today I received a quote that was tagged as a, funny quote from Arnold H. Glasgow

“A consultant is someone who saves his client almost enough to pay his fee.”

The funny thing is that I don’t think of the quote as funny.
