“Million-dollar ideas are a dime a dozen”

A motivational quote was posted on Twitter on June 13, 2010:

“Million dollar ideas are a dime a dozen. The determination to see the idea through is what’s priceless. -Robert Dieffenbach”

The quote has been very popular on Twitter, although it’s not known who Robert Dieffenbach is or any other circumstances of the quotation. A similar quotation was posted on Google Groups on November 9, 1999:

“Million dollar ideas are a dime a dozen. The real rewards go to those who make things happen even when it turns out to be hard work and cost money.”


5 January 1965, The Evening Times (Trenton, NJ), “Atlantic City: Oceans of Ideas” by the Associated Press, pg. 13, col. 1:
Million dollar ideas for improving Atlantic City are a dime a dozen in this resort.
