Teamwork: divide the task, multiply the success.

From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst:
  May 18 When Grant was appointed head of all 860,000 Union troops in 1864, he devised a plan to attack all Confederate forces simultaneously: the Army of the Potomac would attack Lee in Virginia without let-up; Sherman would slash eastward through Georgia to the sea; Banks would attack northward through Mobile joining with Sherman in the Deep South. Lincoln had finally found his man, someone to execute a strategy he knew could not fail. Happily he observed, ‘those not skinning can hold a leg.’   ‘There is no “I” in “teamwork.”’ - Anonymous
