A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you’re talking real money.

Everett Dirksen (1896-1969) American politician

Frequently attributed to Dirksen, but not found in his writings or speeches. An anonymous reference is made in "Topics of the Times," New York Times (10 Jan 1938): "Well, now, about this new budget. It's a billion here and a billion there, and by and by it begins to mount up into money."
