    Have you tried looking for the origin of the phrase? If yes, then where? – Olga Oct 16 '12 at 13:15
  • The phrase is attributed to Frederick William I of Prussia and, allegedly, refers to the fact that soldiers need to be fed, as otherwise they will be thinking about food, not war. – Aleks G Oct 16 '12 at 14:56

    I'll slightly correct the sentence. Not exactly "по расписанию" but "по распорядку". Because of special term "распорядок" that means almost the same as "расписание" but mostly used in military language (not even military but we speak about this exact case). – user571 Nov 7 '12 at 11:45

    First time I heard this proverb was while I was watching a film about World War II "В бой идут одни старики" about group of young soviet pilots. I beleive for many people this is the "origin" of the proverb. – Artemix Nov 8 '12 at 8:10

Эту фразу произнес великий русский актер Леонид Броневой в фильме "Тот самый Мюнхгаузен". Броневой играл в этом прекрасном фильме роль герцога — курфюрста Ганновера.

  • This may be true, however this doesn't seem to correlate to any historical records. – Aleks G Nov 8 '12 at 20:42
  • @AleksG, I agree, but still this answer is valuable, since actually many of native speakers are aware of this quote mainly because of this movie. – shabunc Nov 9 '12 at 8:32
