„"Once more, my gallant boys!" he cried:
"Three times! — you know the fable, —
(I'll make it thirty," muttered he,
"But I will lay the cable!")“

—  John Godfrey Saxe, "How Cyrus Laid the Cable".

„If God spare my life, ere many yeares I wyl cause a boy that driveth the plough to know more of the Scripture, than he doust.“

—  William Tyndale Bible translator and agitator from England 1494 - 1536
Context: I defie the Pope and all his lawes. If God spare my life, ere many yeares I wyl cause a boy that driveth the plough to know more of the Scripture, than he doust. As quoted in the Actes and Monuments of these Latter and Perillous Days, touching Matters of the Church (Foxe's Book of Martyrs) by John Foxe; variant: I will cause a boy that driveth the plough shall know more of the scripture than thou doest.
