  • "'I would not give a fig for all the jests in your budget.' 'Well enough yet,' quoth Sancho, 'and a fig for you too, if you go to that. Adad! should I take thee for a fig, I might be sure of a ripe one, your fig is rotten ripe, forsooth; say no more: if sixty is the game, you are a peep-out.'"

    Don Quixote, by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
