„I must have the gentleman to haul and draw with the mariner, and the mariner with the gentleman.“

—  Francis Drake English sea captain, privateer, navigator, slaver, and politician of the Elizabethan era 1540 - 1596

Speech to his crew off of Puerto San Julian, Argentina, prior to entering the Strait of Magellan (May 1578)
Contexto: For by the life of God, it doth even take my wits from me to think on it. Here is such controversy between the sailors and gentlemen, and such stomaching between the gentlemen and sailors, it doth make me mad to hear it. But, my masters, I must have it left. For I must have the gentleman to haul and draw with the mariner, and the mariner with the gentleman. What! let us show ourselves to be of a company and let us not give occasion to the enemy to rejoice at our decay and overthrow. I would know him that would refuse to set his hand to a rope, but I know there is not any such here...
