‘fight: I have not yet begun to’

«Я ещё не начал драться», фраза, которую, согласно легенде, произнёс герой Войны за независимость Джон Пол Джонс [Jones, John Paul] во время абордажной схватки в ответ на предложение англичан сдаться, когда его корабль получил пробоину. Американцы бросились в атаку и захватили корабль противника, в то время как их собственный пошёл ко дну
