Sir Hudibras, His Passing Worth

...

In Mathematicks he was greater
Than Tycho Brahe, or Ezra Pater:
For he by Geometrick scale
Could take the size of Pots of Ale;
Resolve by Signes and Tangents straight,
If Bread or Butter wanted weight;
And wisely tell what hour o'th day
The Clock does strike, by Algebra.
...

Samuel Butler (1612-1680)
