Help.
I am surrounded by academic types who use this quote [I shall remain humble as long as I am respected but I shall fight to retain my dignity] and attribute it to 'Heywood'. Although, they do not know which 'Heywood'...John or Thomas or ??? I would like to know if this is a real quote or if it has gone through revisions and is now bastardized (e.g. Would yee both eat your cake and have your cake? = You can't have your cake and eat it too.)
- John Heywood (1497? - 1580)
Proverbes. Part i. Chap. ix. 1546

...or simply misquoted to 'Heywood'.

Thank you in advance for any insight you may bring on the matter.
