Geoffrey Chaucer Quotes

Geoffrey Chaucer The life so short, the crafts so long to learn.

People can die of mere imagination.

The greatest scholars are not usually the wisest people.

The guilty think all talk is of themselves.

Women desire six things: They want their husbands to be brave, wise, rich, generous, obedient to wife, and lively in bed.

Geoffrey ChaucerTime and tide wait for no man.

Forbid us something, and that thing we desire.

And gladly wolde he lerne, and gladly teche.

First he wrought, and afterward he taught.

Nowher so bisy a man as he ther nas, And yet he semed bisier than he was.

 

The greatest scholars are not usually the wisest people. Geoffrey Chaucer
