rueful quotes- 5 of
I haven't strength of mind not to need a career.
O Ye that put your trust and confidence
In worldly joy and frail prosperity,
Was I not born of old worthy lineage?
Was not my mother queen, my father king?
Where are our castles now, where are our towers?
If worship have kept me, I had not gone.
If wit might have me saved, I needed not fear.
