Geoffrey Chaucer

Geoffrey Chaucer (1342-1400 CE)

“Age has a great advantage over youth
In wisdom and by custom, that’s the truth.
The old may be out-run but not out-reasoned.”

  • From The Canterbury Tales (The Knight’s Tale) by Geoffrey Chaucer, translated into modern English by Nevill Coghill (Penguin Classics edition, 1977).
