Geoffrey Chaucer

Geoffrey Chaucer (English poet, 1342-1400 CE)

“This world is but a thoroughfare of woe
And we are pilgrims passing to and fro.
Death is the end of every worldly sore.”

  • From Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales (The Knight’s Tale), translated by Neville Coghill (Penguin Classics, 2003).
