Geoffrey Chaucer

 

Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1342-1400)

“Fields have their eyes, and forests have their ears.
It’s well to be upon one’s guard, I mean,
Since all day long we meet the unforseen.”

  • The Canterbury Tales (The Knight’s Tale) by Geoffrey Chaucer, translated to modern English by Nevill Coghill (Penguin Classics, 2003).
