The Canterbury Tales: General Prologue & Frame Story
[. . .] Whan it comth to my lot,
By God, I shal hym quiten every grot.
(Friar's Prologue 77 – 78)
For he to vertue listeth nat entende;
But for to pleye at dees, and to despende
And lese al that he hath is his usage.
(Squire's Tale / Franklin's Interruption 689 - 691)
