Then she seyde all with wepynge chere, "A, Sir Launcelot, how youre grete doynge ys chonged sytthyn thys day in the morne!"
"Damesell, why sey ye so?"
"Sir, I say you sothe," seyde the damesell, "for ye were thys day in the morne the best knyght of the worlde; but who sholde sey so now, he sholde be a lyer, for there ys now one bettir than ye be." (501.24-30)
"A, Launcelot," seyde she, "as longe as ye were knyght of erthly knyghthode ye were the most mervayloust man of the worlde, and moste adventurest."
"Now," seyde the lady, "sitthen ye be sette amonge the knyghtis of hevynly adventures, if aventure falle [the contrary at that turnement,] have ye no mervayle; for that turnamente yestirday was but a tokenynge of Oure Lorde." (537.7-13)
