Quote #1

JOAN: "The blessed saints Catherine and Margaret, […] speak to me every day." (1.72)

This is the first time we hear that Joan has voices in her head.

Quote #2

JOAN: "I hear voices telling me what to do. They come from God."
ROBERT: "They come from your imagination."
JOAN: "Of course. That is how the messages of God come to us." (1.37-1.39)

Joan believes that her own ideas have divine origin. Does that make her crazy or a genius?

Quote #3

JOAN: "I love church; but the English will not yield to prayers: they understand nothing but hard knocks and slashes." (3.61)

Even though Joan has great faith in her divine voices, she still seems to have a firm grasp on the practical side of things.
