The Canterbury Tales: The Wife of Bath's Prologue
Now by that lord that called is Seint Jame,
Thou shalt nat bothe, thogh that thou were wood,
Be maister of my body and my good;
That oon thou shalt forgo, maugree thyne yen.
We love no man that taketh kepe or charge
Wher that we goon; we wol ben at oure large.
'Of alle men his wisdom is the hyeste,
That rekketh nevere who hath the world in honde.'
