Quite the tale

tea box quote-a knights tale

This last week I was sipping my way through a box of Sleeptime and recalled that different quotes would appear on the boxes. Low and behold, what did I find? This great one (kinda mentoring related) by a poet who was made into a character in one of my all-time favorite movies.

Can you name the movie?

QUOTE #1:

“Chaucer: I’m a writer.

Wat: A What?

Chaucer: A wha-a what? A writer. I write, with parchment, and ink. Geoffrey Chaucer’s the name, writing’s the game. You’ve never read my book Tales of the Duchess? No? Well, it was allegorical.

Roland: Well, we won’t hold that against you, that’s for every man to decide for himself.”

QUOTE #2:

(The bad guy), “You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?”

(Then the good guys at the end),

“You have been weighed.

You have been measured.

And you have absolutely…

Been found wanting.

Welcome to the New World.

God save you, if it is right that he should do so.”

 

(I will post the movie title with another quote in a day or two.)

Here’s another great line from a movie in my post Bon appetite.
