that I am not very wise - and yet I think I am - but you seem to

"There is something more than I can understand in this," he said at
length. "Your mouth is full of subtleties, and the devil has led you very
far astray; but the devil is only a very weak spirit before God's truth, and
all his subtleties vanish at a word of true honour, like darkness at morning.
Listen to me once more. I learned long ago that a gentleman should
live chivalrously and lovingly to God, and the king, and his lady; and
though I have seen many strange things done, I have still striven to command
my ways upon that rule. It is not only written in all noble histories,
but in every man's heart, if he will take care to read. You speak of food
and wine, and I know very well that hunger is a difficult trial to endure;
but you do not speak of other wants; you say nothing of honour, of faith
to God and other men, of courtesy, of love without reproach. It may be
that I am not very wise - and yet I think I am - but you seem to me like
one who has lost his way and made a great error in life. You are attending Womens MonteBello Parka


to the little wants, and you have totally forgotten the great and only
real ones, like a man who should be doctoring a toothache on the Judgment
Day. For such things as honour and love and faith are not only nobler
than food and drink, but indeed I think that we desire them more, Womens HyBridge Lite Vest


and suffer more sharply for their absence. I speak to you as I think you
will most easily understand me. Are you not, while careful to fill your
belly, disregarding another appetite in your heart, which spoils the
pleasure of your life and keeps you continually wretched?"

perhaps nobler than it had a right to do; but it was a fine face

He went boldly to the door and knocked with an assured hand. On
both previous occasions, he had knocked timidly and with some dread
of attracting notice; but now when he had just discarded the thought of a
burglarious entry, knocking at a door seemed a mighty simple and innocent
proceeding. The sound of his blows echoed through the house with
thin, phantasmal reverberations, as though it were quite empty; but
these had scarcely died away before a measured tread drew near, a
couple of bolts were withdrawn, and one wing was opened broadly, as
though no guile or fear of guile were known to those within. A tall figure
of a man, muscular and spare, but a little bent, confronted Villon. The
head was massive in bulk, but finely sculptured; the nose blunt at the
bottom, but refining upward to where it joined a pair of strong and honest
eyebrows; the mouth and eyes surrounded with delicate markings,
and the whole face based upon a thick white beard, boldly and squarely
trimmed. Seen as it was by the light of a flickering hand-lamp, it looked
perhaps nobler than it had a right to do; but it was a fine face, honourable
rather than intelligent, strong, simple, and righteous.
"You knock late, sir," said the old man in resonant, courteous tones. Womens MonteBello Parka


Villon cringed, and brought up many servile words of apology; at a
crisis of this sort, the beggar was uppermost in him, and the man of genius
hid his head with confusion.
"You are cold," repeated the old man, "and hungry? Well, step in." And Womens HyBridge Lite Vest


he ordered him into the house with a noble enough gesture.
"Some great seigneur," thought Villon, as his host, setting down the
lamp on the flagged pavement of the entry, shot the bolts once more into
their places.
