Random Medieval Proverbs

Buried deep in the thesis at the moment, but I thought I’d offer up a few choice proverbs from Chretien de Troyes:

“Every saint has a feast day” — roughly equivalent to “Every dog has his day,” a good bit nicer than “Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.”

“The goat that fouls his own stall gets little rest.” — Pretty self-explanatory, eh?
