Robin Hood

The jolly, heroic, English outlaw himself!

“It doth make a man better,' quoth Robin Hood, 'to bear of those noble men so long ago. When one doth list to such tales, his soul doth say, 'put by thy poor little likings and seek to do likewise.' Truly, one may not do as nobly one's self, but in the striving one is better...”

―The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood

“he was a good outlawe,

And dyde pore men moch god.”

-- A Gest of Robyn Hod
