... When the tables were removed, and ladies and knights met, their grief was renewed; every dame or damsel said to her knight, that she would go in his company, and many knights would have consented, if it had not been for an old man, drest in robes of religion, who entered the hall, and said to the king, loud enough for all to hear: "Listen, sirs knights, who have sworn the quest of the Holy Grail!  By me commandeth the hermit Nascien, that no dame or damsel take part in the quest, for 't is not terrestrial, but it shall be the beginning of the mystery of Our Lord, which He will reveal to the good knight whom among the others hath He chosen to be his servant, to whom shall be disclosed what heart of man hath not dreamed, nor tongue of man told." (King Arthur and the Table Round, Chretien-Newell, 1911)
