We are hosting a meme called: That’s what HE said Thursday. For more info on what this meme is all about click here. We will be doing our posts once a month rather than weekly. The Linky will be open all year long and you are welcome to continue doing your post weekly and linking them up.
Jest is a Joker, the King’s fool, and talks in silly funny ways.
“Perhaps we know each other in the future and you’re only remembering backward.”
And in riddles. Lots of riddles.
“The easiest way to steal something, is for it to be given willingly.”
And I also love their banter:
“You must think I’m a fool to even consider rejecting him.’
‘My lady, I am a professional fool. I can say with certainty that you do not have the makings of one.’
She smirked. ‘Then that’s a relief.’
‘Is it? Have you something against fools?’
‘Not at all. Only, if I were as natural at foolishness as I am at poetry, I might try to take your position from you, and you seem so very well suited to it.”
-Jest to Lady Catherine

Goodreads didn’t have the best selection of quotes for me, and that’s the tough part when doing audio books, but this is a decent sampling of the fun silly things Jest says that manage to win Cath’s heart before she becomes the heartless Queen.
