Morgan La Fey

Morgan La Fey

from John Steinbeck, 'The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights'

“Like many cruel and evil women, Morgan le Fay knew men’s weaknesses and discounted their strengths. And she knew also that most improbable actions may be successful so long as they are undertaken boldly and without hesitation, for men believe beyond proof to the contrary that blood is thicker than water ... and that a beautiful woman cannot be evil.”
