Joan of Arc quote

I was happy to see that you do quotes. I was going to send this to Ken after he consigned me to a solitary circle in hell during the place-time fiasco. Consider it sent, Ken, but does anyone know in which work Joan of Arc spoke these words?.....
"Do you think you can frighten me by telling me I am alone?/ France is alone, and God is alone/ And what is my loneliness to the loneliness of my country and my God?

"Well, it's about time she quit hanging around with queers. She's like a lot of bluestocking college girls--all her friends are homosexuals. She's got more faggots at her feet than Joan of Arc."

Thanks, Jan. Went there, got it. It's something from my early days which "keeps coming back like a song".
Much obliged.

Joan alone? I'd have you know there was a close circle of friends. As well as Di Ameter and the Bluestocking College Girls, Ms d'Arc was often accompanied by a Tan Gent.

And what about that sailor spouting all that nautical lingo who they called Sea Cant?

(I don´t whether it is PC to call Gilles de Rais a queer and whether he (as Bluebeard) has colored her stockings)

Has anyone heard that Ms d'Arc has been determined to be hoax perpetrated by the French royalty. She was apparently a French noblewoman, who played the part to give strength and encouragement to the French Army against the Brits. When she was captured, a convicted female criminal was substituted for her. Ah, zee French! Ah, les français. Très astucieux! N'cest pas? N'est pas?
