I got tagged by a book meme

Dim bulb tagged both of us with a meme. Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book ( of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

Grabbing a book at random off the bookshelf- it turns out to be Chaucer- here goes:

"Herde al tis thyng Criseyde wel inough,
And every word gan for to notifie:
For which with sobre cheere hire herte lough,
For who is that ne wolde hire glorifie,
To mowen swich a knyght don lyve or dye?
But al passe I, lest ye to longe dwelle;
For for o fyn is al that evere I telle.
The tyme com fro dyner for to ryse,
and as hem aughte, arisen everichon."

Puff picked Nicholas Nickleby.

'We intend to win everything,' said he.

'Tilda has won something she didn't expect, I think, haven't you dear?' said Miss Squeers, maliciously.

'Only a dozen and eight, love,' replied Miss Price, affecting to take the question in a literal sense.

I'll leave the tagging for Puff...
