Quotes

If,” “as a punishment for my sins or by a stroke of fortune I should ocme upon some giant hereabouts, a thing that very commonly happens to knight-errant, and if I should slay him, would it not be well to have someone to whom I may send him as a present, in order that he, if he is living, may fall upon his knees in front of my sweet lady, and say, ‘I, lady, am the giant Caraculiambro, lord of the island pf Malindrania, who has been overcome in single combat by that knight who sent me to present myself before your Grace that your Highness may dispose of me as your Highness sees fit’?”
Don Esteban Gutierrez de Caloca

 

 

If,” he said to himself, “as a punishment for my sins or by a stroke of fortune I should ocme upon some giant hereabouts, a thing that very commonly happens to knight-errant, and if I should slay him in a hand-to-hand encounter or perhaps cut him in two, or, finally, if I should vanquish and subdue him, would it not be well to have someone to whom I may send him as a present, in order that he, if he is living, may come in, fall upon his knees in front of my sweet lady, and say in a humble and submissive tone of voice, ‘I, lady, am the giant Caraculiambro, lord of the island Malindrania, who has been overcome in single combat by that knight who never can be priaised enough, Don Quixote de la Mancha, the same who sent me to present myself before your Grace that your Highness may dispose of me as you see fit’?”
Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra, The Ingenious Nobleman Mister Quixote of La Mancha, 1605, 1615

 

 

Tis a foolish thing dwelling ‘neath a roof of glass to stone thy neighbors as they pass.”
Paladin in the style of Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra

People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.”
