As soon as Don Quixote had read the inscription on the parchment he perceived clearly that it referred to the disenchantment of Dulcinea, and returning hearty thanks to heaven that he.
Miguel de Cervantes
As they use to say spick and span new.
Time ripens all things. No man is born wise.
Anyone who is ignorant, even a lord and prince, can and should be counted as one of the mob.
Art does not surpass nature but perfects it.
It was a hard life, a life of poverty, of incessant struggle, of toil ill paid, of disappointment, but Cervantes carried within himself the antidote to all these evils.
