About Don Quixote:
On January 16th 1605, the first edition of “El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha” by Miguel de Cervantes was published in Madrid…A modern novel of a noble, idealist and curious man who decided to live in a imaginary and magic world…The enchanting knight-errant inspired generations of readers to the most highest values: liberty, love, social right, dreams…
“To beat the impossible
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right”
Let the day be inspired by the magical power of Don Quiijote de la Mancha!
