C is for Cervantes

This year, my theme is Quotes from A-Z.  Each day I will post a quote from a person whose name starts with each day's letter.  It will be short and sweet but hopefully it will bring a moment of inspiration, laughter, or meditation to your busy day.  I would love to hear your thoughts on the quotes in the comments or what other quote is your favorite by that day's person. On each Saturday, I will list all the quotes from the week and you can vote to tell me which was your favorite!  

C is for Miguel de Cervantes
(1547-1616) Spanish novelist, author of Don Quixote

Spanish portrait of Cervantes from 1791

“...your grace's words have been like manure spread on the barren ground of my dry and uncultivated mind.” 
 -Sancho Panza to Don Quixote

Happy Friday!

  1. In other words, watch where you step...

  2. I'm not sure if that's a compliment or not.

  3. LOL. Compliments were different then.

  4. Wow, I wonder how that was perceived all those years ago. I would take it as an insult these days.


  5. Actually, coming from Sancho, it's supposed to be as crude of a compliment as it is. It's one of my favorite parts of Sancho, there is truth, but he never conveys his truths with grace.
