The Ingenious Gentleman

Visions of Quixote, Octavio Ocampo (1989)

Great hearts, my dear master, should be patient in misfortune as well as joyful in prosperity. And this I judge from myself. For if I was merry when I was Governor now that I’m a squire on foot I’m not sad, for I’ve heard tell that Fortune, as they call her, is a drunken and capricious woman and, worse still, blind; and so she doesn’t see what she’s doing, and doesn’t know whom she is casting down or raising up. — Sancho Panza (Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes)
