Sancho Panza just realized that Don Quixote is a madman.... Sancho Panza said, Don Quixote a madman, and we sane; he goes off laughing, safe and sound, and you're left and sorry! I'd like to know now which is madder, he because he can't help it or he who is so of his own choice.

To what I say to thee! If by any chance thou darest to cross this line thou seest, or even approach it, the instant I see thee attempt it that same instant will pierce my bosom with this dagger that I hold in my hand; and before thou answerst me a word desire to listen to a few from me, and afterward thou shalt reply as may please thee.---Camilla

What art thou doing, what art thou plotting, what art thou devising? Bethink thee thou art working against theyself, plotting thine own dishonor, divising thine own ruin. Thy wife Camilla is virtuous, thou dost possesses her in peace and quietness, no one assails thy happiness, her thoughts wander not beyond the walls of thy house, thou art her heaven and earth, the object of her wishes --- Anselmo

Hold thy tongue, Sancho, and henceforward keep to proding they ass and don't meddle in what does not concern thee, and understand with all thy five senses everything I have done, and doing, or shall do, is well founded on reason and in conformity with the rules of chivalry, for I understand them better than all the world that profess them. ---Don Quixote

If luck would have it the animals spoke as they did in the days of Guisopete about whatever came into my head, and so put with it my ill-fortune, but it is hard case, and not to be borne with patience, to go seeking adventures all one's life and get nothing but kicks and blanketing, brickbacks, and punches, and with all this to have to sew up owns mouth without daring to say what it is in one's heart. ---Sancho

Come back, Senor Don Quixote; I vow before God they are sheep and ewes you are charging! Come back! Unlucky the father begot me! What madness is this! Look there's no giants, nor knight, nor cats, nor arms, nor shields quaartered or whole, nor vair azure or bedevilled. What are you about? Sinner that I am before God. -----Sancho Panza (Don Quixote's squire).

The fear thou art in, Sancho, said Don Quixote, prevents thee from seeing or hearing correctly, for one of the effects of fear is to derange the senses and make things appear different from what they are; if thou art in such fear, withdraw to one side and leave me to myself, for I alone I suffice to bring victory to which I shall give my and, so saying..

Sancho, a mouth without teeth is like a mill without a millstone,and tooth is much more to be prized the diamond; but we who profess the austere order of chivalry are liable to all this. Mount my friend, and lead the way, and I will follow thee at whatever pace thou wilt.

Mine was to live in perpetual solitude and that earth alone should enjoy the beauty I possess was no choice of mine, for, be it what it may, Heaven of its bounty gave it me without my asking or choosing it; and as the viper, though it kills with it, does not deserves to be blamed for the poison it carries, as it is a gift of nature, neither do I deserve reproach for being beautiful-- Marcela

The pursuit of any calling does not allow or permit to go in any other fashion; easy life, enjoyment,and repose were invented for soft courtiers, but toil, unrest, and arms were invented and made for those alone whom the world call knights-errants,of whom I, though unworthy, am the least of all--Don Quixote.

Your fantasies, Sir Quixote, it is true, That crazy brain of yours have quite upset, But aught of base or mean hath never yet. And your pain sore drabbing did you get from many a rascally and ruffian crew. In the fair Dulcinea your hearts queen, Be relenting in her cruelty if still your woe be powerless to move her. That Sancho was a sorry go-between. A booby he, hard-hearted-she, and you no lover.
