Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

“All of that is true,’ responded Don Quixote, ‘but we cannot all be friars, and God brings His children to heaven by many paths: chivalry is a religion, and there are sainted knights in Glory.’

Yes,’ responded Sancho, ‘but I’ve heard that there are more friars in heaven than knights errant.’

That is true,’ responded Don Quixote, ‘because the number of religious is greater than the number of knights.’

There are many who are errant,’ said Sancho.

Many,’ responded Don Quixote, ‘but few who deserve to be called knights.”
