Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

“It is one thing to write as poet and another to write as a historian: the poet can recount or sing about things not as they were, but as they should have been, and the historian must write about them not as they should have been, but as they were, without adding or subtracting anything from the truth.”


Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote
