"Some men," the knight concluded, "take the broad field of ambition, others the road of low and servile adulation; some choose the way of hypocrisy and deception, and others still that of religion; but, as for me, led on by my star, I follow the narrow path of knight-errantry...I have undone wrongs, righted grievances, chastised the insolent, overcome giants, and trampled monsters under foot...My intention is always a worthy one: that of doing good to all and harm to none. As to whether a man with such a purpose and who puts it into execution deserves to be called a simpleton, that is for your Highnesses to say, O excellent Duke and Duchess."

—excerpt from Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes

"Many years ago, I was so innocent I still considered it possible that we could become the humane and reasonable America so many members of my generation used to dream of. We dreamed of such an America during the Great Depression, when there were no jobs. And then we fought and often died for that dream during the Second World War, when there was no peace."

—excerpt from Cold Turkey, a new article about American politics and War written by Kurt Vonnegut
