o  “Nobody could mistake them, unless he had windmills on the brain.”

o  ”With their spoils we will begin to get rich, for this is a fair war, and it is a great serviceto God to wipe such a wicked brood from the face of the earth.”

o  “If I for my sins or by good luck were to meet with some giant hereabouts, as generally happens to knights errant, and if I were to overthrow him in the encounter …”

o  “In fact, now that he had utterly wrecked his reason he fell into the strangest fancy that ever a madman had in the whole world.”

o  “I must say, for my part, that I have to cry out at the slightest twinge, unless this business of not complaining extends to knights errants’ squires as well.”

o  “Sancho Panza rushed to his assistance as fast as his donkey could trot, but when he came up he found that the knight could not stir.”
