“The Lord of La Mancha”

…Saying which, he spurred his horse, Rocinante, paying no attention to the shouts of Sancho Panza, his squire, warning him that without any question it was windmills and not giants he was going to attack. So utterly convinced was he they were giants, indeed, that he neither heard Sancho’s cries nor noticed, close as he was, what they really were, but charged on, crying:

“Flee not, oh cowards and dastardly creatures, for he who attacks you is a knight alone and unaccompanied.”

Just then the wind blew up a bit, and the great sails began to stir, which Don Quixote saw and cried out:

“Even should you shake more arms than the giant Briareus himself, you’ll still have to deal with me…”

Cervantes
