“When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”
— Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote
I saw this quote on The Scarlet Pumpernickel‘s website, and wanted to make a note of it, somewhere I wouldn’t be likely to lose it (as in: not on a scrap of paper!). Here seemed a natural choice.
It reminds me of my poem ‘The Master and his Squire‘ which I penned some time ago.
