You can never have too much of a good thing—hundreds of enlightening proverbs from one of literature’s greatest novels A browser’s delight of proverbs, just in time for the 400th anniversary of Cervantes’ classic, The Wit and Wisdom of Don Quixote de la Mancha distills the timeless insight and humor of the masterpiece into a charming gift-size collection ideal for any lover of literature and great quotations. When Miguel de Cervantes first published Don Quixote de la Mancha in 1605 and 1615, he met with great success: It was the first-ever bestselling novel, going through six editions in the year of its publication. The masterpiece was beloved by so many because it resembled—and poked fun at—the cultural phenomena of its day. Following on the heels of the invention of the printing press, rising literacy rates, and the new global sensation of the novel, Don Quixote tells the story of a man driven mad from reading too much popular fiction—superhuman tales of warrior-heroes, magic weapons, and monstrous enemies. He goes in search of adventure, hoping to right all manner of wrongs and gain fame for his valorous deeds. Stories of wild superhuman adventure are still popular, especially on television and in the movies. To some extent, we are all Don Quixote, emboldened and driven mad by impossible media messages, fighting giants when they are only harmless windmills. We still have much to learn from the misadventures of the Man of La Mancha, and we are lucky to have his words of wisdom collected here. Decorated with rich illustrations and assembled with a historical introduction, the quotations are arranged according to theme for quick reference. From Love and Hope to Prudenceand Prosperity to Honor and Honesty, the themes will allow you to easily discover the perfect quote for any occasion. After 400 years, these sayings are still with us today and the best are gathered in this literary volume. In the words of the immortal Man of La Mancha, “Thou hast seen nothing yet.” “There cannot be too much of a good thing?”
