“‘Good fortune is guiding our affairs better than we could have desired, for there you see, friend Sancho Panza, thirty or more enormous giants with whom I intend to do battle…’ ‘What giants?’ said Sancho Panza. ‘Those you see over there,’ replied his master, ‘with the long arms; sometimes they are almost two leagues long.’ ‘Look, your grace,’ Sancho responded, ‘those things that appear over there aren’t giants but windmills…’” (Don Quixote, I.VIII, p. 58).
