Don Quixote

Don Quixote goes up to the counter and asks the barista for a drink worthy of a noble knight. “The drink,” he says, “must not be too sweet, for the tribulations of knighthood are many. Neither can it be too bitter, since knights work tirelessly to make the world a sweeter place. Most importantly, madam, my beverage must contain a dose of caffeine, for nobility without vigor is nobility wasted.” While he expounds on the perfect order, the barista makes him a medium coffee with cream. Don Quixote is elated.



“Now, blessings light on him that first invented sleep!   It covers a man all over, thoughts and all, like a cloak; it is meat for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, heat for the cold, and cold for the hot.  It is the current coin that purchases all the pleasures of the world cheap, and the balance that sets the king and the shepherd, the fool and the wise man, even. “
-Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote, 1605
