Quote of the Day…

I refuse to admit that Alonso Quijano was crazy. What he was was fed up and so he chose another life. Rimbaud does the same when he writes that authentic life is elsewhere. I believe that Cervantes wrote Don Quixote so that Rimbaud would read it and give us that wonderful phrase.

— Jose Saramago
Portuguese writer (died June 18, 2010).
