Quote of the Day: Cervantes

So, a little out of the normal for me, but I've been reading Don Quixote lately, and here is a few lines that caught my attention today:

"...I do not know what God will reply to your complaints, nor can I tell what His Majesty's response will be: all I do know is that if I were the King I should refrain from replying to the countless irrelevant memoranda handed him every day; for one of the most tedious of the many, many chores of a monarch is having to listen to everybody and reply to everybody; so I shoudl nto like him to be bothered by my affairs."

Cervantes, Don Quixote, part II, chapter VI
