Too good not to share

“Thou mayest well believe that,” answered Don Quixote, “because, either I know little, or this castle is enchanted, for thou must know-but this that I am now about to tell thee thou must swear to keep secret until after my death.”

“I swear it,” answered Sancho.”

I say so,” continued Don Quixote, “because I hate taking away anyone’s good name.”

“I say,” replied Sancho, “that I swear to hold my tongue about it till the end of your days, and God grant I may be able to let it out tomorrow.”

“Do I do thee such injuries, Sancho,” said Don Quixote, “that thou wouldst see me dead so soon?”

“It is not for that,” replied Sancho, “but because I hate keeping things long, and I don’t want them to grow rotten with me from over-keeping.”

From Don Quixote.
Sooo funny. I’m reading it on the iPod which makes it so much easier to hold and carry around. And I happened to go to the Hispanic Museum in NYC yesterday where Don Quixote appeared as in a vision, which he frequently sees in his travels.
