    Don Quixote

    Don Quixote was written 400 years ago – the first modern novel. I wrote this beBee Producer post a year ago and thought to would make it an anniversary share. “Too much sanity may be madness - and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be.” – Miquel Cervantes.

    I was taken back to my literature classes and my love for them. I enjoyed them so much I still have the books to revisit anytime.This is indeed one of the classics I never got around to reading. The bucketlist is getting heavy :)

    Sorry, Renée, I thought you said "raid" not "paid" and started climbing out my window. No, writers don't get paid much. We also carry a lot more responsibility. For instance, I have to pay for returned books. Most writers I know are doing something else. My publisher even suggested I do something else. He could hear my stomach growling over the phone. Actually, it was my dog, but I thought if my agent thought I was starving, he'd send a little something. He did. He sent a little royalty cheque. Even my dog laughed at the amount. #24

    Such welcome and fond memories @Gert Scholtz. I wish I could remember more than the Don pondering and Sancho advising something about his plan to charge a windmill. Perhaps it was the ride across the open field or a hat that lingers on from the movie.

    Not much to add really. I was fortune to read it about 10 years ago in a edition with both parts I and II. I don't remember that much about the book, but the reading experience itself brings me beautiful memories. As Maya Angelou said, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." And this is definitely how I feel about Don Quixote.

    Congratulations for your post, @Gert Scholtz. Just want to say something: Have a look at my profile.
    One of my favourite quotes of El Quijote, because it says so much with so little words is "ladran, Sancho, luego cabalgamos"
    "They bark, Sancho, it means we are riding"
    The meaning of it is that when people criticise you, it means that you are making something they don't.
    Glad we connected. Here you have another proof that Bebee is an affinity network

    The terms ‘communications’, ‘strategy and business development’ and ‘growth’ have become overused during the last decade and have become devalued as a result. In this book, Meaningful Conversations aims to simplify these terms and to re-value management and leadership by addressing topics and subjects in each distinctive chapter, and in an accessible way. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01MZ96P8T/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1484305287&sr=8-3&keywords=meaningful+conversations Geoff Hudson-Searle

    Great Buzz. This is one of the books that was a "Red Pill" for me back in my twenties. Just how simple you began with the first two quotes. I soon began to realize, that my unconscious decisions or habits were the results of what I thought about most. So, I changed my environment. I choose to change who I thought were my close friends years ago, and found people who wanted me to grow, and began to read. I read, not to finish an assignment, yet to grow myself.
    Within one year, my life took a entire 180.
