Quixote is a mythical character in a novel by Miguel de Cervantes. Don Quixote fights symbolic battles while the rest of the world says it can’t be done, and mock him for trying. Don Quixote is well known for fighting windmills that he imagines to be monstrous giants.
Just then they came in sight of thirty or forty windmills that rise from that plain. And no sooner did Don Quixote see them that he said to his squire, “Fortune is guiding our affairs better than we ourselves could have wished. Do you see over yonder, friend Sancho, thirty or forty hulking giants? I intend to do battle with them and slay them. With their spoils we shall begin to be rich for this is a righteous war and the removal of so foul a brood from off the face of the earth is a service God will bless.”
