"'do your graces think it's an easy job to blow up a dog?'"

"I know very well what the temptations of the devil are, and one of the greatest is to give a man the idea that he can compose and publish a book and thereby win as much fame as fortune, as much fortune as fame. . . ."

     Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote II.Prologue (trans. Edith Grossman (New York: HarperCollins Publishers, Inc., 2003), 456).
