“Cuando la vida misma parece lunática, ¿quién sabe dónde está la locura? Quizás ser demasiado práctico es una locura. Renunciar a los sueños, esto puede ser una locura. Demasiada cordura puede ser locura, y la más loca de todas: ¡ver la vida como es, y no como debería ser!”

 

― Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha
