Advice from La Mancha 

No one knows you
when you’re down
Don’t step into the ring
you know
you’re going to win
God is the only true judge
Death comes
to rich and poor
apartment, mansion…
we’re not promised
another day
But I say to you
everyone struggles
From the goodest hearts
comes the evilest intent
be kind

Don Quixote --  Aurelio Teno

  1. La Mancha is an arid but fertile plateau that stretches from the mountains of Toledo, Spain, to the western spurs of the hills of Cuenca, and bordered to the south by the Sierra Morena and to the north by the Alcarria region. Its name is derived from the Arab "al-mansha" ("the dry land" or "wilderness"). "Mancha" in Spanish means spot, stain, or patch, and Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra used the word as a pun, as a stain on one's honor, as an inappropriately-named homeland for a dignified knight-errant in his 1605/1615 novel "Don Quixote de la Mancha."
