Cervantes says:

Donquixote

“It is not the responsibility of knights errant to discover whether the afflicted, the enchained and the oppressed whom they encounter on the road are reduced to these circumstances and suffer this distress for their vices, or for their virtues:

— the knight’s sole responsibility is to
succour them as people in need,
having eyes only for their sufferings,
not for their misdeeds.”

Cervantes says:

Donquixote

“He who loses wealth loses much;
he who loses a friend loses more;
but he that loses his courage loses all.”
