Toopposed that which must be opposed. No one has ever demandedthat a man must be successful.He pushes the lance further away.DANIEL, a young man in modern clothes,enters.DANIELDon Quixote.QUIXOTEDaniel.DANIELYou broke your lance.QUIXOTEYes.DANIELThat was the last one.QUIXOTEIt was. That it was.DANIELYou didn’t defeat him.QUIXOTECertainly not.DANIELIt’s time.QUIXOTEI know that.
