The Passion of Don Quixote

Passion is only present when Plan B is absent. Don Quixote demonstrates what it is to be truly passionate through his dedication even in the face of defeat; what he believes to be life and death. In each adventure he embarks, he is unsuccessful, or worse, he is beaten. In spite of this, Don Quixote never leaves his task and is not discouraged. For example, in the third part, when Don Quixote is convinced that two armies are going to be assault one another, he decides to defend them without hesitation and says «¡Favorecer a los menesterosos!» (Andrade 88). Although he only imagined the threat of armies, he was passionate about his duty to protect the lives of the needy. In this episode, Don Quixote does not prepare for failure, nor does he intend to save himself before the needy. In his mind, there is only one choice; save the day. In addition, he maintains this quality when he believes that a gang is taking a woman against her will. Don Quixote responds immediately, «¡Yo nací para deshacer agravios, y no consentiré que den un paso adelante sin que se le dé la deseada libertad que merece!» (Andrade 158). From beginning to end, Don Quixote has the same passion and focus that everyone strives for in life. Passion is the union of effort and concentration. If passion were tangible, it would be a path with only one destination. The vision in the mind of Don Quixote is so strong and true as if there is a physical route.
