Ed. Note: The editor apologizes for the few Q's who have
QUIETUS, Fluvius, of Rome. Always put his name to everything
when he came around.
QUIXOTE, Don, famous knight-errant of Spain. Made some
desperate conquests for his lady-love, and was defeated by a
windmill. In all his defeats, however, he showed to the world
that a laugh cuts deeper than a sword, and that satire would
kill where a lance could not penetrate. The word quixotic is
used to his commemoration.
