Thought for Today:

Never stand begging for that which you have the power to earn. --Miguel de Cervantes
永远不要乞讨你有能力获得的东西。--塞万提斯

Today's Highlight in History:

1605: The first part of Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes was published in Madrid on January 16. The hero, Don Quixote, loses his wits from reading too many romances and comes to believe that he is a knight destined to revive the golden age of chivalry. A tall, gaunt man in armor, he has many comical adventures with his fat squire, Sancho Panza. It is one of the earliest written novels in a modern European language. Some people consider it the finest book in the Spanish language. The second part was published in 1615.
1605年1月16日,塞万提斯写的《唐吉诃德》第一部在马德里出版。书中讲述唐吉诃德由于受到浪漫小说的影响,相信自己就是复兴骑士时代的战士。又瘦又高的唐吉诃德身披铠甲,和他的胖随从桑科·潘萨经历了很多滑稽的探险。它是最早使用现代欧洲语言的小说之一,很多人认为它是西班牙语最好的书。它的第二部分出版于1615年。

2005: Adriana Iliescu gives birth at age 66 on January 16, became the oldest woman in the world to do so. The child is not her biological child, as the ovum (and also the sperm) was from an anonymous donor, and Iliescu was more of a Surrogate mother. She is a retired university lecturer and writer of children's stories.
2005年1月16日,66岁的阿德里安娜·伊利斯库生下一名婴儿,成为世界上最高龄产妇。她并非自然受孕,而是接受了一位匿名者的精子捐赠。她是一所大学的退休讲师何儿童读物作者。
