Vilia miretur vulgus: mihi flavus Apollo
Pocula Castalia plena ministret aqua.
.....................................................
P. Ovidius Naso, Amores, Elegy 15

Vilia miretur vulgus; mihi flavus Apollo
Pocula Castalia plena ministret aqua,
Sustineamque coma metuentem (F)rigor(A) myrtu(M),
Atque (A)sollicito multus amante legar!
Pascitur in vivis Livor; post [FATA] quiescit,
Cum suus ex merito quemque tuetur honos.
Ergo etiam cum me supremus adederit ignis,
Vivam, parsque mei multa superstes erit.

"–Éste es el día, ¡oh Sancho!, en el cual *SE HA DE VER* el bien que
me tiene guardado mi suerte; éste es el día, digo, en que se ha de
mostrar, tanto como en otro alguno, el valor de mi brazo, y en el que
tengo de hacer obras que queden escritas en *EL LIBRO DE LA FAMA*
por todos los venideros siglos. ¿Ves aquella *POLVAREDA* que allí
se levanta, Sancho? Pues toda es cuajada de un copiosísimo ejército
que de diversas e innumerables gentes por allí viene marchando.

–A esa cuenta, dos deben de ser –dijo Sancho–, porque desta parte
contraria se levanta asimesmo otra semejante *POLVAREDA*.

Volvió a mirarlo don Quijote, y vio que así era la *VERDAD* ;
y, alegrándose sobremanera, pensó, sin duda alguna, que eran dos
ejércitos que venían a embestirse y a encontrarse en mitad
de aquella espaciosa llanura (...)

–Señor, ¿pues qué hemos de hacer nosotros?

–¿Qué? –dijo don Quijote–: favorecer y ayudar a los menesterosos y
desvalidos. Y has de saber, Sancho, que este que viene por nuestra
frente le conduce y guía el grande emperador Alifanfarón, señor de la
grande isla Trapobana; este otro que a mis espaldas marcha es el de su
enemigo, el rey de los garamantas, Pentapolén del Arremangado Brazo,
porque siempre entra en las batallas con el brazo derecho desnudo."

Shelton's Don Quixote, Part 1. The Third Book
http://www.bartleby.com/14/304.html

IV. Wherein Are Rehearsed the Discourses Passed between Sancho Panza
and His Lord, Don Quixote, with Other Adventures Worthy the Recital
.................................
‘This is, Sancho, the day wherein *SHALL BE MANIFEST* the good which
fortune hath reserved for me. This is the day wherein the force of
mine arm must be shown as much as in any other whatsoEVER; and in
it I will do such feats as shall for EVER remain recorded in the
*BOOKS OF FAME* . Dost thou see, Sancho the *DUST* which ariseth
there? Know that it is caused by a mighty army, and sundry and
innumerable nations, which come marching there.’

‘If that be so,’ quoth Sancho, ‘then must there be *two armies*;
for on this other side is raised as great a *DUST*.’

Don *Quixote* turned back to behold it, and
seeing it was *SO INDEED* , he was marvellous glad,
thinking that they were doubtlessly *two armies*, which came
to fight one with another in the midst of that spacious plain

[for he had his *FANTASY EVER* replenished with these battles,
enchantments, successes, ravings, loves, and challenges which are
rehearsed in books of knighthood, and all that EVER he spoke, thought,
or did, was addressed and applied to the like things. And the *DUST*
which he had seen was raised by two great flocks of sheep, that came
through the same field by two different ways, and could not be
discerned, by reason of the *DUST*, until they were VERy near.
Don Quixote did affirm that they were two armies with so VERy
good earnest as Sancho believed it, and demanded of him,]

‘Sir, what then shall we two do?

‘What shall we do.’ quoth Don Quixote, ‘but assist the needful and
weaker side? For thou shalt know, Sancho, that he who comes towards
us is the great emperor Alifamfaron, lord of the great island of
Trapobana; the other, who marcheth at our back, is his enemy, the
king of the Garamantes, Pentapolin of the naked arm, so called
because he still entereth in battle with his right arm naked.’

<< *ESCHEAT* is a common law doctrine that operates to ensure
that property is not left in limbo and ownerless. It originally
referred to a number of situations where a legal interest in
land was destroyed by operation of law, so that the ownership
of the land reverted to the immediately superior feudal lord.>>
