Wikipedia entry on the Subject: "Quixotism is the description of a person or an act that is caught up in the romance of noble deeds and the pursuit of unreachable goals. It also serves to describe an idealism without regard to practicality."

That's me, folks!

To celebrate my own quixotism I wrote lyrics that go with Rodgers & Hart's "Isn't It Romantic?"

Isn't it quixotic,
Dreaming you can set your people free?
Don't you feel exotic,
Wrapped up in your soothing vanity?

You can tilt them as no others can.
Spins, thrills,
Almost more than any mind can span.

So just stay quixotic,
Even though your dreams just won't come true.
Better than neurotic,
What else is there left for you to do?

Keep on
Tilting, silly dreamer.
Don't give up the chase.
Just you stay quixotic
Maybe you can win with grace.
