From Don Quixote

...a story known by heart by the children, not forgotten by the young men, and lauded and even believed by the old folk; and for all that not a whit truer than the miracles of Mahomet.


Of course, it is to be remembered that the tale was written four hundred years ago, at the time of the crusades or, at least, immediately after them.
