Adventures with Ideas: Truth, Beauty, and the Paradoxes of Life.

Word of the day: Quixotic

Quixotic means:

1. extravagantly chivalrous or romantic; visionary, impractical, or impracticable.

2. impulsive and often rashly unpredictable.

3. (sometimes initial capital letter) resembling or befitting Don Quixote.

4. caught up in the romance of noble deeds and the pursuit of unreachable goals; idealistic without regard to practicality.

Cool word hey!

Photo from Julie Taymor’s Across The Universe – an incredible (and maybe a little quixotic) movie featuring lots of Beatles songs and the incredible charming Jim Sturgess. One of my favourite movies of all time.

I wonder if it’s a bad thing to be a little quixotic some times?
