    Don Quixote original quote?

    Hey guys!

    I've been searching and searching online but seeing as I don't speak Spanish it's been really hard! lol!

    So I was wondering if any of you knew what the the original Spanish line in Don Quixote that was later translated into:

    "I know who I am and who I may be, if I choose"

    I don't even know what part of the book it's from! :S

    So any help at all would be very much appreciated!!

    Thanks!

    -Cat

    I think it's this one:

    "Yo sé quién soy —respondió don Quijote—, y sé que puedo ser, no solo los que he dicho, sino todos los Doce Pares de Francia, y aun todos los nueve de la Fama, pues a todas las hazañas que ellos todos juntos y cada uno por sí hicieron se aventajarán las mías."

    http://www.donquijote.org/spanishlan.../quijote/9.asp

    it's in chapter 5 part I
