Quixotic?

The Encarta World English Dictionary supplies three definitions for quixotic.

  • excessively romantic; tending to take a romanticized view of life.
  • impractical; motivated by an idealism that overlooks practical considerations.
  • impulsive; tending to act on impulses.

The word itself is thought to be orginated from Cervantes’ famous novel, Don Quixote.
