The poet ranks far below the painter in the representation of visible things, and far below the musician in that of invisible things.
Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Nature is full of infinite causes that have never occurred in experience.
For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned...
One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
You do ill to praise, but worse to censure, what you do not understand
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality
The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.
As every divided kingdom falls, so every mind divided between many studies confounds and saps...
No artist is ahead of his time. He 'is' his time; it is just that...
You do ill if you praise, but worse if you censure, what you do not...
Common Sense is that which judges the things given to it by other senses.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Where there is shouting, there is no true knowledge.
Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.
Just as courage imperils life, fear protects it.
Life well spent is long.
The truth of things is the chief nutriment of superior intellects.
Who sows virtue reaps honor.
Nature never breaks her own laws.
Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.
