Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#3. Let no one read my principles who is not a mathematician," he famously declared (less famous is the fact that the principles he was referring to were his theories of how the aortic pulmonary valve worked). Ironically, he himself was a poor mathematician, often making simple mistakes. In one of his notes he counted up his growing library: "25 small books, 2 larger books, 16 still larger, 6 bound in vellum, 1 book with green chamois cover." This reckoning (with its charmingly haphazard system of classification) adds up to fifty, but Leonardo reached a different sum: "Total: 48," he confidently declared. - Author: Ross King

Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#12. Homosexuality is assuredly no advantage, but it is nothing to be ashamed of, no vice, no degradation; it cannot be classified as an illness; we consider it to be a variation of the sexual function, produced by a certain arrest of sexual development. Many highly respectable individuals of ancient and modern times have been homosexuals, several of the greatest men among them (Plato, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, etc.). It is a great injustice to persecute homosexuality as a crime
and a cruelty, too. If you do not believe me, read the books of Havelock Ellis. - Author: Sigmund Freud
Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Sigmund Freud
#13. The length of a man's outspread arms is equal to his height. - Author: Leonardo Da Vinci
Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci

Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#15. But after taking command of the Army of Italy in 1796, Napoleon took organized theft to a new level ... The French also stole art at a new level: Napoleon requested that the government send him experts qualified to judge which paintings his men should steal; priceless canvases by Titian, Raphael, Rubens, and Leonardo da Vinci were shipped to Paris. - Author: Tom Reiss
Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Tom Reiss
#16. The painter who draws by practise and judgment of the eye without the use of reason is like the mirror which reproduces within itself all the objects which are set opposite to it without knowledge of the same. - Author: Leonardo Da Vinci
Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#17. I think it is no small attraction in a painter to be able to give a pleasing air to his figures, and whoever is not naturally possessed of this grace may acquire it by study, as opportunity offers in the following manner: be on the watch to take good parts of many beautiful faces of which the beautiful parts are established by general repute rather than by your own judgement, for you may deceive yourself by selecting faces that resemble your own, since it often seems that such similarities please us; ... so therefore choose the beautiful ones as I tell you and fix them in your mind. - Author: Leonardo Da Vinci
Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#18. He taught me to be a Da Vinci
and I sit here, with his portraits
waiting for him to return
I do not think he will
Is that what it means to be human
to be all powerful,
to build a temple to yourself
and leave
only the walls to pray - Author: Phil Kaye
Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Phil Kaye
#19. To write good religious science fiction, or indeed good religious fiction of any kind, is a challenge but one that it would be worthwhile trying to meet. It seems a pity the field has been apparently abandoned to pernicious rubbish like 'The Da Vinci Code', though this seems already, mercifully, to have faded away. In this, as in other areas, we could do with another C. S. Lewis to re-state the principles of Christianity in terms to stir the imagination. - Author: Hal G.P. Colebatch
Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Hal G.P. Colebatch

Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#21. I've never believed that they're separate. Leonardo da Vinci was a great artist and a great scientist. Michelangelo knew a tremendous amount about how to cut stone at the quarry. The finest dozen computer scientists I know are all musicians. Some are better than others, but they all consider that an important part of their life. I don't believe that the best people in any of these fields see themselves as one branch of a forked tree. I just don't see that.People bring these things together a lot. Dr. Land at Polaroid said, "I want Polaroid to stand at the intersection of art and science," and I've never forgotten that. I think that that's possible, and I think a lot of people have tried. - Author: Steve Jobs
Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Steve Jobs
#22. It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things. - Author: Leonardo Da Vinci
Schirmeister Vinci quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#23. Putting your hand into a river, you simultaneously touch the last of what is passing and the first of what is coming. - Author: Leonardo Da Vinci

#36. Everything was deathly quiet. The eyes were the most terrifying: the eyes of dinosaurus; the eyes of trilobites and ants; the eyes of birds and butterflies; the eyes of bacteria... The humans alone possessed one hundred billion pairs of eyes, equal to the number of stars in the Milky Way, Among them were the eyes of ordinary men and women, and the eyes of Da Vinci, Shakespeare, and Einstein. - Author: Liu Cixin
