    Leonardo Da Vinci Quotes
    1

    Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

    2

    Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.

    3

    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

    4

    I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

    5

    Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence

    6


    Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.

    7

    Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water loses its purity and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigor of the mind.

    8


    Human subtlety...will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does nature, because in her inventions nothing is lacking, and nothing is superfluous.

    9

    All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions.

    10

    There are three classes of people: those who see, those who see when they are shown, those who do not see.

    11

    You can have no dominion greater or less than that over yourself.

    12

    Learning never exhausts the mind.

    13

    Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.

    14

    Time stays long enough for anyone who will use it.

    15

    The truth of things is the chief nutriment of superior intellects.

    16

    The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions.

    17

    Nature never breaks her own laws.

    18

    Art is never finished, only abandoned.

    Codex Leicester
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



    The Codex Leicester (also briefly known as Codex Hammer) is a collection of largely scientific writings by Leonardo da Vinci. The codex is named after Thomas Coke, later created Earl of Leicester, who purchased it in 1717. Of Leonardo's 30 scientific journals, the Codex may be the most famous of all.

    The Codex provides an insight into the inquiring mind of the definitive Renaissance artist, scientist and thinker as well as an exceptional illustration of the link between art and science and the creativity of the scientific process.

    The Codex was purchased in 1980 by wealthy industrialist and art collector Armand Hammer from the Leicester estate, and renamed the Codex Hammer.[1]

    In 1994, Bill Gates bought it at an auction for US$30.8 million, making it the most expensive book ever sold, and he subsequently renamed it the Codex Leicester.

    Leonardo da vinci : the codex leicester

    general information

    A scarcely faded handwriting, woven of letters and figures that sometimes suggests hieroglyphics; an enigmatic texture that can be deciphered only with the help of a mirror; a science ushering in a new epoch, yet composed in an italian belonging to the waning middle ages; celestial secrets and worldly riddles, suffused with the idiom of tuscan farmers: the museum der dinge welcomes the new millennium with a scintillating treasure from the last one. it presents, protected under a soft twilight, the codex leicester of leonardo da vinci.

    The manuscript is one of the most important written by leonardo to have been preserved. on 18 folio sheets, folded into 72 pages and covered in tightly composed mirror-handwriting and illustrated with many drawings, leonardo recorded haphazardly between 1506 and 1510 a wealth of observations of nature, technical sketches, inventions, speculations and thought experiments. they portray the body of the earth as a living organism; the main topic is the nature of water. leonardo carried the sheets with him in a notebook bound in leather. we can watch as leonardo ponders over light and shadow, ebb and flow, the light of the moon, primeval and apocalyptic phenomena.

    Leonardo's manuscript is like an outwardly expanding circle of waves, created by a virtually tireless matrix: an unrelenting drive to transform, translating institutions, ideas, and visions into texts, prophecies, drawings, technical designs and apocalyptic nightmares, whereby all these spheres converge and commingle; the sciences and arts reciprocally infuse, fertilize, unsettle each another.

    Here drawings and words exchange their functions: the drawings explain contexts and connections, the texts overflow with poetic images. we experience how leonardo delves into the depths of the universe - and when we lean forward to within centimeters of the manuscript, we discover in the middle of this universe a minute hole that the artist-engineer punched into the paper with the tip of a drafting compass five hundred years ago.

    The short passages by leonardo are here presented as individual pages. each page is headed by a question. an answer, in the spirit of leonardo, then follows. in many places a moving drawing illustrates what is described. finally the excerpt from leonardo and its textual provenance are provided.

    The extensive material is organized into separate thematic units that can be accessed by means of interconnected pathways. a guiding question precedes each pathway.
