This book is an anthology of 115 quotes from Leonardo da Vinci and 90 selected by Blago Kirov facts about Leonardo da Vinci. It grants Leonardo's reflections on subjects ranging from the Human misery to his Will to break into the Providence of God. Some Facts: Leonardo was born on April 15th, 1452, on a Saturday, at ten-thirty at night. Leonardo was the first to explain why the sky is blue. Leonardo never married nor had children. Leonardo was rumoured to have been homosexual by his contemporaries. As a young man, Leonardo was jailed for two months over charges of sleeping with a young male prostitute. Leonardo began painting The Mona Lisa in 1503, and carried it around with him for most of the rest of his life. Leonardo sold The Mona Lisa to King Francis I in 1516 for 4,000 ecus, approximately 100,000 US dollars. His Words: Human misery Oh, how many things you surrender for the money! Study the science of art and the art of science. A work of art is never finished, only abandoned. Art lives and dies limits of freedom. Mediocre is the pupil who does not surpass his master. That painter who has no doubts will achieve little. Good judgment comes from good intelligence and good intelligence derived from the right, taken from the good rules, and good rules are daughters of good experience: common mother of all sciences and arts.
