A collection of quotes from one of history’s most well known polymath – Leonardo da Vinci
“Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.”Leonardo da Vinci
Be careful not to stand silent to any injustice you see to yourself or others. As proven many times in history, when an aggressor suffers no consequence they often take this as an acceptance of their actions. It takes courage to stand up to wrong doings, especially when it does not impact you, your friends or your family but if we want to make the world a better place, we must put ourselves in these selfless confrontations.
“The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.”Leonardo da Vinci
The wisdom gained from the understanding of a topic once unknown to ones self is often rewarding. Knowledge is a special kind of pleasure that one can arguably not gain elsewhere and it is often the case that the gathering of knowledge in one field leads to sparked interest in others previously unknown.
“As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death”Leonardo da Vinci
Spend your days well and you spend your life well. Spend your life well and die a happy person. The message here is to focus on happiness each and every day, lead a fulfilling life and leave the earth a fulfilled person.
