Leonardo da Vinci teachings

The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.

Leonardo
da Vinci

 

 

 

Who sows virtue reaps honor.

The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions.

Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.

Men of lofty genius when they are doing the least work are most active.

Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.

He who wishes to be rich in a day will be hanged in a year.

I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. It is the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.

Time stays long enough for anyone who will use it.

Life well spent is long.

As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.

While I thought that I was learning how to live,

I have been learning how to die.
