Price: $1.99
This book is an anthology of 116 quotes from Leonardo da Vinci and 91 selected facts about Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo was the first to explain why the sky is blue. Leonardo drew the plans for the first armored car in 1485. Leonardo never married nor had children. Leonardo was rumored to have been homosexual by his contemporaries. 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, roughly 100,000 US dollars. Human misery Oh, how many things you surrender for the money! All our knowledge comes from sensation. Just as a well-spent day produces a sweet dream, so a life well used because a sweet death. Where the soul works with his hands, there is no art. Anyone who thinks little errs much. A work of art is never finished, only abandoned. Mediocre is the pupil who does not surpass his master.
