Reviews of : Thoughts on Art and Life by Leonardo Da Vinci PDF Book
Inside this Book – I enjoyed these notes written by DaVinci himself. What an amazing mind. Everything from a discussion of the five senses and consciousness — termed “common sense,” by Da Vinci — to a vivid description of how to paint a battle scene, to a discussion of science and flight. DaVinci claims that words are not as powerful or as long lived as a painting, but I sense his personality from reading his words, and he is able to describe as vividly as he paints. Truly one of the great human minds.
Inside this book –Thoughts on Art and Life PDF Book by Leonardo Da Vinci – I’ll level with you. I read this book because of Da Vinci’s Demons. Don’t think this a stab at culture or pretense or anything. That said, the book was surprisingly engaging, considering its age, and the fact that, between the ciphers and the terse, rambling tone, it was obviously never intended for public viewing. It’s divided into three parts: Views on Life, Views on Art, and Views on Science. His views on life were easily my favorite. It was packed with pithy aphorisms of the kind that even big Ben Franklin would’ve nodded along in indulgent approval. They were generally optimistic, but with that shade of macabre cynicism that you only get from staying up late and cutting open corpses. Many of them pertained, in some way, to intelligence. On death: “A day well spent makes sleep seem pleasant, so a life well employed makes death pleasant. A life well spent is long.” On espionage: “It is impossible either to hate or to love a thing without first acquiring knowledge of it.”
