Quote for March 2016

"Do you not see that the eye encompasses the beauty of the whole world:
It is the master of astronomy, it assists and directs all the arts of man.
It sends men forth to all the corners of the earth.
It reigns over the various departments of mathematics,
and all its sciences are the most infallible.
It has measured the distance to the size of the stars;
it has discovered the elements and the nature thereof;
and from the courses of the constellations
it has enabled us to predict things to come.
It has created architecture and perspective,
and lastly, the divine art painting.
O, thou most excellent of all God’s creations!
What hymns can do justice to thy nobility;
what peoples, what tongues,
sufficiently describe thine achievements?"

~ Leonardo da Vinci
