Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519, Old Style) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer whose genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal.

"Make sure your dream is bigger than your fear." "Stop telling your big dreams to small-minded people." Steve Harvey These statements prove the deep-running wisdom amounts to that simple idea you knew in your heart but hadn't fully admitted to yourself. That's the wisdom we each can use. Every figure who dared do some greatness took a share of scorn, laughter and scoff. If they indict you as just a dreamer, count yourself with the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci, Richard Branson, Martin Luther King. Mother Teresa, Amelia Earhart, Coco Chanel. Dream and do at once. Dare let loose all over your life and the world. Scare the *** out of yourself and a few of the people along for your ride. I believe the size of our dreams equates to the size of our God. How big is yours?
Doctor Who 38.3 Robot of Sherwood: Written by Mark Gatiss. This is the episode in which the Doctor and Clara meets Robin Hood. The Doctor eats ice cream in the opening scene. No doubt an homage from Peter Capaldi to his family who had ran an ice cream business. Robin Hood is played by Tom Riley. Notwithstanding whether Robin Hood was ever a real person, Riley has been playing another historical person Leonardo Da Vinci in his lead role in Da Vinci’s Demoms (2013-present). The classic Robin Hood-Little John river fight gets recreated here only with the latter role being filled by the Doctor instead and the Doctor using a spoon against Robin’s sword! It’s so funny that one pushes the other and then the other way around in the river. Nice reference of Errol Flynn, who the Doctor apparently met, and who had played Robin Hood in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938). Whilst this is the first time that the Doctor has met Robin Hood he did however met two kings who are predominant in the Robin Hood legend .. ...

They had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." Orson Welles em The Third Man, Carol Reed.

Did you know: Leonardo da Vinci created designs of a very complicated parachute in 1485. This is only slightly later than the earliest mention or depiction of one, an anonymous design involving a long piece of cloth with handholds at each end, where extra security was provided by four ropes or cords attached to the parachute and to the user's belt. French inventor Louis-Sébastien Lenormand was the first to jump using a parachute in 1783. Stefan Banic, a Slovak inventor, constructed a prototype of a modern parachute in 1913.

Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresea, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, Albert Einstein, etc… If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse. Don’t choose the one who is beautiful to the world; choose the one who makes your world beautiful. Falling in love is not a choice. To stay in love is. True love isn’t about being inseparable; it’s about two people being true to each other even when they are separated. While you’re busy looking for the perfect person, you’ll probably miss the imperfect person who could make you perfectly happy. Never do something permanently foolish just because you are temporarily upset. You can learn great things from your mistakes when you aren’t busy denying them.

I have recently been thinking a lot these days! Though, I can't really decipher why I am always having these thoughts. But, one of the things I have been thinking, I decided to share them with you guys. It has to do with going way back to 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st Century AD. Great men of those days, were they created different? What's happening to the ''BRAINS'' of the 21st Century? Why were they so different? What of people like Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Max Planck, Galileo Galilei, Thomas Edison, Michael Faraday, William Shakespeare, Albert Eintein and other great scientists, artist and men? What is wrong with our generation? I ask myself, was the time alloted to these men not the same 24 hours a day, 7 Days a week, 12 Months in a year? What is wrong with us? How were those men thinking? How were they affected by the Governments, the masses and people that desliked their thoughts? What gave the motivation, Inspiration and Passion to PUSH forward? I also ask myself this question: Can I ever add ...

So today I went to the British Library, which had a ton of unbelievably important and classic texts (all originals!). I got to see (among many other things): Leonardo Da Vinci's notebooks, Shakespear's works, Chopin and Beethoven's hand-written music sheets, the Magna Carta, and Galileo's letters and book! This is one of Galileo's letter to a relative telling him that he is about to be tried in Rome for taking a heliocentric (sun is in the center) view of the solar system! I had to sneak this picture (they were not allowed)... Thought I would share this with you guys because you might be interested and also because, you know, physics and stuff.

Often in film directors and actor's form lasting relationships that result in repeated collaborations. Depp/Burton. DiCaprio/Scorsese. De Niro/Scorsese. Crowe/Scott. Russell/Cooper. Fassbender/McQueen. Nolan/Bale. Talk about fantasy collaborations between famous pairings. Here are five of mine. They vary from being somewhat based in reality to just wishful thinking. 1. Scorsese/DiCaprio - Teddy Roosevelt. This one was/is in the works. A biopic of the former U.S. president (and most bad *** human being to ever walk the earth) Theodore Roosevelt. The man's life is something out of a fantasy adventure. I really hope this comes to fruition. 2. Burton/Depp - Dr. Seuss. I've heard rumors of Depp playing the famed children's author and who better to direct than the off beat Burton? It's hit or miss when these two work together. It can be genius (Ed Wood, Sweeney Todd) or phenomenally dissapointing (Dark Shadows, Alice in Wonderland). I think this would be the former. 3. Cronenberg/Mortensen - Leonardo Da Vinci . ...

Rebuttal to Mr. Abbot The thing about the brain difference is, women have more white matter(men have more grey matter), which contains most of the neuronal cell bodies. Also, a smaller brain produces We have more connections with the right and left hemispheres. Also, the front area of the Prefrontal cortex and it's temporal part are of bigger volume and are more organized than male's. This is why women are generally more skilled at multitasking, are more cautious. . Now, this doesn't mean men are more stupid(Stephen Hawking, Neil Degrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, Carl Sagan, Leonardo Da Vinci, etc.), because that is not true, men have a lot of connections between the front and back of the brain while women have a horizontal connection. The reason men have larger brains is because they are organized differently. There is no scientific proof backing that one sex is smarter than the other. Also, the statement, “no woman has been a significant original thinker in any of the world’s great philosophical traditions ...

Just saw in the news people believe that they have found the holy grail. A jewel encrusted golden chalice .. you can't be that stupid people .. seriously please?? The cup of a supposedly humble, poor man. Gold .. encrusted with jewels?? *sighs* The holy grail is the divine feminine. The holy "mother" that is the womb of creation, inside which the father creates! The "cup" which holds the "wine" of creation. That the church changed to "holy ghost" so they could oppress and control women. It's not a bloody cup! That's why there is no cup on Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper, because Mary sitting next to him is the holy grail.

To be straightforward--The Da Vinci Code is straight out of the pits of *** Dan Brown, the Christless author of The Da Vinci Code novel, says on his website ... "HOW MUCH OF THIS NOVEL IS TRUE? The Da Vinci Code is a novel and therefore a work of fiction. While the book's characters and their actions are obviously not real, the artwork, architecture, documents, and secret rituals depicted in this novel all exist (for example, Leonardo Da Vinci's paintings, the Gnostic Gospels, Hieros Gamos, etc.). These real elements are interpreted and debated by fictional characters. While it is my belief that some of the theories discussed by these characters may have merit, each individual reader must explore these characters' viewpoints and come to his or her own interpretations. My hope in writing this novel was that the story would serve as a catalyst and a springboard for people to discuss the important topi ...

The biggest obstacle in life to overcome is the obstacles that live deep from within us. We all search for our silver linings in life like lost geese in the fog, heedlessly pushing along without any worry at all about the hunters that rest below. Every single human being on the planet has some sort of artistic integrity that is unique to that individual in some form of way. Whether it's helping people, or entertaining them. This gives that person a voice, a purpose, a process of doing things, a way of living peacefully, and a perfect master of what they themselves can only perfect. That's character, that's art, that's life. Inspired from a quote by the brilliant Leonardo da Vinci I seen in Art Appreciation tonight.

The Organization by Craig Holland Vinnie Pierucci was nervous. And scared. As his limousine left Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, he questioned why the Big Boss had summoned him from halfway around the world. Since taking over Vegas he had done everything right: his books were clean, and all of the weekly payments had come in from around the city, like clockwork. True, when he got there he had to “retire” a couple of guys who attracted too much attention, but that was years ago. He waited in an anteroom. Soon a man in black appeared. “Cardinal Pierucci, the Holy Father will see you now.”
So many people spring to mind... Hmmm, either Jesus, Socrates, or Leonardo Da Vinci. I will say that the whole "son of God" thing is definitely giving Jesus that competitive edge. Plus l could ask him if he actually meant that "let he who is without sin cast the first stone" since so many modern Christians seem to think he didn't.

Sacred Water Sites Around the World Examples of Healing Waters ~ Deborah King Water is sacred to all life. The adult human body is around 60% water, with the brain being 75% water and the lungs nearly 90%. There is no life without water, which is why it’s the basis for so many creation stories in various cultures and traditions around the world. The Hindu holy books say that everyone on earth came out of the primordial sea. In the Bible, God stirs above the waters and creates a firmament to divide the waters in the act of creating our world. The Koran states: “We have created every living thing from water.” Where Does Your Bottled Water Come From? Have you ever thought about where your bottle of water comes from? Evian is bottled from the natural spring waters at Evians-les-Bains, a high-end spa south of Lake Geneva. The curative properties of the healing water are said to especially benefit digestive and metabolic conditions. If Pellegrino is your brand of choice, it comes from northern Italy at Sa ...

The reopening of the Mauritshuis Museum! Het culturele hoogtepunt voor 2014 volgens Will Gompertz, arts editor (van oa het boek 'Dat kan mijn kleine zusje ook'). Over the past 18 months, a world tour has been taking place that makes those undertaken by The Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen seem like sideshow. Millions of people from Kobe in Japan to Atlanta in Georgia have rocked up to see a group of superstars quite unlike any other. The stars in questions are paintings, or more specifically, some of the greatest masterpieces ever produced. Among their number is Jan Steen's As the Old Sing, So Pipe the Young and The Goldfinch by Carel Fabritius (the name and plot device for Donna Tartt's 2013 novel). But the real showstopper, the beautiful woman who has fronted the entire tour, is Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring, perhaps second only to Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa as the most famous work of art in the world. On 27 June 2014, she and the other superstars return home to The Hague where they will re ...

ACCUSATION OF INC: The image of Christ we see today is not the real image of Christ. It is only taken from the painting of Leonardo Da Vinci whose model was the same model used to paint the image of Judas. ANSWER: Da Vinci’s version of Christ was created on the 16th century, and no body really cares who is the model of his painting. But what Inc ministers did not tell is, there were already pictures of Christ before Da Vinci painted the Last Supper. The earliest painting of Christ was painted on 6th century and Da Vinci was not yet born to use the same model for Christ and for Judas. [reposted from: Riel Lopez]
Jackson State grad Daryl Jones is named All-Metro Coach of the Year after resuscitating the Callaway High School Football Program. When Coach Daryl Jones, Sr. married my work/study student Mona Lisa Walker (Please note the photo is of the original Mona Lisa and not Mrs. Mona Lisa Walker Jones) I was wondering whether he was a " Leonardo Da Vinci" and would produce a masterpiece. Well, 22 years later, they have a 20-year old son DJ (Daryl Jones Jr.) who goes into spring practice with a chance to be a top drawer running back at Jackson State University. While playing for his dad at Callaway High School,DJ was an above average football player and a Principal's List academic student. When JSU offered an academic scholarship and not an athletic scholarship, he bolted for Texas Southern University where he spent one year. Now, he is back at JSU and awaiting spring drills. Coincidentally, there is a head coach vacancy at Jackson State where his dad once served as Interim Head Coach when James Bell was fired. No ...
TOP 10 GENIUSES OF ALL TIME 1) Albert Einstein - Albert Einstein is a name that comes to mind first when thinking of geniuses. Einstein’s brain was found to be deficient in certain parts, but extraordinarily powerful in others. Another trait of Albert’s brain was the fact that he had a much larger corpus callosum than the average man. The corpus callosum connects the right and left hemispheres and allows them to successfully transfer information back and forth (communicate with one another). Einstein has received the Nobel Prize in physics, was named “Person Of The Century” by Time Magazine, and has contributed phenomenal theories to the world of science (i.e. theory of relativity, unique field theory, etc). 2) Leonardo Da Vinci - Leonardo Da Vinci is considered one of the best painters of all time and possibly the most multi-talented man to have ever lived! Two of his works include: The Last Super & The Mona Lisa. Da Vinci was truly ahead of his time with ideas such as: a helicopter, a tank, sola ...

Beginning, Daguerreotype and Camera Obscure The Daguerreotype is considered the first photographic process, officially dates from 1839, and represents the formal start of the history of photography. Although the oldest preserved photograph knows as “View from the window at Le Gras”, you can see below these lines, dates from 1826 and is made with camera obscure. And in 1521, a pupil of Leonardo Da Vinci called Cesare Cesariano, wrote the first publication of the camera obscure. Also at that time already experimented with silver salts and their photosensitive properties. “View from the window at Le Gras” – Photograph oldest preserved. It can be understood that before the appearance of the daguerreotype in 1839, had already experimented with techniques to make photographs. The art of the daguerreotype was to form an image on a polished silver surface like a mirror. The developed image is formed from microscopic particles of an alloy of mercury and silver. The camera obscure was origi ...

The white version of Jesus Christ is actually the face of Cesare Borgia, painted by Leonardo Da Vinci on the behalf of pope Alexander VI, who was Cesare's father. He ordered that all paintings, carvings and scriptures depicting Jesus as Middle Eastern man be destroyed. He wanted people to believe that Jesus looked European because at the time they were fighting the Muslims who looked pretty much like Jesus. It was a political maneuver.
