"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

Pampaloni, Leonardo, 1832

The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.  One has no right to love or hate anything if one has not acquired a thorough knowledge of its nature.  Great love springs from great knowledge of the beloved object, and if you know it but little will you be able to to love it or not at all.

Leonardo da Vinci
