Happy Birthday, Leonardo

Leonardo, Portrait of a Man in Red Chalk, 1512


Leonardo da Vinci was born on this day in 1452.

Why seek to embarrass the artist with vanities foreign to his quietness? Know you not that certain sciences require the whole man, leaving no part of him at leisure for your trifles?
