LEONARDO DA VINCI

“I obey Thee, Lord, first for the love I, in all reason, owe Thee; secondly, because Thou can shorten or prolong the lives of men.” (Richter, 1883, P. 237)

"Thou, O God, sell us all good things at the price of labour." (Ibid., 237)

“O admirable Justice, Thou First Mover; Thou hast not wished  that any force should fail the order or quality of its necessary effects.” (Ibid., 237)

“The body is subject to heaven and heaven to the Spirit.” (Ibid.,238)

“You think that the body is a wonderful work. In reality this is nothing compared to the soul that inhabits in that structure...It is the work of God.” (Ibid.,238)

“A lie is a terrible thing. Even if it spoke great things about God it would take away from God’s grace.” (Ibid., 242)

“The works of God are appreciated best by other creators.” (Richter, 1977, 387)
