Small rooms or dwellings help the mind to concentrate itself; large rooms are a source of distraction.
Note that I skipped a whole tonne of Da Vinci’s longer notes, which can be summarised as: “painting is great, poetry is rubbish, music and sculpture are somewhere in between”.
So, today is (sort of) Leonardo Da Vinci’s birthday. I consider him to be a pioneer of the note content type (AKA somewhere between a tweet and a blog post, usually with no title). So, to celebrate his birthday, I’m going to be posting some of his (translated) notes from Thoughts on Art and Life.
The source text I’m using is the gutenberg txt translation.
