Da Vinci Bio Info  http://www-gap.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/Mathematicians/Leonardo.html

"The merit of painting lies in the exactness of reproduction. Painting is a science and all sciences are based on mathematics. No human enquiry can be a science unless it pursues its path through mathematical exposition and demonstration." 

"The supreme misfortune is when theory outstrips performance."

"You do ill if you praise, but worse if you censure, what you do not understand "  DaVinci
