“As you cannot do what you want, want what you can do. ”

– Leonardo da Vinci


“You will never have a greater or lesser dominion than that over yourself…the height of a man’s success is gauged by his self-mastery; the depth of his failure by his self-abandonment. …And this law is the expression of eternal justice. He who cannot establish dominion over himself will have no dominion over others.”

-Leonardo da Vinci
