on Thursday March 23rd, 2017, By Priyanka Gandhi

Last words by Leonardo da Vinci while dying in the arms of King Francis, the King of France:

I have offended God and Mankind because my work did not reach the quality it should have.”


Leonardo Da Vinci died on 2nd May 1519. Records show that he died in the arms of King Francis, one of his closest friends after years of struggling with paralysis. Countless experts have studied the life and works of this extraordinary man who came from a broken household; lived an ascetic lifestyle and still represents the highest excellence all of us lesser mortals strive to achieve — to be an intellectually, creatively, and emotionally well-rounded person.He was an  individual most worthy of the title “genius” in the fields of both science and art:

About Leonardo da Vinci:

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was born on 15th April 1452. He was one of the greatest creative minds of the Italian Renaissance, hugely influential as an artist and sculptor. Leonardo- who painted the eternally mysterious Mona Lisa, created visionary anatomical drawings long before medical anatomy existed, made observations of bird flight in greater detailed than any previous scientist, mastered engineering, architecture, mathematics, botany, and cartography, might as well be considered history’s first true scientist long have been regarded as exceptional forms of art and are appreciated by the world even today. His last words prove his groundedness and establish the fact that there is no limit to creativity and improvement.
