And you who think to reveal the figure of a man in words, with his limbs arranged in all their different attitudes, banish the idea from you, for the more minute your description the more you will confuse the mind of the reader and the more you will lead him away from the knowledge of the thing described. It is necessary therefore for you to represent and describe.
The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci, Vol. I, Ch. III
Reynal & Hitchcock, New York, 1938
