“Everything is permitted. Isn’t that your Motto?”
“The life of an assassin is pain. You suffer it, you inflict it, you watch it happen in the hope that you can make it disappear in time.”
Faulkner: For the king?

Leonardo da Vinci
Red Chalk on paper | ca. 1512
attributed to Francesco Melzi
562 years ago today, Leonardo was born in Anchiano, a tiny settlement outside of Vinci, and it was recorded by his grandfather Antonio da Vinci:
"1452. There was born to me a grandson, the son of Ser Piero my son, on the 15th day of April, a Saturday, at the 3rd hour [10.30pm] of the night. He bears the name Lionardo."
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEONARDO!
