Dear Friends,
Many years ago I came across the following English translation of a
Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) quotation:
"The science of mechanics is the noblest and above all others the most
seeing that by means of it all animated bodies which have movements
perform all their action."
Unfortunately I have lost track of the source, and now I am in urgent need
of it as a reference. Can anyone help?
Best regards
Rolf Moe-Nilssen

PS Maybe this quotation is of relevance to Urban Fraefel and others who
look for the roots of biomechanics.
