  • Leonardo da Vinci

    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.
