Over 500 years ago, Leonardo Da Vinci set out on a mission to learn everything there was to learn. He was obsessed with gaining more knowledge because he wanted to do what no one had dared do before.
And, beyond painting some of history's most famous paintings, he's touched our modern life in innumerable ways, from engineering to mathematics, visual illusion to artistry, architecture to anatomy – the list goes on.
He was driven by an insatiable hunger to think new thoughts and bring new things into being. His philosophy was that it's only through observation that we can find out the truth – and so he spent his entire life observing and learning more about the world.
This is one of my all-time favourite quotes because, historically, we've constructed learning with the assumption that it's a dry, staid affair that's best conducted in quiet tones and ruled by an unemotional consideration of the facts.
But I think that Da Vinci had the right idea – true learning arises from being confused and perplexed because that evokes the real questions that we can easily spend a lifetime trying to answer.
