Copied into my notebook-of-quotes on April 23, 2000 from
“How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci, Seven Steps to Genius Every Day"
        by Michael J. Gelb:

1.  Curiosita – an insatiably curious approach to life
               and an unrelenting quest for continuous learning.

2.  Dimostrazione – a commitment to test knowledge through experience,
               persistence, and a willingness to learn from mistakes.

3.  Sensazione – the continual refinement of the senses,
               especially sight, as the means to enliven experience.

4.  Stumato (literally “going up in smoke”) – a willingness to
               embrace ambiguity, paradox, and uncertainty.

5.  Arte / Scienza – the development of the balance between
               science and art, logic and imagination.

6.  Corporalita – the cultivation of grace, ambidexterity, fitness, and poise.

7.  Connessione – a recognition of and appreciation
               for the interconnectedness of all things and phenomena.

I added this one:
8.  Amore incondizionato - to love unconditionally.

I was looking at a library book recently about collage.  Very intriguing.
So I got out my scissors and glue (gel medium = glue for grown-ups)
and ended up illustrating the steps.  No pretensions here; just me playing.
