lifeofafes "There is no law governing all things."- Giordano Bruno. What Bruno described was the Renaissance in essence. Nothing is controllable, there is no laws to control nature,religion doesn't set any rules, this was an age during which men recognized that there was so much going on more than their self. That nothing was controllable, and now it was time to learn,instead of trying to constrict. 3y

Isaac Newton the world if full of people living day by day not knowing the true significance of why things are what they are and the meaning of their existence.

andreahershh @kianamatisonn & @mumu656 "since there is nothing so well worth having friends, never loose a chance to make them" Francesco Guicciardini. Dont ever loose a chance to make friends, because there is not much worth more than them!! They are the siblings you never had and always wished for! #mcdsphilophoto 3y

andreahershh "the more sand has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it" Niccolo Machiavelli. Along with age come wisdom and experience. this metaphor in the quote explains just that. As life goes on, we become more intellectual and everything begins to make sense. Experience, at the end of the road, becomes priceless. #mcdsphilophoto 3y

  •   gkramer95 I think the quote is saying that if you choose to live in a certain way, and make a habit of that lifestyle, than it can become the most favorable and agreeable for not only you, but other people as well. Whether that lifestyle is a positive or negative one, is up to you to decide 3y

lifeofafes "I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people." Madness, a concept that from the Middle Ages to Renaissance completely changed. What defined madness? In the Middle Ages, anything that was self thought,anything not taught by God, was considered crazy,and punished as so. In The Renaissance, the complete opposite the boundaries were what seemed crazy now, why follow rules when the human mind is unstoppable. This is what Isaac Newton was talking about,the Uncontrollable power of pushing the limits is for Newton the madness. Madness because it's unpredictable. 3y

  •   lifeofafes As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death." -Leonardo Da Vinci. The very essence of the Renaissance was the rebirth of the human mind. People were now stepping out of that constricted box that religion had made and realizing that there was so much more than just living a life for hoping to get a better one in the afterlife. I think that the very essence of this quote describes a lot of the Renaissance. Da Vinci, also known as the Renaissance man, with this quote described the new life of the Reinassance. 3y

People stopped looking for "The Good" people were not focus on their self beauty or anything they did,everything was focused to please God, to guarantee their salvation. Bacon philosophy was the philosophy of life of the time 3y

lifeofafes " For this fear of death is indeed the pretense of wisdom, and not real wisdom, being the appearance of knowing the unknown; since no one knows whether death, which they in their fear apprehend to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good."-Socrates Our perception of death is so grim so dark,but,even in death,nature reflects it's beauty. 3y
