if your hearts are ruled
as is the universe, by Love!“

: How happy is mankind
if the love that orders the stars above
rules, too, in your hearts.

si uestros animos amor
quo caelum regitur regat!

„Blinding ignorance does mislead us. O! Wretched mortals, open your eyes!“

—  Leonardo Da Vinci Italian Renaissance polymath 1452 - 1519

The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci (1883), XIX Philosophical Maxims. Morals. Polemics and Speculations.
Kontext: Blind ignorance misleads us thus and delights with the results of lascivious joys. Because it does not know the true light. Because it does not know what is the true light. Vain splendour takes from us the power of being.... behold! for its vain splendour we go into the fire, thus blind ignorance does mislead us. That is, blind ignorance so misleads us that... O! wretched mortals, open your eyes.
