divine postman: they run around confused montaigne never giving a thought to their natural genius

divine postman: what a disgrace he must be to the gods, the cloud-gatherer in the mount of olympus must uproot him with lightning

aristotle: it is only when he knocks his head that he will learn

divine postman: man no longer trembles at the mighty sea or the height of the mountain top

leonardo: he must become a universal genius absorbing all of history
