Quotes by Leonardo da Vinci :

Dominion over yourself
You will never have a greater or lesser dominion than that over yourself...the height of a man's success is gauged by his self-mastery; the depth of his failure by his self-abandonment. ...And this law is the expression of eternal justice. He who cannot establish dominion over himself will have no dominion over others.

They happened to things
It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
Leonardo da Vinci | motivational

Those who can smile in trouble
I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.
Leonardo da Vinci | strength

Well spent
Life well spent is long.
Leonardo da Vinci | life

Where you will long to return
For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.
