Leonardo Da Vinci Quotes

Leonardo da Vinci isn’t usually quoted when it comes to personal finance; I don’t think he really cared for the topic very much. However, I’ve been doing some reading about him and I really enjoyed these quotes attributed to him and wanted to remember them:

  • “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
  • “I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”
  • “It’s easier to resist at the beginning than at the end.”
  • “He who wishes to be rich in a day will be hanged in a year.”


  1. Great quotes & words to live by. I feel that people are always trying to reinvent the wheel on how to live but the tried and true methods always apply.

  2. Not a da Vonci quote, but my favorite artist quote is: “Everything you can imagine is real.” – Pablo Picasso

  3. I like Da Vinci’s quote to Mona Lisa – “What the hella you a smilin about”?
