Sunday Quote

The air moves like a river and carries the clouds with it; just as running water carries all things that float upon it. This is proved because if the wind were to penetrate through the air and drive the clouds these clouds would be condensed between the air and the moving force and would take a lateral impress from the two opposing extremeties, just as wax does when pressed between the fingers.
- Leonardo Da Vinci, The Notebooks
