Included in the magnificent Royal Collection at Windsor Castle is a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci of a dissected human heart, with this inscription underneath: "O writer! What words can you find to describe the whole arrangement of the heart as perfectly as is done in this drawing? My advice is not to trouble yourself with words unless you are speaking to the blind."
