“Wherever the oppression of bare-lipped sneers threaten the sovereignty of a chin, wherever the strand that binds man to nature is strained, wherever history is trimmed to satisfy the whims of the trimmer, we will be there. We are the whisker that will not be plucked. We are Beardivism.”
“A beard is only as long as its shortest whisker; progress requires the cultivation of all constituents.”
Polymath. Renaissance Man. Multipotentialite. Homo Universalis. Call him what you will, da Vinci is the archetype by which creative genius is measured. An unquenchable curiosity lead da Vinci to pursue and excel at painting, sculpting, architecture, music, math, engineering, inventing, anatomy, geology, cartography, botany and writing. Where the world today would undoubtedly prescribe a pill in the face of such unbridled multifarious imagination, da Vinci’s predilections flourished under the admiration and support of his contemporary peers and noblemen. For his perpetual investigation of all things both physical and metaphysical, including the wild frontiers of chin fashion, we hereby name Leonardo da Vinci a patently protean Beard of Action.
