Quote: Renaissance man

 "… an enduring European cultural model: the "Encyclopedic" or "Universal" man, personified by such figures as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Leibnitz, and Goethe. All cultures have their saints, their poets, and their sages; but a Leonardo da Vinci could appear only in Europe." – Mircea Eliade
