Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simon
known best as simply Michelangelo
(6 March 1475 – 18 February 1564)

To his final day, Michelangelo tried to live up to his life motto:
the greatest danger, he said, “is not that we aim too high and miss it, but hat we aim too low and reach it”
-A Pilgrimage to Eternity (TImothy Egan)
