The odd things that famous people did
    2019-04-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Leonardo da Vinci and his sleep schedule

Da Vinci was a painter, an engineer, a writer, a sculptor, an inventor, an architect, a pioneer in exploring human anatomy, an avid animal lover and possibly one of the most famous vegetarians who ever lived. It seems that there’s nothing that this man did not do. Yet there was, it was sleeping. He wasn’t a fan of it and after conducting careful research and building up his knowledge, he started following the polyphasic sleep cycle. To put it in other words, Da Vinci’s sleep would consist of several short naps in each 24-hour period. Being The Renaissance man is not so easy.

Michelangelo and his hygiene

The Sistine Chapel in Vatican City might be celestial, but its creator, Michelangelo, one of the most important names in Western art’s history, was far from that. And for a simple reason, which is hygiene. Michelangelo slept with his clothes and boots on, without removing them for days. He avoided showering and even considered it a health hazard. Well, he might have had a point, because he lived until he was 89.

Virginia Woolf, Nietzsche and the standing desk

Even though these two figures don’t seem to have many things in common, the British modernist Virginia Woolf, together with the subversive German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche could see themselves working in a modern office as long as they would be provided with a standing desk. They both wrote while standing up, considering it to be the only proper way to achieve something of meaning.

Ludwig van Beethoven and the 60 coffee beans

Ludwig van Beethoven did write the glorious “Symphony No. 9,” which is now the anthem of European Union, while being already deaf, but, of course, that’s just the tip of the iceberg of his input into musical history. Yet stellar results require astronomic discipline. Each morning Beethoven counted by hand 60 coffee beans from which he would make his perfect cup of coffee. Also, in order to restart his creative muscles after writing too much music, he would pour cold water on his head.

不愛睡覺的達芬奇

達芬奇是一名畫家、工程師、作家、雕塑家、發明家、建筑師、探索人類解剖學的先驅、狂熱的動物愛好者,可能還是有史以來最有名的素食者之一。似乎沒有什么事情是達芬奇沒做過的。但是有一件事是達芬奇不愛做的,那就是睡覺。在進行了認真的研究,積累了相關知識之后,他開始采用多相睡眠法。換言之,達芬奇在一天時間內小睡多次但是每次只睡一點時間。做文藝復興代表人物可不是那么容易的事。

不講衛生的米開朗基羅

梵蒂岡的西斯廷教堂也許美得出塵脫俗,但它的創造者 —— 西方美術史上最重要的人物之一米開朗基羅卻遠非如此。原因很簡單,就是衛生問題。米開朗基羅穿著衣服和靴子睡覺,而且好多天都不脫。他很少洗澡,甚至認為洗澡會危害身體健康。不過,他的觀點也許有道理,因為他活到了89歲。

站著寫作的伍爾芙和尼采

盡管這兩個人似乎沒太多共同點,但英國現代主義作家弗吉尼亞?伍爾芙和德國顛覆性哲學家弗里德里希?尼采都適合有站立式辦公桌的現代辦公室。兩人都是站著寫作,他們認為只有這樣才能寫出有意義的東西。

貝多芬的60粒咖啡豆

貝多芬確實是在耳聾的狀態下寫出輝煌的《第九交響曲》的,這首曲子現已成為歐盟的盟歌。但這只是貝多芬的音樂軼事的冰山一角。誠然,只有極端的自律才能達到這樣非凡的成就。每天早上貝多芬都要用手精確地數出60粒咖啡豆來泡出完美的咖啡。此外,為了重啟因寫作了太多樂章而疲軟的創造力,他會往頭上澆冷水。
