2. LEONARDO DA VINCI also felt that continual study was the road to perfection. To improve his painting, he studied the science of optics and even dissected the human body. He had great contempt for painters who lacked knowledge of anatomy and he said that the nude figures they drew looked like sacks of walnuts. According to Charlemagne Leonardo da Vinci Charles Darwin 3. CHARLES DARWIN was one of the most patient stu dents of all time. For 20 years he worked night and day reading and collecting experimental proof for his monu mental work on evolution, The Origin of Species. He once said, "When I am obliged to give up observation and experiment, I shall die." 4. THE FACT that a man should perfect himself in his craft by constant study applies to insurance men, too. For this reason, The Travelers has established schools where representatives can take free courses covering all types of insurance; and regularly The Travelers Companies inform agents and brokers about developments in the insurance business. Thus, The Travelers men acquire a far broader knowledge of insurance than they could acquire in the school of experience alone; and this knowl edge can be of great help to you. Moral: Insure in The Travelers. All forms of insurance. The Travelers Insurance Company, The Travelers Indemnity Company, The Travelers Fire Insurance Company, Hartford, Connecticut. 1. CHARLEMAGNE believed that only by constant study could a man become a good ruler and a wise man. He brought Alcuin, the greatest teacher of the age, to his court to instruct him and the nobility in civil law and statesmanship. And in his zeal to learn everything with all speed, he even mastered a form of shorthand.
