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 didn’t sleep at night for a long time but his sleep would consist of several naps every 24 hours.
The giant of the Russian literature, Lev Tolstoy not only wrote historically accurate books, but he himself became of historical importance. Despite coming from the highest layers of society, Tolstoy eventually started questioning the morality of society he lived in and started following his own path. He became a vegetarian wearing peasant clothes and shoes, which, despite not being too skilled, were made by himself.
The prominent French musician Erik Satie was a strange man. For starters, his eating habits were something else. He only ate food that was white, such as eggs, sugar, salt, coconuts, rice and similar. Each day he got up at 7:18 am and would have lunch strictly at 12:11. Then dinner at 7:16 pm and he would go to bed at 10:37 pm. And finally, Erik Satie even belonged to a religion that he himself founded.
The Sistine Chapel in Vatican City might be very beautiful, but its creator, Michelangelo, one of the most important names in Western art’s history, was far from that, and for a simple reason, 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 years old.
