You: yeah I left Mallory a Renaissance man last night but her mom found him
Friend: Very class my friend...
Some renaissance men of great repute include Leonardo Da Vinci and Goethe.
If you try and think of examples of Renaissance men, remember that it is not enough that they have brilliant minds (hence Einstein is out), nor is it enough that they are fine sportsmen (hence no Carl Lewis) or are well hung and virile (so no Shergar) and nor is it sufficient that they are musically gifted (so we omit Beethoven). It is a requirement that they are talented in ALL these areas.
I myself am a renaissance man, as I am a fine athelete, an excellent scholar, have an ear for music a talent for art and a way with the ladies.
#2: "True, he is gifted at sports, academia and the arts."
#1: "Yes, he's a true renaissance man!"
Man: "Hey baby, wanna get a drink - I'm a real renaissance man!"
Woman: "Ooooh, OK!"
2. a man who does everything and does it well
note: the renaissance was a period of enlightenment among the common people where great strides were taken to advancing knowledge for the purpose of bettering society
