Vincent Van Gogh: "I put my heart and soul into my work, and I have lost my mind in the process"..

▻ There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.
▻ The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.
▻ I put my heart and soul into my work, and I have lost my mind in the process.
Ho messo il cuore e l'anima nel mio lavoro, e ho perso la testa nel processo.
▻ It is looking at things for a long time that ripens you and gives you a deeper meaning.
▻ I would rather die of passion than of boredom.
▻ If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
▻ I don’t know anything with certainty, but seeing the stars makes me dream.

▻ I dream my painting and I paint my dream.

▻ I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.

▻ In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing.

▻ I am always doing what I cannot do yet, in order to learn how to do it.
▻ When I have a terrible need of - shall I say the word - religion. Then I go out and paint the stars.

▻ I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart.

▻ If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.

▻ The beginning is perhaps more difficult than anything else, but keep heart, it will turn out all right.

▻ If one is master of one thing and understands one thing well, one has at the same time, insight into and understanding of many things.

▻ Close friends are truly lifes treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves.
