Things said by Vincent Van Gogh...

One may have a blazing hearth in one's soul and yet no one ever comes to sit by it. Passersby see only a whisp of smoke rising from the chimney and continue on their way.

The fisherman knows that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reasons for staying ashore.

I am always doing what I cannot do yet, in order to learn how to do it.

In a certain way I am glad I have not learned painting. (He attended art training for a brief time, but split with his teacher over artistic differences.)

I tell you, the more I think, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.
