Vincent Van Gogh quotes

I see drawings and pictures in the poorest of huts and the dirtiest of corners.

I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.

I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process.

I wish they would only take me as I am.

How can I be useful, of what service can I be? There is something inside me, what can it be?

If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.

Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.

As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed.

I am still far from being what I want to be, but with God's help I shall succeed.

For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

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

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 dream of painting and then I paint my dream.

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.

It is better to be high-spirited even though one makes more mistakes, than to be narrow-minded and all too prudent.

The more I think about it, the more I realize there is nothing more artistic than to love others.

When I have a terrible need of - shall I say the word - religion. Then I go out and paint the stars.

Even the knowledge of my own fallibility cannot keep me from making mistakes. Only when I fall do I get up again.

What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?

The way to know life is to love many things.
