"I must continue to follow the path I take now. If I do nothing, if I study nothing, if I cease searching, then, woe is me, I am lost. That is how I look at it — keep going, keep going come what may. But what is your final goal, you may ask. That goal will become clearer, will emerge slowly but surely, much as the rough draught turns into a sketch, and the sketch into a painting through the serious work done on it, through the elaboration of the original vague idea and through the consolidation of the first fleeting and passing thought".

“Green Wheat Fields, Auvers”, 1890, Vincent van Gogh.
"Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum."
Happy birthday, Vincent van Gogh (March 30, 1853—July 29, 1890)
"I hope to depart in no other way than looking back with love and wistfulness and thinking, oh paintings that I would have made."
"I dream my painting, and then I paint my dream."
Oh my Gogh
"I long so much to make beautiful things. But beautiful things require effort and disappointment and perseverance."
Vincent van Gogh
