Van Gogh on Creativity


I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.


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

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


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


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


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

The way to know life is to love many things.


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