Van Gogh: His Words

ByAnn Kannings

This book is a collection of 121 fundamental quotes and aphorisms of Vincent van Gogh. It grants his reflections on subjects ranging from Art and Painting to God and Love: "I dream my painting and I paint my dream." "I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things." "I am always doing what I cannot do yet, in order to learn how to do it." "I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart." "I am still far from being what I want to be, but with God's help I shall succeed." "I can't change the fact that my paintings don't sell. But the time will come when people will recognize that they are worth more than the value of the paints used in the picture." "I confess I do not know why, but looking at the stars always makes me dream." "I don't know anything with certainty, but seeing the stars makes me dream. A good picture is equivalent to a good deed." "Admire as much as you can. Most people do not admire enough."
