Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890)

  • What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
  • Love is eternal — the aspect may change, but not the essence There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love as there is in an unlighted lamp and one that is burning. The lamp was there and was a good lamp, but now it is shedding light too, and that is its real function. And love makes one calmer about many things, and that way, one is more fit for one’s work.
  • One may have a blazing hearth in one’s soul and yet no one ever comes to sit by it. Passersby see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on the way.
  • Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
