Letters to Theo

some quotes from my inspiration, Vincent van Gogh
  •  There may be a great fire in our soul, yet no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a wisp of smoke coming through the chimney. (July 1880)
  • I am getting to be like a dog, I feel that the future will probably make me more ugly and rough, and I foresee that "a certain poverty" will be my fate, but, but, I shall be a painter. (December 1883)
  • I have nature and art and poetry. If that is not enough what is? (January 1874)
  •  How rich art is. If one can only remember what one has seen, one is never empty of thoughts or truly lonely, never alone. (November 1878)
