I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart.


The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.


Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes on Love

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.


What is done in love is done well.


One may have a blazing hearth in one’s soul and yet no one ever came to sit by it. Passers-by see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on their way.


Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes about Nature

I devour nature ceaselessly. I exaggerate, sometimes I make changes in the subject; but still I don’t invent the whole picture. On the contrary, I find it already there. It’s a question of picking out what one wants from nature.


When I have a terrible need of – shall I say the word – religion. Then I go out and paint the stars.


I myself am quite absorbed by the delicate yellow, delicate soft green, delicate violet of a ploughed and weeded piece of soil.


Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes about Writing

There is no blue without yellow and without orange, and if you put in blue, then you must put in yellow, and orange too, mustn’t you? Oh well, you will tell me that what I write to you are only banalities.


The great artist is the simplifier.


Seeing that I am so busily occupied with myself just now, I want to try to paint my self-portrait in writing.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes about Art

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


Your profession is not what brings home your weekly paycheck, your profession is what you’re put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling.


For great things do not done just happen by impulse but are a succession of small things linked together.


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

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes Normality

Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes on Sunflowers

I am painting with the same enthusiasm as a Marseillaise eats bouillabaisse … I am painting big sunflowers.


The sunflower is mine, in a way.


I’m now painting with all the elan of a Marseillais eating soup, which won’t surprise you when I tell you I’m painting large sunflowers. The idea? To decorate the studio, now there’s hope of Gauguin living here. I aim at a dozen panels of sunflowers in the room I’ve set aside for Gauguin.


I am working with the enthusiasm of a man from Marseilles eating bouillabaisse, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to you because I am busy painting huge sunflowers.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes on Painting

I experience a period of frightening clarity in those moments when nature is so beautiful. I am no longer sure of myself, and the paintings appear as in a dream.


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


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.


When I have a terrible need of – shall I say the word – religion. Then I go out and paint the stars.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes about Work

Whatever plan one makes, there is a hidden difficulty somewhere.


For great things do not done just happen by impulse but are a succession of small things linked together.


I work even in the middle of the day, in the full sunshine, and I enjoy it like a cicada.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes about God

It always strikes me, and it is very peculiar, that, whenever we see the image of indescribable and unutterable desolation—of loneliness, poverty, and misery, the end and extreme of things—the thought of God comes into one’s mind.


But I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.


I cannot help thinking that the best way of knowing God is to love many things. Love this friend, this person, this thing, whatever you like, and you will be on the right road to understanding Him better.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes on Feelings

I feel the need of relations and friendship, of affection, of friendly intercourse…. I cannot miss these things without feeling, as does any other intelligent man, a void and a deep need.


Let’s not forget that the little emotions are the great captains of our lives and we obey them without realizing it.


There is something intimate about painting I cannot explain to you ? but it is so delightful just for expressing one’s feelings.


I am unable to describe exactly what is the matter with me; now and then there are horrible fits of anxiety, apparently without cause, or otherwise a feeling of emptiness and fatigue in the head.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes about Books

To try to understand the real significance of what the great artists, the serious masters, tell us in their masterpieces, that leads to God; one man wrote or told it in a book; another, in a picture.


It is with the reading of books the same as with looking at pictures; one must, without doubt, without hesitations, with assurance, admire what is beautiful.


Christ alone, of all the philosophers, magicians, etc., has affirmed eternal life as the most important certainty, the infinity of time, the futility of death, the necessity and purpose of serenity and devotion. He lived serenely, as an artist greater than all other artists, scorning marble and clay and paint, working in the living flesh. In other words, this peerless artist, scarcely conceivable with the blunt instrument of our modern, nervous and obtuse brains, made neither statues nor paintings nor books. He maintained in no uncertain terms that he made … living men, immortals.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes Lying

My great longing is to make those very incorrectnesses, those deviations, remodellings, changes in reality, so that they may become, yes, lies if you like – but truer than the literal truth.


Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.


It is a sad and very melancholy scene, which must strike everyone who knows and feels that we also have to pass one day through the valley of the shadow of death, and “que la fin de la vie human, ce sont des larmes out des cheveux blancs.” What lies beyond this is a great mystery that only God knows, but He has revealed absolutely through His word that there is a resurrection of the dead.


If only we try to live sincerely, it will go well with us, even though we are certain to experience real sorrow, and great disappointments, and also will probably commit great faults and do wrong things, but it certainly is true, thatit is better to be high-spirited, even though one makes more mistakes, than to be narrow-minded and all too prudent. It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love, is well done.

Inspirational Quotes by Vincent Van Gogh

Everyone who works with love and with intelligence finds in the very sincerity of his love for nature and art a kind of armor against the opinions of other people.


Your profession is not what brings home your weekly paycheck, your profession is what you’re put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling.


But I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.


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

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes on Dreams

The best pictures are always those one dreams of when one is smoking a pipe in bed, but which never get done. But still one ought to try, however incompetent one may feel before the unspeakable perfection and radiant splendour of nature.


I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.


…to look at the stars always makes me dream, as simply as I dream over the black dots of a map representing towns and villages. Why, I ask myself, should the shining dots of the sky not be as accessible as the black dots on the map of France?


I confess I do not know why, but looking at the stars always makes me dream.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes on Education

It interests me tremendously to make copies… I started it by chance and I find it teaches me things.


I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.


In a sense I’m glad that I’ve never learned how to paint.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes about Mistakes

If one wants to be active, one must not be afraid of going wrong, one must not be afraid of making mistakes now and then. Many people think that they will become good just by doing no harm — but that’s a lie…. That way lies stagnation, mediocrity.


It is better to be high-spirited even though one makes more mistakes, than to be narrow-minded and all too prudent.


But after all I find in my work an echo of what struck me. I see that nature has told me something, has spoken to me, and that I have put it down in shorthand. In my shorthand there may be words that cannot be deciphered. There may be mistakes or gap


Even the knowledge of my own fallibility cannot keep me from making mistakes. Only when I fall do I get up again.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes on Reality

To express hope by some star, the eagerness of a soul by a sunset radiance. Certainly there is nothing in that of stereoscopic realism, but is it not something that actually exists?


It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality is more important than the feeling for pictures.


My great longing is to make those very incorrectnesses, those deviations, remodellings, changes in reality, so that they may become, yes, lies if you like – but truer than the literal truth.


Accurate drawing, accurate colour, is perhaps not the essential thing to aim at, because the reflection of reality in a mirror, if it could be caught, colour and all, would not be a picture at all, no more than a photograph.

Motivational Quotes by Vincent Van Gogh

For great things do not done just happen by impulse but are a succession of small things linked together.


Your profession is not what brings home your weekly paycheck, your profession is what you’re put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling.


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.


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

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes about Victory

Nature always begins by resisting the artist, but he who really takes it seriously does not allow that resistance to put him off his stride; on the contrary, it is that much more of a stimulus to fight for victory.


What I need is courage, and this often fails me. And it is also a fact that since my disease, when I am in the fields I am overwhelmed by a feeling of loneliness to such a horrible extent that I shy away from going out. But this will change all the same as time goes on. Only when I stand a painting before my easel do I feel somewhat alive. Never mind, this is going to change too, for now my health is so good that I suppose the physical part of me will gain the victory.


The victory one would gain after a whole life of work and effort is better than one that is gained sooner.

Vincent Van Gogh Quotes on Humanity

I hope I shall be able to make some drawings in which there is something human.


I tried to express through red and green the terrible passions of humanity.
