Vincent Van Gogh: String of Failures

vincent van gogh

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

“What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?”

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

“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.”

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

“Close friends are truly life’s treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves. With gentle honesty, they are there to guide and support us, to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we are never really alone.”

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

“The heart of man is very much like the sea, it has its storms, it has its tides and in its depths it has its pearls too.”

“Art is to console those who are broken by life.”

“In the end we shall have had enough of cynicism, skepticism and humbug, and we shall want to live more musically.”

“Success is sometimes the outcome of a whole string of failures.”
