Vincent van Gogh
I confess I do not know why, but looking at the stars always makes me dream.
If one is master of one thing and understands one thing well, one has at the same time, insight into and understanding of many things.
I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate.
For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
Great things are done by a seris of small things brought together.
If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
One may have a blazing hearth in one's soul and yet no one ever come 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.
Well, the fact is that one cannot retrace one's steps, and the steps one has taken greatly influence the future.
Art is something greater and higher than our own skill or knowledge or learning. That art is something which, though produced by human hands, is now wrought by hands alone, but wells up from a deeper source, from a man's soul.
