Vincent van Gogh

I really love art and so I thought to make a mytake about this great painter.

Vincent van Gogh

Most people do know Vincent van Gogh as the great 19th century Dutch painter who has painted more then 800 paintings and cut off part of his ear.

Many of his Works are famous (…) but less known are the things he has said or has written.

Van Gogh was a passionate man who was able to appreciate true beauty and understand reality of life.

Let his paintings amaze you and words inspire you!

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

One must work and dare if one really wants to live.

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.

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.

I would rather die of passion than of boredom.

The more I think it over, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.

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

The way to know life is to love many things.

Love always brings difficulties, that is true, but the good side of it is that it gives energy.

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