Vincent van Gogh Profile


  • "I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate."
    Vincent van Gogh
  • "I am still far from being what I want to be, but with God's help I shall succeed."
    Vincent van Gogh
  • "You can't be at the pole and the equator at the same time. You must choose your own line, as I hope to do, and it will probably be color."
    Vincent van Gogh
  • "I am not strictly speaking mad, for my mind is absolutely normal in the intervals, and even more so than before. But during the attacks it is terrible - and then I lose consciousness of everything. But that spurs me on to work and to seriousness, as a miner who is always in danger makes haste in what he does."
    Vincent van Gogh
  • "I am risking my life for my work, and half my reason has gone."
    Vincent van Gogh
  • "Poetry surrounds us everywhere, but putting it on paper is, alas, not so easy as looking at it."
    Vincent van Gogh
  • "The work is an absolute necessity for me. I can't put it off, I don't care for anything but the work; that is to say, the pleasure in something else ceases at once and I become melancholy when I can't go on with my work. Then I feel like a weaver who sees that his threads are tangled, and the pattern he had on the loom is gone to hell, and all his thought and exertion is lost."
    Vincent van Gogh
  • "What am I in the eyes of most people.. a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person.. somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then.. even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart."
    Vincent van Gogh
