Quote of the day

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 never will 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.

Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest comers. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.”

Vincent Van Gogh, in a letter to his brother

    1. Nurse Kelly,

      Wow. I’ll have to catch that one. It looks gorgeous.

      BTW, if the exhibit Van Gogh Alive comes to your area, GO. I loved it when it toured Charlotte. High-def, wall-sized images of Van Gogh’s most famous pieces really do make his work come alive. Plus, there are actors portraying various people from the artist’s life. Very moving.
