Van Gogh in the Morning

Portions of letters to Theo from Vincent Van Gogh; brothers:

"Am often sketching till late at night, to record some souvenirs and strengthen my thoughts, which are spontaneously aroused when I see things".

"So what do you want? Does what happens inside show on the outside? There is such a great fire in one's soul, and yet nobody ever comes to warm themselves there, and passersby see nothing but a little smoke coming from the chimney, and go on their way".

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

“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.”
