Van Gogh in Paris, 1886-1888 | Landscapes ⁽²⁾

  • There is but one Paris and however hard living may be here, and if it became worse and harder even-the French air clears up the brain and does good-a world of good.
  • An artist needn't be a clergyman or a churchwarden, but he certainly must have a warm heart for his fellow men.
  • The diseases that we civilized people labor under most are melancholy and pessimism.
  • If ... boyhood and youth are but vanity, must it not be our ambition to become men?
  • To do good work one must eat well, be well housed, have one's fling from time to time, smoke one's pipe, and drink one's coffee in peace.
  • I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate.
  • A good picture is equivalent to a good deed.
