Famous quotes by van gogh:

    When van Gogh paints sunflowers, he reveals, or achieves, the vivid relation between himself, as man, and the sunflower, as sunflower, at that quick moment of time. His painting does not represent the sunflower itself. We shall never know what the sunflower itself is. And the camera will visualize the sunflower far more perfectly than van Gogh can.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    If ... boyhood and youth are but vanity, must it not be our ambition to become men?
    —Vincent Van Gogh (1853–1890)
