When God supports us, illness is no misfortune, especially when we get new ideas and new intentions in those days of illness that would not have come to us if what not been ill, and when we achieve clearer faith and stronger trust in God.

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 corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.

Van Gogh moved to Paris in 1886 and lived with his brother Theo while learning about contemporary art.

Amid his mental turbulence, Van Gogh painted 'The Starry Night' while staying in a mental asylum. It's one of his most famous pieces.

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 top of the chimney, and go on their way.

Well, being sorry and giving up doesn’t help us on; the only thing to do is to push forward.

Van Gogh didn't start painting until his late twenties; much of his best work was created during the last two years of his life.

And when I read, and really I do not read so much, only a few authors, - a few men that I discovered by accident - I do this because they look at things in a broader, milder and more affectionate way than I do, and because they know life better, so that I can learn from them.

Vincent Van Gogh is known to have lost part of his ear, amid intense inner turbulence and conflict with Gauguin.

But you must love with a high, serious intimate sympathy, with a will, with intelligence, and you must always seek to know more thoroughly, better, and more.

Van Gogh's last missive to his brother concluded with the haunting phrase 'This is the end. Farewell.'

In Antwerp I did not even know what the impressionists were, now I have seen them and though not being one of the club yet I have much admired certain.
