25 Quotes from Vincent Van Gogh


Vincent Van Gogh is one of my favorite artists. I have had the opportunity to visit the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam several times and always walk away inspired by his creativity, productivity, and personal story.

His words are equally inspiring. The following quotes are frequently attributed to him. I’m not sure whether he said them all or not, but I treasure them nonetheless.


“I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.” –Vincent Van Gogh


“Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow.” –Vincent Van Gogh


“I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic then to love people.” –Vincent Van Gogh


“What is done in love is done well.” –Vincent Van Gogh


“Art is to console those who are broken by life.” –Vincent Van Gogh
