Art Quote of the Day

” In my opinion, I am often as rich as Croesus, not in money, but (although it doesn’t happen every day ) rich, because I have found in my work something to which I can devote myself heart and soul, and which gives inspiration and significance to life. Of course my moods vary, but there is an average of serenity. I have a sure faith in art,a sure confidence that it is a powerful stream, which bears a man to harbour ,though he himself must do his bit too; and at all events I think it such a great blessing, when a man has found his work, that I cannot count myself among the unfortunate. I mean , I may be in certain relatively great difficulties, and there may be gloomy days in my life , but I shouldn’t want to be counted among the unfortunate nor would it be correct.”

Vincent Van Gogh
