Famous quotes containing the words family, van and/or gogh:

    With all the attention paid to your new baby, it’s easy for your own feelings and needs to get lost in the shuffle. Although all parents engage in some self-sacrifice for their children, keep in mind that your goal isn’t just to raise a happy, healthy child. You want that child to be part of a happy, healthy family as well.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    The first day that we landed upon that fatal shore
    The planters they came round us full twenty score or more,
    They rank’d us up like horses, and sold us out of hand
    Then yok’d us unto ploughs, my boys, to plow Van
    Dieman’s Land.
    —Unknown. Van Dieman’s Land (l. 9–12)

    It is not a certain conformity of manners that the painting of Van Gogh attacks, but rather the conformity of institutions themselves. And even external nature, with her climates, her tides, and her equinoctial storms, cannot, after van Gogh’s stay upon earth, maintain the same gravitation.
    Antonin Artaud (1896–1948)
