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

    It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to.... The feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.
    Vincent Van Gogh (1853–1890)

    One could love reason like an Encyclopaedist and still be favorably inclined toward mysticism. Throughout the ages, up to the eyes of van Gogh, when he looked at a coffee pot or a garden path, mysticism has expanded the human realm by all sorts of threshold experiences.
    Robert Musil (1880–1942)

    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)

    [W]ith them we’ll beat little Van, Van, Van is a used up man.
    State of Indiana, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    An editor is someone who separates the wheat from the chaff and then prints the chaff.
    Adlai Stevenson (1900–1965)

    I will be the gladdest thing
    Under the sun!
    I will touch a hundred flowers
    And not pick one.
    —Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)
