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

    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)

    An artist needn’t be a clergyman or a churchwarden, but he certainly must have a warm heart for his fellow men.
    —Vincent Van Gogh (1853–1890)

    English general and singular terms, identity, quantification, and the whole bag of ontological tricks may be correlated with elements of the native language in any of various mutually incompatible ways, each compatible with all possible linguistic data, and none preferable to another save as favored by a rationalization of the native language that is simple and natural to us.
    —Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
