Starry Starry Night

Listen to Josh Groban sing Starry Starry Night (link: scroll down page) while perusing inspiring quotes and art of Vincent van Gogh. Music and art both raise our vibrational frequency.

Starry Night
Quotes from Vincent van Gogh  

 The best way to know God is to love many things.

Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.

As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed.

The more I think about it, the more I realize there is nothing more artistic than to love others.

 
For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

Joseph Roulin (The Postman)
Conscience is a man’s compass.

The heart of man is very much like the see, it has its storms, it has its tides and in its depths it has its pearls too.  

Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. 

It is a pity that, as one gradually gains experience, one loses one’s youth.

But for one’s health as you say, it is very necessary to work in the garden and see the flowers growing. 

In my view, I am often immensely rich, not in money, but (although just now perhaps not all the time) rich because I have found my metier, something I can devote myself to heart and soul and that gives inspiration and meaning to my life. 

We are surrounded by poetry on all sides…

How right it is to love flowers and the greenery of pines and ivy and hawthorn hedges; they have been with us from the very beginning. 

Your profession is not what brings home your weekly paycheck, your profession is what you’re put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling. 

There is peace even in the storm.

When I have a terrible need of – shall I say the word – religion, then I go out and paint the stars. 

If one loves nature one finds beauty everywhere. 

Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.
