Vincent Van Gogh was a Dutch post-impressionist painter and produced some of the greatest art the world has ever seen. Most of his paintings became famous after his death and he only sold one in his lifetime. He suffered from a mental illness at one point and did most of his creations while in a mental institution. Mental illness has constantly been on the minds of women in politics like Rosalynn Carter and Nancy Reagan who fought to increase its awareness. Below are a number of Van Gogh’s best quotes.

“What am I in the eyes of most people — a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person — somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then — even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart. That is my ambition, based less on resentment than on love in spite of everything, based more on a feeling of serenity than on passion. Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.”

“At present I absolutely want to paint a starry sky. It often seems to me that night is still more richly coloured than the day; having hues of the most intense violets, blues and greens. If only you pay attention to it you will see that certain stars are lemon-yellow, others pink or a green, blue and forget-me-not brilliance. And without my expatiating on this theme it is obvious that putting little white dots on the blue-black is not enough to paint a starry sky.”
