"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

Happy birthday, van Gogh.

van Gogh, Self-portrait (detail), 1889

Vincent van Gogh was born on this day in 1853.

As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed.  I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate.

Vincent van Gogh
