- Between you and me, in a hundred words, where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?
- Well…big question. But to me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly the most popular, great painter of all time. The most beloved, his command of colour most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world, no one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world’s greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.

You are beautiful, strong, wise, and courageous. You do more than the average with no promise of anything in return. You deal with pain, heart ache, loneliness, and longing on a day-to-day basis and you don’t let it stand in your way. You have no idea what you’re worth because you ask for nothing in return. When you look in the mirror, you don’t feel the pride you should because you just simply expect it from yourself.
