„Talent is cheap; dedication is expensive. It will cost you your life.“ The Agony and the Ecstasy

„One should not become an artist because he can, but because he must. It is only for those who would be miserable without it.“ The Agony and the Ecstasy

„Normal people do not create art.“ Lust for Life


„First, we think all truth is beautiful, no matter how hideous its face may seem. We accept all of nature, without any repudiation. We believe there is more beauty in a harsh truth than in a pretty lie, more poetry in earthiness than in all the salons of Paris. We think pain is good because it is the most profound of all human feelings. We think sex is beautiful even when portrayed by a harlot and a pimp. We put character above ugliness, pain above prettiness and hard, crude reality above all the wealth in France. We accept life in its entirety without making moral judgments. We think the prostitute is as good as the countess, the concierge as good as the general, the peasant as good as the cabinet minister, for they all fit into the pattern of nature and are woven into the design of life!“ Lust for Life

„To try to understand another human being, to grapple for his ultimate depths, that is the most dangerous of human endeavors.“ The Agony and the Ecstasy

„There's no love without pain.“ Lust for Life

„Art is amoral; so is life. For me there are no obscene pictures or books; there are only poorly conceived and poorly executed ones.“ Lust for Life


„You cannot be the good all the time — sometimes it is necessary to get angry.
[Vincent Van Gogh]“
Lust for Life

„Loneliness is a kind of prison.
[Vincent Van Gogh]“
Lust for Life

„He had been standing still; for an artist, one of the more painful forms of death.“

„He had always loved God. In his darkest hours he cried out, "God did not create us to abandon us.“ The Agony and the Ecstasy
