Vincent van Gogh on Love and Women
The Complete Letters of Vincent van Gogh L164, Written Dec 21, 1881 (NY Graphic Society, 1958), I:285-86.
I cannot live without love, without a woman. I would not value life at all if there were not something infinite, something deep, something real. Every woman at every age can, if she loves and is a good woman, give a man, not the infinity of a moment, but a moment of infinity.
