|Letter to Théo (July 1880),*
I think that everything that is really good and beautiful, the inner, moral, spiritual and sublime beauty in men and their works, comes from God, and everything that is bad and evil in the works of men and in men is not from God, and God does not approve of it. But I cannot help thinking that the best way of knowing God is to love many things. Love this friend, this person, this thing, whatever you like, and you will be on the right road to understanding Him better, that is what I keep telling myself. But you must love with a sublime, genuine, profound sympathy, with devotion, with intelligence, and you must try all the time to understand Him more, better and yet more. That will lead to God, that will lead to an unshakeable faith.
* Written by Vincent to Théo

|For Vincent and Theo*
Whose undying love and loyalty for art
goes beyond what flourished
in the minds and hearts
of those who know there is more to life
than what is seen with the human eye.
To those who listen to the soulful sounds
that sunflowers make
while dancing with the eternal wind of fire,
for the tip of my brush holds purpose.
Grow in peace, and paint the heavens
with pearl-diamond thoughts
that radiate echoes of laughter.
Dance with the sun, kiss the moon,
hold the sea in your arms,
while the wind whispers to the golden Dove.
Grow in joy as you wake up the souls
of those who are passionately evolved
with kindness and gentleness,
that weave their way onto your canvas.
Such giving spirits
