“Music is good to the melancholy, bad to those who mourn, and neither good nor bad to the deaf”
“Many men are melancholy by hearing music, but it is a pleasing melancholy that it causeth; and therefore to such as are discontent, in woe, fear, sorrow, or dejected, it is a most present remedy”
“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.”
“Great men are always of a nature originally melancholy.”
“When lovely woman stoops to folly, and finds too late that men betray, what charm can soothe her melancholy, what art can wash her guilt away?”
“Melancholy men are of all others the most witty.”
“I want to do drawings which touch people...In figure or landscape I should wish to express, not sentimental melancholy, but serious sorrow.”
Vincent van Gogh
