A Quote by Vincent van Gogh on art, artist, seeking, and finding

Mauve takes offense at my having said, "I am an artist" - which I do not take back, because that word included, of course, the meaning: always seeking without absolutely finding.  As far as I know, that word means: "I am seeking, I am striving, I am in with all my heart."
