Deeds and also Words

“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty almost everywhere.”

This quote has been floating around for years. I have no principle if Van Gogh actually sassist or wrote it, yet the sentiment still holds.



Yes, this is a actual quote by Vincent van Gogh (although translated).

It is had in the web page for Vincent van Gogh on Wikiquote, which is mostly a good resource for verifying (alleged) quotes.

As uncovered on Wikiquote, the quote was created by Vincent van Gogh in a letter to his brvarious other, know as "Letter 22".The full letter is obtainable online, including facsimile, transcription, and translation.

The letter was written in Dutch, so the quote as posted in the question is a translation of the original, which is as follows:

Als guys waarachtig van de natuur houdt dan vindt guys ’t overal mooi.
