Vincent van Gogh Quote
Now, there are people who say to me Why did you have anything to do with her, — that's one fact. And there are people who say to her, Why did you have anything to do with him, — that's another fact.
Apart from that, both she and I have grief enough and trouble enough, but as for regrets — neither of us have any. Look here — I believe without question, or have the certain knowledge, that she loves me. I believe without question, or have the certain knowledge, that I love her. It has been sincerely meant. But has it also been foolish, etc?
Perhaps, if you like — but aren't the wise ones, those who never do anything foolish, even more foolish in my eyes than I am in theirs?
Letter to Theo (October 1884)
