The private ownership of great art, its seclusion from the general view of men and women, let alone from that of interested amateurs and scholars, is a curious business. The literal disappearance of a Turner or a Van Gogh into some Middle Eastern or Latin-American bank vault to be kept as investment and collateral, the sardonic decision of a Greek shipping tycoon to put an incomparable El Greco on his yacht, where it hangs at persistent risk — these are phenomena that verge on vandalism.
Bij natuurkunde heb je een beetje van alles wat: je moet goed zijn in puzzelen, maar je moet ook grote lijnen kunnen zien, belangrijke dingen van onbelangrijke dingen kunnen scheiden, snel nieuwe stof in je kunnen opnemen en snel in een voordracht of artikel de essentie kunnen zien.carlo beenakker
During my youth, I was fascinated by the colors of van Goth's paintingsjoseph pisani
My old man said,'Follow the van, Don't dilly-dally on the way!' Off went the cart with the home packed in it, I walked behind with my old cock linnet. But I dillied and dallied, dallied and dillied, Lost the van and don't know where to roam. You can't trust the'specials' like the old time 'coppers' When you can't find your way home.Charles Collins
I have always accepted and respected all other schools of architecture, from the chill and elemental structures of Mies van der Rohe to the imagination and delirium of Gaudi. I must design what pleases me in a way that is naturally linked to my roots and the country of my origin.oscar niemeyer
I sogni non son altro, che van’ ombreImmaginate dal pensier del giorno.giovanni rucellai
We were considering him (Ruud van Nistelrooy) and Francis Jeffers and, in the end, we went for Jeffers.arsène wenger
"All honor to him who shall win the prize," The world has cried for a thousand years; But to him who tries, and who fails and dies, I give great honor and glory and tears. Give glory and honor and pitiful tears To all who fail in their deeds sublime; Their ghosts are many in the van of years, They were born with Time in advance of Time.joaquin miller
Those things are inextricable bound up in my mind, with words I make an image and vice versa.jan theuninck
I sogni non son altro, che van’ ombre Immaginate dal pensier del giorno.
I have fixed my eyes on the spaces that heaven ’s light illuminates , that I may not lay too heavy a strain on the indulgence with which you have accompanied me over the dreary and heartbreaking course by which men have passed to freedom ; and because the light that has guided us is still unquenched, and the causes that have carried us so far in the van of free nations have not spent their power; because the story of the future is written in the past, and that which hath been is the same thing that shall be.
When earth as if on evil dreams Looks back upon her wars, And the white light of Christ outstreams From the red disc of Mars, His fame, who led the stormy van Of battle, well may cease; But never that which crowns the man Whose victory was peace.john greenleaf whittier
Gonzo: Hey, Kermit, are you busy?
Kermit: Yes, Gonzo, but I can give you my ear for a minute.
Gonzo: What would I do with your ear?
Kermit: [exasperated] van Gogh impressions.
I loved moustaches. I used to draw myself with one. When I was 14, I was really into war and van Gogh.billy childish
Jones may well be more effective outside the administration than within it (I think Beck put it as "dangerous." Semantics.) As Ariana Huffington opined in a post September 7 called "Thank You, Glenn Beck!" (The Huffington Post), van Jones was undeniably the best person for this job, but the job wasn't best for him. van Jones is not someone who ought to be stuck behind a desk, calculating tax credits and guarding his opinions from the 24-hour news-culture vultures.van jones
Talk about the van Allen Belt or whatever is that, that forms no part of current Scientology, none whatsoever. Well, you know, quite frankly, this tape here, he's talking about the origins of the universe, and I think you're going to find that in any, any, any religion, and I think you can make the same mockery of it. I think it's offensive that you're doing it here, because I don't think you'd do it somewhere else.david miscavige
The 'Cercle et Carré' group owes its existence to my encounter with the Uruguayan painter Torrès-Gracia in 1929... However difficult our relationship, his obstinacy matching my patience, this unholy team of fire and water was bound to produce something. Towards the end of the year, after consulting sundry artists, including Arp, Mondrian, and van Doesburg, we drew up the program for a new group and launched a magazine which was be called 'Cercle et Carré'.michel seuphor
There are none so blind as they who do not want to see. (Strauss, 1998 p. 320)You can't see the wood for the trees. (van Dertuin, 2006)
Einstein's space is no closer to reality than van Gogh's sky . The glory of science is not in a truth more absolute than the truth of Bach or Tolstoy, but in the act of creation itself. The scientist's discoveries impose his own order on chaos, as the composer or painter imposes his; an order that always refers to limited aspects of reality, and is based on the observer's frame of reference, which differs from period to period as a Rembrant nude differs from a nude by Manet.Arthur Koestler
van Morrison remains a singer who can be compared to no other in the history of modern popular music.greil marcus
I love van Morrison because he always seems to be searching, never found. I don't know about his personal life but in his music he gives the listener only a question. The answer lies elsewhere to be attained someday.van morrison
The Democrats just never learn: Americans don't really care which side of an issue you're on as long as you don't act like pussies. When van Jones called the Republicans assholes, he was paying them a compliment. He was talking about how they can get things done even when they're in the minority, as opposed to the Democrats, who can't seem to get anything done even when they control both houses of Congress, the presidency, and Bruce Springsteen.

In fact most of the available evidence points to the conclusion that a systematic decimation of the Armenian population in the eastern provinces had already been decided on by the Ittihad ve Terakki regime, and that the troubles in van and elsewhere merely served as a convenient excuse for getting a program of mass deportations and large-scale extermination.
I'm only alive so van can use me. In the end, only those of us who are useful are kept alive out of pity... …van…Destroy…Lorelei
