Quotable Creation Care: Vincent Van Gogh on Hope

May 13, 2011


Many people seem to think it is foolish, even superstitious to believe that the world could still change for the better. And it is true that in winter it is sometimes so bitingly cold that one is tempted to say, “what do I care if there is a summer; its warmth is no help to me now.” Yes, evil often seems to surpass good by far. But then in spite of us, and without our permission, there comes at last an end to the bitter frosts. One morning the wind turns, and there is a thaw. And so I must have hope.

Vincent Van Gogh
