Vincent van Gogh on OWS


Vincent van Gogh, Sunflowers, 1887

Because I see so many weak ones trodden down, I greatly doubt the sincerity of much that is called progress and civilization, but only in the kind that is founded on real humanity. That which costs human life I think cruel, and I do not respect it.

—–Vincent van Gogh, The Hague, December 1881
