“For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”
― Vincent van Gogh
Two of my favourite paintings are Van Gogh’s impressions of starry nights. Lately, I feel like I’m surrounded by quotes about stars and they reminded me of his paintings. His pictures are inspring
. I think it’s the stars in them that capture my interest becasue stars themselves inspire so many.
Stars feature heavily in creative works and they always seem wrapped up with words like dreams and destiny. I think as humans looking up at the stars, we feel empowered yet humble, small in comparison and wishing we could explore them.
“I like the night. Without the dark, we’d never see the stars.”
― Stephenie Meyer, Twilight
“There wouldn’t be a sky full of stars
if we were all meant to wish on the same one.”
– Frances Clark
The stars are with us every night and when we take a minute to look up and admire them, we can’t help but start to imagine and dream because an endless sky helps you feel like anything and everything is possible.
“Shoot for the moon.
Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.”
– Les Brown
“We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.”
― Marilyn Monroe
And finally, I think stars are useful in guiding you home, towards the light and towards your dreams. They remind you that you are special and you should shine just as they do.
When it’s dark, look for stars.
