Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high

"Looking at the stars always makes me dream. Why, I ask myself, shouldn't the shining dots of the sky be as accessible as the black dots on the map of France? Just as we take the train to get to Tarascon or Ruen, we take death to reach a star."

Vincent Van Gogh, who killed himself to reach the light that shines through the holes in the night sky. He shot himself in the chest with a revolver. His last words were, "The sadness will last forever."
