the best brotherly advice: live sincerely

If we only try to live sincerely, it will go well with us, even though we are certain to experience real sorrow, and great disappointments and also will probably commit great faults and do wrong things, but it certainly is true, that it is better to be high spirited, even though one makes more mistakes than to be narrow-minded and all too prudent.  It is good to love many things, for therein lies the truth strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love, is well done.

~Vincent Van Gough to his Brother
