A great fire in our soul

My Dear Theo,
"Well, what shall I say; our inward thoughts, so they ever show outwardly? There may be a great fire in our soul, but no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a little bit of smoke coming through the chimney, and pass on their way.
--Ever yours, Vincent
Belgium,
July 1880
(Vincent van Gogh)
