Vincent said I was living a lie
whilst he lived and struggled for the truth.
So I thought in the heat of our argument, okay Vincent
所以吵到到气头上 我就想 好啊 文森特
I'll give you your precious truth.
I knew that Theo was in the tertiary stages of syphilis,
any stress financial, emotional or physical could kill him.
任何压力 经济上的 情绪上的 生理上的 都能致命
I said to Vincent,
What do you think the burden of worrying about you is doing to your brother?"
"It's quite likely killing him.
That is the price of your truth,
the price of your path as an artist.
Is it worth it?
That stopped the argument dead.
Vincent come back!
