Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Play it fuckin' loud!
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
The earth has music for those who listen.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It's like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
I think another thing is that we don't really want exclusivity. We accept that it is in the artist's interest to be on sale in every place where they sell music.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
