Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I`m on stage they`re not privileged to see me. It`s a privilege for me to see them.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
An artist's duty is rather to stay open-minded and in a state where he can receive information and inspiration. You always have to be ready for that little artistic Epiphany.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
I love rock-n-roll. I think it's an exciting art form. It's revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
