Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Let silence be the art you practice.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to. But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song. How can it not be?
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
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.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
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.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
