Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
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.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
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.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
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.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.

We're not trying to change the world; just music.
A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
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.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
