Play it fuckin' loud!
One thing that really appeals to me is this idea of music being a living thing that has an evolution that, in a way, enables the artist to sell a process rather than a piece of product.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.

Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
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.
