Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
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.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
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.
I'm very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It's the most beautiful compliment, the greatest reward. Art should always be an exchange.
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.
