I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
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.
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.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
