To play without passion is inexcusable!
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Play it fuckin' loud!
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
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 aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
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.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
