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.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
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.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
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.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I`m on stage they`re not privileged to see me. It`s a privilege for me to see them.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
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.
