Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
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.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
