Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.

Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
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.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
