Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
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.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
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.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
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.
An artist's duty is rather to stay open-minded and in a state where he can receive information and inspiration. You always have to be ready for that little artistic Epiphany.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
