Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
Artistic talent is a gift from God and whoever discovers it in himself has a certain obligation: to know that he cannot waste this talent, but must develop it.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
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.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to. But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song. How can it not be?

Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Play it fuckin' loud!
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all 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.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
