Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.
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.
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.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
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.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
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.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
