I think another thing is that we don't really want exclusivity. We accept that it is in the artist's interest to be on sale in every place where they sell music.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
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.
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.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
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.
