Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
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.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
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.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
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.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
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.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
