I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
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 doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
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?
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
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.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
