And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
The earth has music for those who listen.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
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.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
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?
To play without passion is inexcusable!
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through 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.
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.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
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.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
