We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
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 was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
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.
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.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
