The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
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.
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.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
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.
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
