One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
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.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
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 art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
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 doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
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 accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
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.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
