We're not trying to change the world; just 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.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
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.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
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.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
