The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
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.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
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.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Play it fuckin' loud!
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.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Artistic talent is a gift from God and whoever discovers it in himself has a certain obligation: to know that he cannot waste this talent, but must develop it.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
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?
