Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
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.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
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.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
The earth has music for those who listen.
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.
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.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
