Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
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 earth has music for those who listen.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
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.

Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
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?

Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
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.
