Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
Let silence be the art you practice.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
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.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
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.

Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
I love rock-n-roll. I think it's an exciting art form. It's revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
