Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.
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.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
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.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
The earth has music for those who listen.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
