Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
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.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
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.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
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.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
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.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
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 actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
