Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
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 is never finished, only abandoned.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
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.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
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.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
Let silence be the art you practice.
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.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
