The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Let silence be the art you practice.
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 work of art is an uncommitted crime.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
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.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
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.
