If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
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.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
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.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
One thing that really appeals to me is this idea of music being a living thing that has an evolution that, in a way, enables the artist to sell a process rather than a piece of product.
