Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
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 permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
Let silence be the art you practice.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
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.

We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
