And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Play it fuckin' loud!
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
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.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
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.
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.
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.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
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.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
The earth has music for those who listen.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
