Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
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.
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I`m on stage they`re not privileged to see me. It`s a privilege for me to see them.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
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.
