We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Play it fuckin' loud!
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Let silence be the art you practice.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
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.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
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.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.

Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
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.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
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.
