Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
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.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
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.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
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.
People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It's like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his 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.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
The earth has music for those who listen.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
