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.
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.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
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.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
The earth has music for those who listen.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
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.
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.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
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 can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
