The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
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.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
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.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
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.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
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.
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.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Let silence be the art you practice.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
