Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
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.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.

Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.

The earth has music for those who listen.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
