Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside

Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
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.
A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
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.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to. But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song. How can it not be?

Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
